If you’re ready to get mile-high this Saturday, you aren’t alone. In fact, you’ve got your choice of plenty of local and regional festivals, concerts, performances and more, all celebrating Colorado’s de facto state plant. Here are just a few we’re most looking forward to. Smoke up; you’ve earned it.

With not one but two full nights of entertainment, Mile HIGH Burlesque Fest has you covered all weekend. The dancers, on the other hand, will be removing their coverings one teasing performance at a time. Enjoy weed-themed shows and contests, different each night.

Cannival Elevated Music Fest

April 19-21, times vary, I Bar Ranch, 850 County Road 49, Gunnison, $30-$70, ages 21+,

You hardcore smokers and tokers might appreciate this: a three-day, 4/20-themed camp-out with three nights of live music, vendors, food trucks, bonfires, hiking and biking, workshops, yoga and way more. Best part: Sunday’s events are free to attend.

Mile High 420 Festival
