From humble origins, the 420 legacy has grown into a celebration of global proportions. Celebrated on April 20 each year, the festivities take many forms, though the love of cannabis and community appreciation continues. Today, parties celebrating the unofficial sacred day of weed range from large-scale vintage smoking sessions to headline productions headlined by reggae legends and chart-topping rappers. The day is getting closer, and with more and more states adopting legalization, there are more 420 events happening than ever before. With that in mind, here’s a look at ten of the top 420 events happening across the country.

The Marley Brothers at Red Rocks Amphitheater

Morrison, Colorado: April 19-20

The math here is simple: add some of reggae’s biggest names to one of the most iconic venues in the entire United States and that equals 420 unmissable experiences. That’s what you can take advantage of at Colorado’s famous Red Rocks Amphitheater, which will host the Marley Brothers for two unforgettable nights. On April 19, Ziggy, Stephen, Damian, and Ky-Mani Marley will be performing with special guests Sean Paul and Protoje. On April 20, the Bob Marley Kids returned for another show, this one with Steel Balls, Lee “Scratch” Perry and more. This must be some seriously special nights—a red rock specialty.
