On Saturday, June 9, 2018, Cynthiana, Kentucky will host the first annual Kentucky Hemp Days. It includes a full day of educational speakers, live music, hemp and Kentucky artisan vendors, food and craft beer and Ananda Hemp farm tours from 9AM - 4PM. Harrison County was the location for the first legal 500 acre hemp farm in Kentucky (Ananda Hemp), so what better way to celebrate the history and future of the hemp industry than right here in Cynthiana/Harrison County? The US Hemp Round Table will host a press conference with several key members of Congress during the day. Below you will find the schedule of events. All events throughout the day are free to the public.
