Tim Blake


Tim Blake, Founder, The Emerald CupLike most folks, I grew up looking forward every year to going to the county fair and enjoying the fall harvest of the local fruits and vegetables. I always relished taking in all the different smells and delights. I wanted to create a version of that for outdoor cannabis growers. I felt we had the right to our own celebration; a cannabis country fair! It’s been quite a journey to watch us grow from our humble beginnings into such a large event that draws thousands of people from all over the country. Over the years our speaker panels and workshops have also become highly respected. Who would have thought our all night celebration would turn into a cannabis gathering of this magnitude? I’m truly humbled and grateful for the people that have been with us and supported the event over the past 10 years. We’re all part of the growing Emerald Cup family. Dreams come true if you try hard enough. Mine has. We hope you’ll join us.
