With our stellar Vendor Days lineup, spring flowers on the way, and 420 around the corner, this weekend is time to lighten up and get out for some laughs! Start by meeting Pacific Northwest heavy hitters, North Coast Growers and Seattle’s Private Reserve, then head to the Upfront for some side-splitting improv hilarity!
North Coast Growers
First off, local favorite, North Coast Growers, is a bustling tier-2 producer/processor located in Anacortes, WA. They maintain a mind-boggling lineup of genetics and all of their flower and concentrates are 100% pesticide-free.
You may recognize their logos and artwork by Slow Loris Studio—it’s unmistakeable. Want to learn more? Check you our recent photo tour of their facility, or better yet come meet them in person! 1–3pm at the Guide and 4–6pm at Iron St.
Seattle's Private Reserve
Then, we have Seattle’s Private Reserve coming in to show off their 100% pesticide-free flowers and concentrates. This producer/processor, located in Arlington, WA, brings over 20 years of experience in medical marijuana to their business, and they’re passionate about high quality.
In fact, Seattle Private Reserve’s Chris Hoffman says, “We’re not necessarily for everybody. Our strains are very potent and very effective. We like to say, ‘We’re for smokers by smokers.’” Smokers, this is your chance—come in and meet the magicians behind the magic!1–3pm at Iron St. and 4–6pm at the Guide.
The Upfront Theater
Now, on to the laughs! Did you know we have a world-class improv comedy venue right here in Bellingham? The Upfront was started in 2004 by legendary improv comedian Ryan Stiles (from “Whose Line Is It Anyway”), and hosts hilarious events every weekend. For details, tickets, and directions, check their website or call (360) 733-8855. Here’s a quick lineup:
Against All Odds Improv Comedy:
This is a fully improvised journey of the down-and-out working their way to victory! From the crazy coach, to the nasty rival, to the inspirational training montage, you’ll find all of the great aspects of an underdog story live on stage. There will be sweat, tears, and laughs each night with a new story and hero created. Laugh yourself silly as they overcome impossible odds!

Face-Off Improv Comedy:
Whoever said improv comedy couldn’t be competitive? The Upfront is taking away the warm and fuzzy feelings of collaboration to fight for your laughs in Face Off. Improvisers will enter the proverbial coliseum of comedy to battle against each other with the audience serving as the judge and jury of comedy quality.
Your applause will determine the points the players receive in their quest for glory in this high-stakes/high-energy show! Complete with elimination rounds and competitive improv games, the teams will make you laugh until you cry and drink your tears (okay, half that’s true).
