September/October Kolas Events and Happenings You Don’t Want to Miss

Just because summer’s almost over doesn’t mean the fun has to stop!

At least that’s our philosophy over here at Kolas.

We still have a few tricks up our sleeve and we want you to get as excited as we are about these upcoming months!

There’s nothing we love more than providing a fun and memorable experience for our Sacramento community.

That’s why you’ve been seeing us all over the place, getting out, having a blast, and educating the public all about cannabis.

The people who make Sacramento what it is have helped us to build Kolas into what it is. Without your support and positive energy, we wouldn’t be able to be here doing great things for the community!

Here are just a few of the exciting Kolas events and happenings that we’re bringing to Sacramento in September and October 2019.

August 24th – One Drop Redemption, Tribute to Bob Marley & The Wailers at Ace of Spades

Okay, so we’re cheating just a little because this one happened at the end of August… But we’re still so excited about it and we can’t stop talking about it!

We all know that cannabis lovers and Bob Marley fans have a lot in common.

So when we heard we could represent Kolas at the show, we were stoked to add this concert on the list of epic Kolas events for September!

One Drop Redemption is the most amazing Bob Marley & The Wailers tribute show led by none other than the Jamaican-born singer/songwriter Ras Jahmark Tafari.

This show took us back in time to the 70’s as we ‘swayed to de riddum of de One Drop’!

We love making appearances at events like this that are all about spreading positive vibrations. That’s what we’re all about, so when we get to hang out with fellow Sacramento people who are into the same thing, there’s nothing we love more!

September 2nd – Motown Monday @ LowBrau

If you’re not a weekend warrior and instead wanted to live it up at one of the Kolas events on a Monday night, you were in the right place!

If you wanted to immerse yourself into the Motown scene, you were in the right place!

If you were trying to have a blast in Midtown Sacramento on September 2nd, you were totally in the right place!

To celebrate 5 years of Motown Mondays, This916, Motown On Mondays, and LowBrau all teamed up to give us the party of a lifetime!

We partied with DJ Z-Trip and Shortkut along with Motown On Mondays’ founder and DJ Gordo Cabeza with MOM DJs, DJ Epik, and DJ Billy Lane for an epic Motown moment!

September 14th – THIS Midtown’s LAST Second Saturday Block Party Event @ 20th and K St.

If you missed the last few, or even if you’ve been to them all, this last block party will be THE BEST ONE YET! So don’t miss it!!

With live performances from Anna Lunoe, DJ, vocalist, songwriter, producer, and general badass, you already know you’re going to have a good time!

But wait, there’s more!

Check out local vendors from Sacramento’s latest and greatest makers. Grab a drink with your friends and enjoy the live music. And of course, don’t forget to grab your new free swag at the Kolas booth!

This FREE block party at the intersection of 20th and K Street in Sacramento is open to all ages, but you must be 21+ to drink in the designated areas. Come and enjoy anytime between 4:30pm – 11:00pm.

If you’ve been to any of these events, you know that we’ll be there. We’ve been at every single event this year, handing out free swag and educating the public on the medicinal and recreational benefits of cannabis. And this month is no different!

We’ll be hanging out, dancing, and having a blast in our big purple Kolas tent! Come by and say hi before you head over to the dance floor!

September 27th & 28h – Farm to Fork Festival @ Capitol Mall

Known as the Farm-to-Fork capital, Sacramento has some of the freshest food and drink of the state, and even the country.

That’s why this food and music festival is going to be so much fun! The Farm to Fork Festival celebrates all things delicious about Sacramento.

The two-day event and concert series will host more than a mile of local food, regional wines, craft beer, cooking demonstrations, and much more. Enjoy live music from Samantha Fish, Barns Courtney, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, and many more exciting artists!

And of course, we’ll be there!

Stop by the Kolas booth for a quick sample of healing CBD salves, lotions, and oils. We’re always happy to educate the public on the healing benefits of CBD and are so excited to make our appearance at a festival that nurtures so much of what makes Sacramento such an amazing place to live.

Also, don’t miss out on our exclusive raffle that you’ll be able to enter by visiting our tent at the festival!

October 20th – Sausage Fest @ LowBrau

We at Kolas, LowBrau, and the rest of Lavender Heights believe that a sausage fest doesn’t necessarily need the negative connotation it usually suggests. We’re reclaiming it with an incredible party that’ll make every one of its attendees LOVE sausage fests once and for all!

