Black & Green Juneteenth Soiree

Juneteenth is a holiday to be recognized and celebrated for the symbolic end of slavery in America. Angel Fire’s reason for producing The Black & Green Soiree is to represent the accomplishments of Black people, despite the history of longstanding oppression. This elevated experience is a time to reflect on the past, recognize our progression and take action towards creating a more collective community. Pull up or tap into this hybrid (virtual and in person tickets available) cultural experience. This event was designed for the canna-curious and cana-serious.

RSVP here!

Virginia Vitals Symposium

Virginia recently made some major legislative changes surrounding cannabis. On December 30th from 6pm-9pm (EST), Angel Fire hosted a symposium to help Virginians (and non-Virginians alike) become more educated and navigate intricacies involving cannabis. Presenters spoke on a number of topics including cannabis wellness, cannabis laws, cannabis justice, parenting (in relation to cannabis) and community service. This event was sponsored by Natural High Co., The Artsy Leaf and Mommies and Mary Jane. Music/Entertainment was provided by DJ LA. Presentations were as follows:
