News Joint Events is ecstatic to announce one-of-two cannabis events we are producing this spring. For our first event (second event announcement coming soon), News Joint Events, in collaboration with the City of Carbondale, is scheduled to host the first-of-its-kind open-consumption cannabis experience in downtown Carbondale with our inaugural Eve of the Eclipse Cannabis Carnival: A Masquerade and Cosplay Party. This event is free to all adults 21 years of age or older.

The Eve of the Eclipse Cannabis Carnival invites all adults to don their best costume or masquerade disguise (or don’t) and visit the designated outdoor open-consumption area located at 200 South Washington St. in Carbondale. The Eve of the Eclipse Cannabis Carnival is set for 3-10 p.m. April 7, 2024, and will host complimentary cannabis bars, vendors, masquerade/costume contest, games, and prizes.

Vendors interested in attending the Eve of the Eclipse Cannabis Carnival can sponsor a booth here (through the ticket portal). Vendors willing to also sponsor merchandise and/or samples products for game prizes and giveaways receive a 25% discount off the booth fee. Other potential sponsors for the event (for prizes, giveaways, and others sponsorships) can contact Jason Brown at News Joint Events can be found on Instagram at @newsjointevents.

News Joint Events is the cannabis-friendly events planning and consulting service from Illinois News Joint. News Joint Events curates 3-4 major cannabis-consumption events per year, as well as monthly events with a focus on central and southern Illinois locations. We curate a wide range of events, from academic conferences to carnival masquerades, and we partner with event planners, municipalities, cannabis communities, associations, vendors, sponsors, brands, influencers, and performers for custom consulting.

Since adult-use legalization in Illinois, we have attended and/or participated in more than one hundred cannabis events. From those events, we have procured lists of the best event locations, vendors, food trucks, performers, artist, and other industry contacts. We utilize these lists to individually customize event needs to fit the exact style and motif for our events and other event planners. Our lists of cannabis industry insiders can accommodate any cannabis-related event, from industry events to homegrown cups, and these connections will contribute not only great products and services but also passionate vibes.

The purpose of News Joint Events is to contribute to as many safe, friendly, and legal cannabis events to help the normalization of the cannabis community and cannabis-friendly events in Illinois.
