The New York City Cannabis Parade & Rally (NYCCPR) is an annual event that celebrates and advocates for marijuana legalization. It started in 1973 as a “Smoke-In” by the Yippies and is now part of the Global Marijuana March. The event consists of a parade down Broadway, where speakers address the crowd, and a rally in Union Square Park, where elected officials, industry experts, activists and musicians perform and speak.

Last year’s 2022 event featured speakers such as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, who praised the passage of the Marihuana Regulation and Taxation Act that legalized cannabis in New York on March 31, 2021. The musical line-up includes the Blues Brothers and Redman. The event also had a private after party for sponsors and participants. The event aims to raise awareness of the benefits of cannabis and the need for federal reform.
