The inaugural Oregon Cannabis Growers’ Fair (OCGF) will take place on August 13-14, at the Oregon State Fairgrounds in Salem.


“The Cannabis Growers’ Fair was created to showcase and promote Oregon’s fastest-growing agricultural business,” Don Morse, executive director of the Oregon Cannabis Business Council, the creator of the event, said. “This is unprecedented. Oregon is at the forefront in recognizing cannabis as a real agricultural product.”

Appearing as a guest judge in the live plant competition will be noted horticulturist, author and columnist Ed Rosenthal, also known as the “Guru of Ganja,” who has written or edited more than a dozen books on cannabis cultivation and social policy. Rosenthal will be signing his latest book, Big Book of Buds: Greatest Hits, at the OCGF.

Energy Trust of Oregon will give a presentation each day of the event, focusing on lighting and HVAC opportunities for attendees; representatives from the Oregon Department of Agriculture will be in attendance; and the Oregon Liquor Control Commission’s Recreational Cannabis Division will provide updates regarding final rules and regulations for cannabis cultivation, processing and sales.

The Oregon Cannabis Growers’ Fair is an opportunity to bring the entire industry under one roof to learn from “master growers.” The Fair will serve to share ideas, new technology, review rules and regulations, learn about testing and much more about this new and “budding” industry that is growing at rapid speed, Burton said.

The Oregon Cannabis Growers Fair is produced by the Cannabis Collaborative Conference and the Oregon Cannabis Business Council. Admission is $20 to the general public, 21 years of age and older.

    I would love to go this event where I could talk to the people who are growing the marijuana and our state these days. I think I would be a wonderful opportunity to thank them for their service and hard work; if you’ve ever grown it you know it’s not easy. What a bliss filled event, I’d love to go!

    I’d love to go to this event because I’m a new medical marijuana patient for PTSD. I’ve been trying to learn about and attend cannabis-related events. I’ve found the medicine to be life-changing! I am considering learning how to grow at home and think this would be a great starting point. And I love any kind of fair!

  15. Dave G. August 9, 2016 at 12:59 pm #

    Would be a great learning experience. Also, how cool is it that Ed is judging? Could also introduce many opportunities for me in the industry.

    Events like this that are focused on furthering the professionalism and validity of cannabis as a legitimate industry make it easier for someone like me to live a life of normalcy and richness. I consider it my duty to know as much as I can as a consumer, a caretaker, and veteran in order to support all the historical advancements happening in Oregon and in the country. I would consider it an honor to attend the fair. Cannabis now, cannabis forever!

  24. Brett August 9, 2016 at 10:57 pm #

    Still haven’t made it to a Marijuana event yet! This might be the best one yet! Thanks for the chance

  25. Ian August 10, 2016 at 6:22 am #

    I’d love to win some tix, then tinder it up with s line like “hey I have some tickets to the growers fest… I’m looking for a heady momma to come with”. Solid gold.

  26. Mike August 10, 2016 at 9:01 am #

    I love salem

  27. Kathy Rankin August 10, 2016 at 10:13 am #

    I’d like to go to add this to my list of events I have attended, so that my documentation efforts are shared online with others who cannot go; I take photo’s of events I attend and post them in an effort to educate others (with information I obtain at the event). I feel that most people don’t know much about the difference in male or female plants, or different strains and how they are created from one strain. I myself have learned a great deal by attending several other events in the local area, such as the Marijuania March and the Hemp Stalk Festival. I have attended these events in the past and have really enjoyed going and meeting the people who run the booths, the growners, the vendors, and seeing what new products are out there. With the laws constantly changing and the prices changing to buy it, I would like to learn more about growing it and how to make a particular strain. Hopefully the growers there can explain that to me as I would like to share this information with some photos I take with others who couldn’t go!
    Share the knowledge, help others and stop living in pain!

    • Kathy Rankin August 10, 2016 at 10:14 am #

      Correction: Growers not “growners.” Although we are all grown ups going to this, must be 21 right?

    • Kathy Rankin August 12, 2016 at 5:02 pm #

      I would like to learn to grow my own and use them as edibles instead. I love the plant itself and would like to learn more about the various strains. Besides, I really want to meet the growers and see if I know anyone from the hempstalk festival!

  28. Sandra Leavens August 11, 2016 at 2:20 am #

    I have a green thumb growing just about anything, but I believe their is a special talent to growing a perfect Marijuana plant so I want to go and learn from the best.

  29. ROBIN HENDRICKSON August 11, 2016 at 5:57 am #

    Love that these kinds of things are happening.

  30. Benji August 11, 2016 at 7:12 am #

    I would love to win these because my partner and I are here from all the way from NYC. I love growing and seeing how this plant transformers itself every passing week.

  31. Brian August 11, 2016 at 10:08 am #

    Would love to go to a event like this.

  32. Ryan August 11, 2016 at 12:45 pm #

    I would enjoy this opportunity!

  36. Mark Yeckel August 11, 2016 at 3:26 pm #

    I have been apart of the marijuana growing community for 4 years now. I quit my job as a chef to peruse this passion, and it was the best decision I ever made. My mother was diagnosed with stage 3 endometrial cancer, and became my first medical patient and I just kept going from there. Ever and any opportunity I can get to expand my knowledge I seize! I would love to get tickets to this event!

  37. Jessica Thomas August 11, 2016 at 3:57 pm #

    New PDX resident & passionate about cannabis! Would love the opportunity to join the field!

    I am an Attorney, Sociologist, Steam Punk builder, Musician, and a collector of obscure curios both living and dead, I must learn about these Marijuanas and their applications in my ongoing research.

  41. Doug Child August 11, 2016 at 9:08 pm #

    I’d like to take my stepson, since he and his business partner are just starting up! This would be a great way for him to get in the mix.

    Hello! I have never been to the Oregon State Fair and would love to experience all that the Fair offers including the Cannabis showcase. It would be a great opportunity to discuss a topic with the officials and leaders and fellow growers in the industry that I believe needs attention and that is to create an extension service for cannabis cultivation!!
