Art

When in need of calm, make your way to the immersive “Flowers Are Not a Crime” art piece.

The cannabis-themed chapel by LA-based artist Laurie Chapiro and Weedmaps features wall-to-wall floral images and invites visitors to walk through the space and reflect.

“It will feel like a peaceful chapel inside without any music,” says Laurie Chapiro. “A place to have a peaceful moment of reflection to admire the cannabis plant and reflect on the beauty of nature which connects us.”

Kicker Comedy

At 6:55 p.m., kick back in the air-conditioned Kicker Comedy Stage and watch Sibling Rivalry: Bob the Drag Queen & Monet X Change.

Monét X Change, Miss Congeniality of RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 10 and winner of AS4 and Bob The Drag Queen, winner of Season 8 are the comedy duo with infectious chemistry behind the hit podcast Sibling Rivalry.

Experience

Mixologists are teaching free and interactive cocktail seminars all weekend.

Bacardí will host a cocktail school where guests will learn how to craft a Bacardí mojito through a competitive fast-paced El Coco Relay race.

25 stations will be set up where guests will learn about the mojito’s history and then do a rum tasting to identify their favorite rum to use.

Guests will compete against one another and will be judged based on a variety of factors, ending with a final “cheers” among the attendees.

The Cocktail School will take place on Saturday from 6–7 p.m. at the Bunkhouse Saloon.
