Festival Celebrating Hash, Glass, Art & Music set for July

Chalice California Cannabis Now

Chalice California is coming!


Chalice California is, above all, a celebration of cannabis concentrates and seemingly endless rounds of dabs are guaranteed to be enjoyed by many at the fourth annual event set for July 7-9. Held at the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds in Victorville, California, the 2017 event has top name musical acts that include Ice Cube and STS9.

Some of the biggest artists in the glassblowing world are also included in the festival alongside many of the state’s best concentrate makers. According to event founder Doug Dracup, last year’s event drew 25,000 festivalgoers and this year’s Chalice is set to be even larger.

“This year we’re setting a different standard with Chalice,” Dracup said. “We’re adding attractions and different art installations that have never happened at this kind of festival before. We’re putting a $1 million — $2 million lineups out there for music — and we’re spending more than $100,000 on art installations.”

The festival began in 2014 and has since expanded to become one of the most anticipated events of the year. Hotel companies in Victorville have already taken note, with Motel 6 charging upwards of $250 for a one-night stay.

In addition to the festivities at the Chalice, which will include live glassblowing and painting, there is also a cannabis competition to judge flower, solvent concentrates, non-solvent concentrates (hash and rosin) and CBD.
