The second annual Noco Hemp Expo is coming
to Loveland on April 4. The event will be
held at The Ranch Events Complex in the
Mckee building. Morris Beegle has been passionate
about hemp for many years now.
He first started out by getting further educated
on the many uses of hemp from the owner of the
Hemporers New Clothes. He learned about the
industrial uses of hemp and eventually started the
Colorado Hemp Company.
Beegle attended the hemp gatherings in Colorado
and realized that there wasn’t really a large
place for people to learn about hemp.
“I wanted to do a hemp event that is more fun
and more entertainment-driven while still being
educational,” Beegle said.
The expo started out small last year at Ricky
B’s, but it has quickly gained notoriety in the hemp
community. Their hope is to continue to grow this
event over the next five years.
“We want to make this the major hemp expo to
kick off the growing season,” Beegle said.
Noco Hemp Expo has a lot to offer for anyone
interested in the hemp business. The expo is very
focused on educating people on everything in the
hemp business, from seed acquisition to growing.
There will be many educational panels with
accomplished speakers like author
Doug Fine who will
be speaking at the
event about the
first legal harvest
in the US and the
advances of using
“If there is
anything you want
to find out about
hemp, you will
probably be able to
find it here,” Beegle
The expo will
feature some of
the many products that can be made out of hemp.
There will be a hemp-bodied car that you can take
selfies in, a Canadian hemp guitar, hemp beer, and
hemp food. There will also be over 50 vendors sharing
their hemp products and knowledge.
The event will be very educational, but there is
also an entertainment aspect as well. There will
be a hemp movie room showing, Bring it Home,
and Hempsters Plant The Seed. Weather permitting,
there will be a band that will play outside of the Mckee
building to entertain guests. There will also be a
busker group walking around adding a little musical
flavor to the end of the day.
“It will be a great time for all.”
