HomeGrown Cup

    The HomeGrown Cup celebrates the annual cannabis harvests at the end of the seasons

    Due the unforeseen crisis of the corona pandemic we have decided to cancel the Homegrown Cup Summer Edition. We will try to do our best to check out if we could do a combined indoor and outdoor edition on December 19. Further information and details will follow in September. Stay safe, take care and enjoy your homegrown and we hope to be able to welcome you in December.

    Frequently Asked Questions


    We want to highlight the benefits of growing your own cannabis for personal use, whether it’s recreational, medical, therapeutically, or a combination of all those.


    With the HomeGrown Cup, we lean on an old tradition of celebrating the bi-annual agriculture harvests at the end of the seasons.

    When & Where

    The 7th edition of the HomeGrown Cup will be held on July 4th, 2020, in Tilburg (the Netherlands) from 12:00 until 22.00.


    2015 saw the first edition of the HomeGrown Cup, leaning on an old tradition of celebrating the annual agriculture harvest at the end of the season. The 2016 edition was held on December 17, 2016, in Eindhoven (the Netherlands). The 2017 edition was held on December 2nd, in Tilburg (the Netherlands). The 2018 edition was held on December 15 in Eindhoven (the Netherlands). In 2019 we did two cups in one year for the first time, on June 15th and December 21st. In 2020, we’ll do two cups again, on July 4th and December 19.

    Can I buy tickets to this event?

    There are no public tickets available (or judge packs for sale). However, competitors must pay 75 euros per entry (max 3, in different categories) to enter.

    How much do I need to enter?

    You can find the quantities in the registration form. You cannot send in your entry. After your registration is confirmed, we will communicate how and when you bring your entry (or multiple).

    Can I bring a friend?

    Judging is a hard job and takes all day. You can bring a friend for free if you enter two categories, or bring two friends if you enter three categories. You can bring a friend if you enter one category too, but then it costs 40 euros extra on top of your entry fee. For these 40 euros, you get an additional t-shirt, goodie bag and food and drinks.

    Is this event in Amsterdam?

    No, the HomeGrown Cup is not held in Amsterdam for various reasons. In 2020 the cup takes place again in Tilburg, which has plenty of cheap accommodations available for the weekend. But the event finishes early enough for you to drive home or even take the train back home.

    ‘Het leuke van een evenement als de Homegrown Cup is het contact met de andere deelnemers.’

    Derrick Bergman, Highlife Magazine 2019

    ‘The 2017 HomeGrown Cup was a perfect example of how cannabis goes beyond healing individuals and can heal communities, too.’

    Bill Griffin, Marijuana Times (2017)

    ‘Een evenement waar amateurs, coffeeshops, cannabis social clubs, zadenbanken en growshops het tegen elkaar opnemen in een strijd om de beste wiet (en de beste hasj en concentraten ook tegenwoordig).

    Mediwietsite (2017)

    ‘At a secret location in the Dutch city of Eindhoven last month, around 70 cannabis growers, concentrate producers, and cannaseurs gathered to take part in the second annual Homegrown Cup. Their charge: Judge entries in four different categories: outdoor, indoor, traditional hash, and concentrates. (…)’
