We want to thank everyone for such a fantastic day! Our speakers, sponsors, and family entertainment made this event so welcoming to everyone interested in learning about how  cannabis can help them. 

Where: South Front Street, Steelton, PA

When: August 31, 2019

We are excited to invite you to the Steelton Cannabis Health Expo on August 31, 2019. We will be shutting down a portion of South Front Street to host vendors, food trucks and live art exhibits. Coexist Gallery will have a full day of scheduled expert speakers and knowledgeable panels to address medical marijuana and other alternative health topics. There will be live music and activities to entertain family and friends while their loved ones learn. Best of all, this event is free to the community.

Our mission for this event is to educate, empower and assist interested patients, caregivers, and providers about the Pennsylvania Medical Marijuana Program and other natural ways of healing. We hope to raise awareness for alternative therapies and to destigmatize the use of marijuana as a medicine by providing a welcoming environment for patients and their families to gain information.

South Front Street will be lined with arts & crafts vendors including a live glass blowing exhibit; product and service vendors like massage, reiki, acupuncture, MMJ dispensaries/grows, CBD distributors, Hemp companies and more. 

All proceeds will go to The Coexist Foundation Steelton to fund the start-up and implementation of a Youth Arts Committee project for the Borough of Steelton and other community initiatives. The foundation will be fundraising for other inclusive and engaging activities and accepting donations to help further unite the residents of Steelton.
