420 Shakedown Street Fest was a bust. The police were called, and they shut us down. They didn't know what to say when I asked why they haven't shut us down before 2023.

We protested during the Pandemic. We have had events every year since 2015. The answer is it was a new police chief in 2023. He wasn't familiar with us. Not my fault that our local politicians and leadership don't pay attention to the people in their community. 

We did get a great article written by the local newspaper. At the end of the day that was my main purpose. I don't think we could have written a better article than the one we got.

Vendor Information:
We are taking over a parking lot in downtown Anderson by the Blue Bridge. Vendor spots are 2 parking spots wide. Some people park in 1 and use 1 or use both. There is enough space to fill the lot and still have parking available.

(See EVENT MAP for layout)

The Parking Lot/Set UP will still have light automobile/pedestrian traffic driving/walking through the event.

DO Not block thru traffic.

Allow everyone around us to continue

with their normal business schedule.

We are the extra added bonus for the day.

Parking is first come first serve.

The FEE for BOOTH Space is $25.00 per Vendor. The fee breakdown is $5.00 will go towards porta pot rental

for us and our guests, and $20.00 is for

Operation Restoration Project.

The OperationRestoration Project Wall is located at the Howard County Vietnam Veterans Grounds -

Kokomo Indiana.

It is a wall that is in loving memory of

the Next Gen Veterans.

The idea is to purchase more

resilient and durable material

with less maintenance.

Basically, I'm taking a marketing fee and donating it

to a good cause instead of pocketing it.

For the Honor Wall Project, we will be using UglyBucks a Full-service print business offering apparel, indoor media, outdoor media, and much more! They will help us pick something that people from all over the Nation will hear about.

FB Group Link:
Follow the OperationRestoration Project for more up-to-date information and how to participate in the project. PLUS if you want to attend the unveiling party. We will post everything pertaining to OperationRestoration Project in the group.


All are welcome to participate.

Sidenote Q & A:

BOOTH Space Fee will be collected at the event sign-in table.

Q: Why a FEE if it's a parking lot?
A: Because there is a lot of extra behind-the-scenes stuff that happens. For example, marketing a 420 event that has a 50% chance of bad weather every year. I personally spend 5-10 plus hours a day, planning and organizing the logistics to make sure the event runs smoothly for everyone. It's a small price to pay for all the work that goes into pulling an event like ours off.

Q: Can I see your permission slip?!?
A: We do not ask permission to assemble. We believe in the

Constitutional Right of Assembly and Freedom of Speech.
Our events are to participate at your own risk.

Cannabis is currently illegal in the State of Indiana. The Hoosier Cannabis Advocates from all over the State are still actively seeking reform. Our local group of activists has participated in Cannabis Reform for many years. We look forward to teaming up with everyone.

Thanks in advance,
Nicole (Schuyler) Kapuscinski