In the spirit of Oktoberfest, Kolas and LowBrau have partnered up to put together the Sausage Fest 2019!

The 2017 Sausage Fest held beer gardens serving specialty cocktails and brews, a hot dog eating contest, and sizzling grills covered in aromatic and tasty – you guessed it – sausages. Eleven of Sacramento’s top local chefs brought their A-game and competed for the best of the “wurst”.

And while we can’t yet disclose the exciting details of this year’s event, we CAN tell you it’ll be EVEN BETTER than 2017’s event!

Stay updated on the Kolas email newsletter and social media for more tidbits of info about this sizzling event!

October 11th – October 13th – Aftershock Music Festival

Are you ready to rock-n-roll-up-your-joints?

We sure are!

If you’re into bands like Slipknot, Blink-182, Rob Zombie, Tool, and Korn, you won’t want to miss this awesome 3-day festival.

We’ll be at the Aftershock Festival for the second year in a row at our Kolas booth for one of the biggest and most popular Kolas events of the year!

We had such a blast last year that we decided we’d be back and sponsor the event for a second time.

This year will have an epic line-up, delicious food, and luxurious VIP options for the honorary rockstars in all of us.

So get your tickets today and find our big purple Kolas booth at the festival! We’ll be handing out our awesome swag, as usual, and may have some other goodies available.

See Kolas at the historic Esquire IMAX Theatre!

We’re making history in a movie theatre, folks.

No known cannabis business has ever advertised in a movie theatre in the entire country. Until now.

We’ve been working on an epic before-movie advertisement for all of you cannabis-loving movie buffs. Keep an eye out for Kolas next time you’re ready to hit the theatre.

And not just any theatre! The historic Esquire IMAX in Downtown, Sacramento!

With heart-pounding audio, awe-inspiring images, and a completely immersive experience, this IMAX experience is so much more than just a movie theatre.

Cannabis Cares: Help the Homeless!

We may be out and about and partying hard at our Kolas events, but we’re also hard at work making our community even better.

We want to show the world that our mutual love for cannabis can make a difference in the community.

So Kolas has partnered up with the Sacramento Cannabis Industry Association (SCIA) and their Cannabis Cares program.

That means that if you purchase certain products in the Kolas dispensary, and other stores powered by Kolas, a portion of the proceeds will go to the Downtown Streets Team.

The Downtown Streets team is working toward change that results in long-term stability for Sacramento’s homeless community. This includes providing homeless and low-income men and women with the resources they need to rebuild their lives.

Look for products in our dispensary (and in dispensaries powered by Kolas) that have the Cannabis Cares sticker to stand with us and join us on our pursuit to make Sacramento a better place for ALL.

Please feel free to talk to a budtender or staff member if you have any more questions about how you can get involved, or where to find more cannabis products that are participating in the Cannabis Cares program.

Behind the Scenes: Internal Company Parties are Poppin’!

And in case you were wondering, the Kolas staff and corporate team know how to get down!

During Labor Day Weekend, Kolas staff members attended a company party where none other than our very own Audio D (aka, the Kolas Marketing Director) DJed all night long!

Want more behind-the-scenes news about Kolas? Follow our marketing department, The Seed Group, on IG to find out more about our company culture!

The cannabis industry brings together some awesome, quirky, innovative, and weird-in-the-best-of-ways people, so when we all get together, it’s always a good time.

Work hard, play hard, am I right?


We wanted our social media to reflect the love we feel for the cannabis industry, so we’ve changed our IG handle from @shopkolas to @lovekolas.  We’re starting fresh with a completely new account, so follow us today!

We love our Sacramento community and family. Without your support, Kolas wouldn’t be able to put on all of these exciting events and participate in all of these community experiences.

And that’s what this is all about for us. Serving the community and making Sacramento a better place for all.

So, like all of us in the cannabis industry, we encourage you to step out of the shadows and into the sunshine! Be loud and proud and be yourself! Enjoy community Kolas events and don’t be afraid to speak your mind!

We’ve fought hard to bring cannabis into a safe, legal, and accepted place in society. And now that we’ve achieved that, it’s time to celebrate!

Do you support the Kolas cannabis movement? If so, let us know how cannabis has positively affected YOUR life in the comments section below!
