VIRGINIA BEACH (WAVY) — A trade show coming to the Virginia Beach Convention Center will celebrate Virginia’s new cannabis laws.
CannaFest VA is happening Sept. 19 and includes a car show and concert in addition to a cannabis-themed trade show.
Anyone can attend, but promoters say those under 21 won’t be permitted to participate in cannabis sharing or free giveaways.
Virginia’s new cannabis laws that took effect in July don’t allow for sales of cannabis yet, but you can give it away for free. You’re also not allowed to smoke it in public (no smoking of vaping is allowed inside the convention center).
The event will run from 2-8 p.m. and feature a custom car and bike show with a $500 prize for “Best in Show” bike. “No Diggity” singers Blackstreet will reunite in Virginia Beach to kick off a yearlong 25th anniversary tribute to their hit album “Another Level,” though without original member Teddy Riley, who no longer performs with the group. Blackstreet used to record at Riley’s studio on Virginia Beach Blvd.
Tickets start at $75 for advance standing room only tickets. Children 5 and under can go for free with an adult.
