Hash Bash 2024 in Ann Arbor, MI

The celebration of all things cannabis on the first Saturday of April

Dates: April 6, 2024

The first Saturday of April might be your best day in Ann Arbor! On that day each year, the Monroe Street Fair and Hash Bash festival are held on the University of Michigan campus. The event is a blend of live music, street vending, speeches, and occasional civil disobedience. All the events have the goal of reforming local, state, and federal regulations on marijuana.

Hash Bash usually occurs at noon on the University of Michigan Diag. The festival was first held on April 1, 1972, and has been taking place every year since, mostly on the first Saturday of April. The gathering attracts thousands of cannabis fans who smoke, vape or ingest marijuana. It is possible to see people sharing joints or bowls with old and new friends at the event. However, you must remember that in Michigan, it's illegal to use cannabis in public.

The Monroe Street Fair is a big part of Hash Bash. Held on Monroe Street from 9 am to 6 pm, the fair offers a diverse program with a live show and street vendors selling fancy water pipes and other products. The fair and the festival are free to attend. No parking is available.

Hash Bash Cup is held at Wyndham Garden Hotel & Hampton Inn & Suites over the weekend. The Hash Bash Afterparty is another popular event, held at a local club. So, if you want to experience the true spirit of the marijuana community of Ann Harbor, head to the UM campus and spend an afternoon meeting new friends and sharing a joint or two!
