Seattle’s Hempfest needs money to survive

Seattle’s Hempfest needs money to survive

Seattle Hempfest, the iconic pot festival, is having money troubles.

The festival is scheduled for Aug. 19 through Aug 21 at Myrtle Edwards Park.

And money or not, the 25th version of Hempfest will take place, says Vivian McPeak, the festival’s executive director and a co-founder. There could be some cutbacks this year.

But the 26th version in 2017 is in doubt.

“If we can’t pay our bills, we may not go on next year,” he said.

Hempfest has started a gofundme page to raise money. It has a goal of raising $150,000 and has collected $390 since fundraising began in mid-June. It has attracted only 11 donors.
