Bud’s Glass Joint, a locally-owned and operated Arizona head shop, invites the public to Buds-A-Palooza, an inaugural 4/20 kick-off celebration on Friday, April 15, 2022. The all night event will take place from 4:20 p.m. to midnight, just south of Roosevelt on 5th Street in downtown Phoenix.
The springtime extravaganza will span four city blocks and include live music from local and national bands as well as other canna-inspired entertainment. Buds-A-Palooza presents headliner, Passafire, a national band continuing to reimagine the rock-reggae landscape. Tickets can be purchased for $15 on eventbrite. Prices increase April 1.
Highlighting southwest cannabis culture and lifestyle, attendees will experience a captivating night of nonstop action including the Arizona Glass Masters glass blowing competition, laugh out loud comedy acts, and classic stoner flicks. Savory bites and brews will be on tap and work from local artists will also be on display.
Buds-A-Palooza is presented by Trulieve and made possible by local brands and the Arizona cannabis community. Sponsored entertainment includes the Zen Leaf comedy lounge, AZ Natural Concepts (ANC) Vendor Village, the Arizona Organix stoner flicks showcase, and the Ogeez! live music lineup. The Munchie Mall is sponsored by Philadelphia Sandwich Company, encompassing local food trucks, mobile kitchens, and eight different bars.
“Buds-A-Palooza is an event that locals and visitors won’t want to miss. We’re hosting the largest 420 block party to date and invite the community to a fun-filled, canna-inspired, celebration of Phoenix arts & the counter culture,” said event organizer Bud Meister.
A portion of the proceeds from Buds-A-Palooza will be donated to Trees Matter, a 501(c)(3) environmental education nonprofit based in Phoenix, whose mission is to inspire and promote an increased tree canopy in the Valley.
