PEACE LOVE & 420!

The Loop 420 Street Fest Saturday April 20, 2024   11am – 7pm

It was so much fun we had to do it again!  The Loop 420 Street Fest is hitting the Historic streets of the Delmar Loop for it’s second year on the actual Holiday, 4/20!

With nearly 30 years in the industry each, for almost 20 of those years, Sunshine Daydream & Emporium Smoke Shop have innovated and developed an adult centered celebration of the counterculture Holiday, 420. In 2023, with the legalization of recreational cannabis, in collaboration with the Loop Special Business District, we took the celebration to the next level by hosting a large one day Festival to celebrate the 420 Holiday. Offering the public a larger opportunity to experience the cultural offerings of the industry, as it has become more widely accepted.

Enjoy a fun filled festival day Celebrating the counterculture that has surrounded the 420 holiday for decades.

OFFICIAL WEBSITE

Deadheads in St. Louis know Jake’s Leg. The band has been providing music for the scene for 47 years, playing thousands of shows to generations of like-minded fans who just wanna keep on dancin’. Maybe you’ve heard them in some dumpy little bar like the old Twenty North or at Busch Stadium: they’ve played ’em all and continue to do so on a regular basis. And the band keeps growing.

Started as a duo by guitarists and vocalists Randy Furrer and Tim Fahy in the mid-1970s, lead guitarist Dave Casper soon joined the fold. Players were added and the music grew, friends came and went. Some of them had 10-year-or-longer stints with Jake’s Leg, which is a long career for most non-touring rock bands. Bassist Joe Trunko came on board in 1990, followed in 1991 by keyboardist Bill Noltkamper, completing the core four that have been playing and singing together for the past 30 years. Ryan Wilhite, after a short stint as percussionist, took over the drum kit in 2005. The sum of this is one of the longest-lasting bands in the country that plays a whole lot of your favorite songs and you’ll find them playing in and around St. Louis.

It’s not The Grateful Dead and it’s not supposed to be. While they draw mainly on the repertoire of America’s favorite psychedelic blues-rock jug band, Jake’s Leg naturally bring their own sensibilities to each part. The introspective singer-songwriter, the jazz stylings of an improvising soloist, rock-solid dance grooves, mind-bending jams: all are in play at their shows. The music can take you anywhere you want to go. And with their long-term unity and very capable musicianship, Jake’s Leg makes it a great-sounding trip.

Laceface

Lacey (LaceFace) Walton was born in Grants Pass, Oregon in the early 80’s. She was exposed to the blossoming art form of glass blowing and pipe making from an early age. Determined from the beginning to create beauty, Lacey fell in love with the color, fluidity, and form of glass the moment she began working on the torch in 2004. Lacey spent the next several years concentrating on her growing skills as a glass artist while simultaneously putting herself through school. After graduating with an associate degree in the Arts, she became heavily involved in the expanding glass pipe art movement. In 2010, Lacey began attending several trade shows and flame off competitions around the country, her dedication has been rewarded by her receiving several of the glass pipe industry’s highest honors and awards of achievements.. Now Lacey creates with many of the industry’s most renowned artists, motivated as a community leader to push the limitations of glass art. Her modern masterpieces of glass art exemplify her power and spirit and also speak volumes for her determination to succeed in the glass art world.
