Our new favorite holiday has arrived: It’s 4/20 in West Michigan.

Just about every cannabis company on Earth has some sweet deals going for 4/20, so we’re not going to bother listing all those here. Our advice there is simply to support local as much as you can!

This special cannabis holiday also means tons of parties, though. Concerts, giveaways, art, games, stand-up comedy and more are all joining the festivities, so we’ve rounded up some local highlights here. And even if you’re not interested in local 4/20 events at all, you can scroll to the bottom for some great events coming up this weekend.

Here’s what’s on our radar for the holidaze:

Green Mitten Anniversary

The Pyramid Scheme

A cannabis plant will be playing music live at Purple East and will be jamming along with its grower Tom Wall! The plant, named “Cosmic Splooge”, will be plugged into a computer that reads its bio-electric energy to produce music and it actually jams in proper time and makes tasteful melodies along with human musicians. Of course, the event will also feature tons of deals and free gifts.

Rair Kalamazoo Grand Opening

What better way to celebrate 4/20 than with a brand new dispensary opening? Come on through for complimentary breakfast and refreshments, specials on prerolls/flower/concentrates/vapes, free cannabis delivery and more.

NON-CANNABIS EVENTS

4/23

MICHIGAN METAL & HARDCORE FEST

Skelletones

133 S. Division Ave., Grand Rapids

April 23, 12 p.m.

Skelletones.com

Been wanting to celebrate the return of local music venue Skelletones, but can’t decide on which show to see? Look no further than their upcoming Michigan Metal & Hardcore Fest. This all-day event features 12 midwest-based bands, including Grand Rapids’ own Worst Self and Gorethrone. Plus, 20 percent of ticket proceeds will go toward The Trevor Project, a 24/7 crisis support service for LGBTQ+ young people. That truly rocks!

4/24

SHINEDOWN - THE REVOLUTION’S LIVE TOUR

Van Andel Arena

130 W. Fulton St., Grand Rapids

April 24, 7 p.m.

Vanandelarena.com

Following the recent RIAA gold certification of their 2018 album, “Attention Attention,” the Florida rock band Shinedown will be bringing their high-energy, eye-popping show to downtown Grand Rapids. The same album’s title track reached Top 5 on Billboard 200, and the group’s seventh album debuts the same weekend as their Van Andel performance. Suffice it to say, it has never been a better time to be a Shinedown fan, new or old.

TOOSII

The Intersection

133 Grandville Ave. SW, Grand Rapids

April 24, 7 p.m.

Sectionlive.com

Whether you have heard his hit songs “Love Cycle” and “Truth Be Told” on shuffle, or you purchased “Poetic Pan” as it made #17 on the Billboard 200 during quarantine, there is no denying that rapper Toosii is in the midst of skyrocketing success and recognition. This North Carolinian artist has been featured on tracks with Lil TJay, and his record company also represents the globally known Da Baby. However, Toosii’s performance at The Intersection is a solo act, and one we cannot wait to see.
