Ann Arbor, Mich. – Ann Arbor’s annual Hash Bash has been postponed due to concerns about COVID-19.
The event was anticipated to start at “high noon” on April 4 at the University of Michigan Diag and typically brings thousands of people to downtown Ann Arbor to listen to speakers, cannabis educators and activists, as well as music.
In a series of tweets, Hash Bash organizer Nick Zettel postponed the annual cannabis celebration.
"It is with a heavy heart that we must postpone the 49th Hash Bash. To protect the health and safety of our participants, we will not be gathering on the Diag this April. We are so grateful for you, our attendees, Monroe Street Fair, and U of M. We love you all!"-Nick Zettell— Ann Arbor Hash Bash (@A2HashBash) March 12, 2020
Through email, Zettell confirmed that the Hash Bash was postponed in accordance with the University of Michigan’s recent mandate on large events and Michigan’s recently declared state-of-emergency.
The Monroe Street Fair, which accompanied Hash Bash, has also been canceled due to the University of Michigan decision.
