4/20 FAQ and Road Closures

420 GGP Road Closures

On April 20, an estimated 20,000 people will descend on Hippie Hill in Golden Gate Park to celebrate all things cannabis. The 4/20 tradition, said to date back to the 1970s, is now an  organized event and City departments are working in coordination with the event organizer to ensure a safe, clean, and healthy event for everyone. Additional security, portable toilets, and busses will be provided to the area. For health and safety reasons, we are advising everyone to buy their cannabis at a licensed dispensary before they come to the event. No cannabis sales will be permitted onsite and buying or accepting cannabis from unlicensed vendors puts you at risk for ingesting contaminated product. Pets will not be allowed at the event this year, along with glass, alcohol, cooking or grilling equipment. For a full list of prohibited items, click here.
