The first YesWeCann parade was in 2015, through Eureka, California and proceeded to the first ever Cannifest. Reclaiming the name Farmer for the cannabis cultivators of Humboldt is an ongoing process. Much like a ‘coming out’ for the local cannabis community, our community no longer needs to hide from the public.  Stepping out of the shadows and into the light is hard to do alone, yet together it feels like home.

Our mission is to create a  space for cannabis patients, farmers, consumers, businesses, and other local communities to interact and learn from each other. Together, we can make a better future for everybody.

Bringing the parade to Arcata is that natural evolution in the hope of creating a yearly event.
