Saturday- 10 am – 7 pm with After Hours Music with local and national touring acts

Sunday – 12 pm – 7 pm (Vendor After Party at Meddlesome Brewery. 1.7 miles from the Mid-South Hemp Fest, click here for directions)

Due to Zoo takeover and construction, we are having to switch venues. They are turning it into a temporary parking lot. This new venue allows us many advantages most importantly being able to find easy parking as A1 Parking will provide parking services.

Check out a very early map of festival (subject to change)

It was because of sponsorships last year that we ended up having the largest cannabis event in the state. With over 100 vendors and a dozen food trucks this event attracts thousands from all over the country.

2020 will be even bigger!

LabCannaPresenting Sponsor
LabCanna sprouted into life after the launch of their flagship product line TenneCBD in 2014. LabCanna officially started in January of 2016 after Co-Founders, Joshua Camp and Ian Leadon decided to take part in Tennessee’s Industrial Hemp Research Program offered by Tennessee State under the Federal 2014 Farm Bill. In April of 2016, LabCanna was awarded the first ever Hemp Processing License by the State of Tennessee. LabCanna was also among the first to receive a hemp growers’ license in Tennessee which was immediately put to use on their farm in Franklin, Tennessee.

Among the nations first CBD products to market, TenneCBD saw incredible growth during its inaugural years, setting the pace for LabCanna’s massive expansion into every phase of the industrial hemp industry. This expansion includes a state-of-the art processing facility in Centerville, Tennessee. This processing facility (we call it the lab) allows LabCanna to aid companies expand their production to stay ahead of demand.

LabCanna holds offices in East Nashville near their first retail location, LabCanna East which opened in January of 2019.

Harvest by LabCanna, a community centric coffee house and restaurant opened its doors in May of 2019.

LabCanna does still grow hemp in Franklin, TN where the story began, but has recently added an additional farmland for the 2019 hemp grow operation with the purchase of Grinders Switch Farms.
