After 24 years of grass-roots community activism resulting in the largest cannabis rally in the world, Seattle HEMPFEST is proud to continue bringing top quality hemp and 420 culture products to the Seattle area. The Pacific Northwest’s only 420 Culture Boutique, HEMPFEST Central, is moving to a larger space in anticipation of the 25th anniversary of the Seattle HEMPFEST, in 2016.
In addition to the hemp boutique, HEMPFEST Central is also the location of the production offices for the Seattle HEMPFEST protest rally. The new location, just a few blocks from the old Lake City Way address, has even more production office space than the old offices.

Lake City Was, HEMPFEST Central is your one stop hemp shop for everything cannabis — except cannabis. Featuring hemp clothes, hats, backpacks, fanny-packs, stationary, even pet products!
