“The 14th SweetWater 420 Fest is well underway, and the SweetWater Brew team and I are working closely to make this Fest the best one yet! Our patrons enjoyed the double set format of our jam band headliners at last 420 Fest so we are sticking with this again this year,” said Jennifer Bensch, President, Happy Ending Productions. “I’m just as excited that we are able to keep our 3 day ticket pricing the same for the 3rd consecutive year!”
420 Fest will continue its eco-friendly focus with waste diversion, compost creation, Planet 420 environmental village, charitable donations, and recyclable cups. In total, 420 Fest has diverted close to 160,000 lbs from landfills by recycling, created 55,000 lbs compost, and 420 Fest Gas South Corn Hole Challenge has donated nearly $90,000 to charities.
