420 at Hippie Hill plans to return for 2022 after being canceled for the past two years.
If you see a big haze descend over Golden Gate Park on Wednesday, don’t be so quick to blame Karl the Fog. 420 on Hippie Hill has long been a San Francisco tradition on April 20th cramming in thousands of people for an unpermitted and unofficial “festival.” But now the city has given its blessing for what is being called the “biggest free cannabis event in the Bay Area.” And this year it gets even more “legal” as the festival hosts a Hippie Hill “Farmers Market” with on-site cannabis sales planned for the first time.
420 Hippie Hill runs from 10am to 5pm and is 21+. No tickets are necessary
Get there early (the entrance gets crammed later) to stake a spot to hear herb-fueled sets by DJ Shortkut and Berner, comedy from Jeff Ross and Hannibal Buress, plus an “appearance” by Mike Tyson, whatever that entails. The highlight, of course, comes right at 4:20 p.m. when the festival goes all up in smoke.
They will have on-site cannabis sales and a special Hippie Hill menu. 2022 features @berner415 @miketyson @hannibalburess @therealjeffross + a Special tribute to Robin Williams & Bob Saget, DJ’s @shortkut @djdojah @jahyzer & Special Guests + Much More.
Hippie Hill Farmers Market 🌿 + #SF’s best food trucks and activations by all the biggest and best cannabis brands in the industry!
420 at Hippie Hill is a well-known San Francisco tradition, bringing tens of thousands of people from all over to Robin William Meadow (formerly Sharon Meadow) in Golden Gate Park to celebrate the right to use cannabis.
In previous years, this “festival” was unpermitted and unofficial. It was awesome, but growing larger every year, with increased violence and the amount of trash left behind was unbelievable. Seriously… it was 11 tons in 2016.
To avoid a shutdown and make sure to make the event safe for everyone, the city actually permitted the event, bringing in sponsorships to help pay for fencing all around the perimeter, increased security, port-o-potties (so necessary), food vendors/trucks, plus a sound system and DJs for entertainment.
