The marijuana festival, Burn Out Fest, sold more than 600 tickets, but was unfortunately canceled two days before it took place.
This was going to be the first festival legally granted by the California State Bureau of Cannabis Control until Burn Out Festival was canceled in the last minute by officials.
According to the organizers, the festival’s permit was pulled on Jan. 25 by the City of Tulare. It was scheduled to take place on Jan. 27 at the Tulare County Fairgrounds with nearly 1,000 attendees expected. The event advertised a day featuring art, live music and marijuana vendors.
“This was supposed to be a historical event,” promoter Tully Huffaker told Visalia Times-Delta. “We are now scrambling to salvage what we can.”
The event aims to be held at a later date in April at another location, in which Huffaker said his team is considering venues in Sacramento, Los Angeles and the Central Coast.
