Our week of 420 celebrations could not be complete without a party – and what a party this was! Sunday evening found us at SmokedTO’s 420 Ball – an extravagant evening combining the best of cannabis and ballroom culture. We at CAFE were happy to take part in this awesome event, providing a backdrop for party guests to take pictures, and supplying SWAG bags for giveaways. Of course, we were more than happy to party it up as well with the crew from SmokedTO!
The 420 Ball took place in a cozy venue in downtown Toronto, minutes away from three of our four CAFE dispensary locations. We loved the eclectic feel of the space, which exuded fun the minute we stepped through the doors. With its neon signs, mood lighting and split-level seating and bar areas, Hush Hush Bar was definitely the perfect space to host a party. House music by DJ BlackCat set the vibe, and a runway was set up in the middle of the room for the highlight event – a fashion and skills competition with trophies and cash prizes up for grabs! Contestants strutted their stuff and battled it out on the runway, to cheers and roars of applause from the crowd. The competition was tight with so many talented entrants – we bet the judges had a tough time choosing the winners!
SmokedTO’s 420 Ball was a celebration of cannabis and culture, and also showcased some amazing talent from Toronto’s LGBT scene. CAFE is proud to align with initiatives that support emerging talent and encourage creativity within the city. We are especially proud to support and be present at events such as SmokedTO, which represent black, POC and queer culture.
