The first year that the Emerald Cup was held at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds in Santa Rosa, people were anxious to attend. Now in its 12th year, the Emerald Cup has become the world's largest and most respected outdoor organic cannabis competition.

This year's Cup, happening Dec. 12–13, will be the biggest yet with great music, top-tier speakers and panels, hands-on workshops, on-site physician recommendations and more than 200 vendors.

The list of guest speakers includes politicians Fiona Ma, state Board of Equalization member, and Assemblyman Ken Cooley, as well as entrepreneurs, cannabis cultivators and a host of scientists and lawyers. There will also be plenty of entertainment, as Santa Barbara roots-reggae rockers Rebelution and Oakland's worldly electronica outfit Beats Antique headline the Healing Harvest Music Hall with a host of other exciting acts. There's even some "cannabis comedy" slated for the event, and the whole weekend wraps up with the awards ceremony.

The Emerald Cup takes place on Saturday–Sunday, Dec. 12–13, at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds, 1350 Bennett Valley Road, Santa Rosa. Saturday, 11am to 10:30pm; Sunday, 11am to 7:30pm. $55–$100; 18 and over.
