Q. Who is speaking at CANFest?
A. The complete list is coming together now.
Q. Will people be smoking pot at this festival?
A. Smoking pot is illegal in Florida unless your name is Irvin Rosenfeld, Elvy Musikka or George McMahon. Using cannabis is an act of civil disobedience. We are not advocating acts of civil disobedience at this event.
Q. How much does the event cost?
A. This rain or shine event is free and open to the public. Our sponsors, vendors and advertisers offset the operating costs.
Q. Can I spend the night?
A. Absolutely! You can camp at Wickham Park adjacent to the festival grounds for a small fee or take advantage of local hotels at discount rates.
Q. Do you have to be 18 to attend?
A. You have to be 18 to vote, but not to be educated. Learn the truth about the cannabis culture, this incredible plant and the failed policies we call the "War on Drugs."
Q. Can I bring my pet?
A. All Brevard Co. pet policies are observed at this event. Crowd-friendly pets are welcome and your personal responsiblity.
Q. Are you serving beer?
A. We are not serving alcohol at this event. Glass containers and bottles are not permitted on the festival grounds.
Q. Will there be a lot of police?
A. There will be less police than if we served beer! Expect Melbourne Police to be on hand to do their job of protecting and serving our community. Attorneys and observers are on-hand to ensure a peaceful educational event.
Q. What shall I bring?
A. Be sure to bring your camera, a blanket or chair if you want, wear sunscreen and weather appropriate clothes. You'll find food, beverages, art and First Amendment items for donation. Volleyballs, hackey sacks, frisbees, drums, a sense of humor and a spirit of adventure are encouraged.
