August 27th, 2015 – Oregonlive.com: Portland gives Hempstalk festival a third chance, approves 2015 waterfront event

We finally got the City of Portland to issue a permit for us to have our free, annual Hempstalk event at Waterfront Park this year.  The event will be held on October 17th and 18th.  We hope to see you all there!

It was a long, tiresome process, but in the end truth prevailed.  The city voted to overturn the original denial of our permit.  Even normally conservative City Commissioner Dan Saltzman agreed that the City was applying a “double standard” to our event, as many other events held at Waterfront Park have rampant marijuana use.

So folks, we are on for another great event.  For more information please visit the Hempstalk website at www.Hempstalk.org
