Harmony Marketing Director Shawn McGurr said Mayor Steven Fulop will be at their “Wild Styles and Strains” party on Saturday, which runs from 7 p.m. to midnight.
Inside the dispensary will be a pop-up art gallery, while there will be music, a beer garden, and food trucks outside. The event description also notes that street artist Ron English will also be performing live body painting.
McGurr said sponsoring the festival is a “great opportunity to be part of the community,“ continuing that they are “on a mission to change the stigma about cannabis,” which helps their efforts.
Marketing Director Shawn McGurr said that in June, the mural arts program contacted Harmony Dispensary CEO Shaya Brodchandel to see if they were interested in helping with the mural festival.
McGurr said it is exciting that Jersey City is creating a mural art district near their dispensary. In August, Harmony was approved by the Planning Board to operate a medical dispensary
