Nothing resonates with the taste of spring like a gathering of foodies on a Sunday afternoon – and what more appropriate in April, than a 420-medicated theme? That’s precisely what’s on the menu Sunday April 10, as TrapCulture puts on the Mangia Ganja Food Festival, featuring the Who’s-Who of the Arizona cannabis community, with a focus on local edibles.
Each of the 30 onsite food vendors are current manufacturers and distributors within the state (although nothing infused will officially be on sale at the event). However, festival-goers can expect to get the sampling of a life-time, with booths giving away free yet potent bite-sized versions of those signature munchies (and even rarer concoctions you can’t find in stores).
You can start nibbling early; doors open mid-morning (10am VIP/11am GA), with musical acts performing throughout the day. Contests will also decide local watermelon-eating champ, and top competitive dabbers, both in county fair fashion. Art exhibitions spotlighting fourteen local artists, in addition to 20 live-painters, will help create a visually-powerful, mind-altering experience that continues through late afternoon.
There’s no more intensely-chill culinary experience like it; whether foodie or just plain cannabis enthusiast. Arrive early so you have time to let things kick in – and get your groove on.
