Executive Producer Don Pickett feels strongly about people’s enlightenment regarding the hemp industry: “With one amazing plant, hemp gives us a plethora of opportunities to improve not only our own health, but the health of the planet as well. I’d like to share that with everyone and let people know what hemp can do – which is literally everything!” Participants in this event will showcase a variety of educators, entertainers, and business vendors that will do just that.
The music festival portion, AsheJam, features a variety of popular names in the industry across several genres. Co-Producer Dustin Uhrig says, “It’s really cool to see the way that music can bring people together. With this many bands from all across the board, everyone who attends will have something for them to enjoy!”

Vendors will include a variety of brands in the hemp, arts, environmental health, and natural healing fields. There is still time for businesses to apply and participate, putting their brand in front of thousands of attendees. Sign-up information can be found at
