A new festival dedicated to medical marijuana, the Confederation Festival, is planned for this weekend in Stanley Bridge, P.E.I.
The festival will happen Saturday at Creekside Cottages in Stanley Bridge.
“It’s all about information, education and enjoying the camaraderie of being with like-minded people,” said Craig Gaudet, who is organizing the event with business partner Luc LeBlanc.
Festivals celebrating medicinal pot have been happening for years in other provinces, the business partners said.
“I decided a few months ago that we needed one here on the Island,” said Gaudet. “My partner and me discussed it and we decided to have one — it’s been rushed.”
