What a long, strange trip it has been, Emerald Cup Family, but what a trip it is to think about our origin in 2004 as a friendly, yet mostly anonymous contest in an undiscosed location somewhere in the infamous Emerald Triangle, to today as the Emerald Cup openly and proudly continues a 20-year tradition of celebrating the cannabis plant, its diverse culture, and the farmers and producers who ethically bring it to market.

Your Legacy Is Our Legacy
Let’s Make History Together

This history-making 20th Annual Emerald Cup will be hosted on Aug 17th & 18th, 2024 at the newly renovated Henry J. Kaiser Center for the Arts, a destination location with its own storied history just steps from Lake Merritt in downtown Oakland.
