Twice a year we invite ONE AND ALL to explore a magical world music festival where the very best of music, art, and culture join together to strengthen community through the power of creativity. LEAF festival takes place on the site of the old Historic Black Mountain College with a stunning mix of rolling hills, lakes, streams, and mountain beauty on hundreds of acres of comfortable camping grounds.
LEAF scowers the globe for artists, musicians, performers, entertainers, presenters, and teachers that not only are the great in their craft, but who also care deeply for education through arts. Many of our musicians and artists not only offer multiple shows at our festival, but remain within our community for up to a week before the event to teach in school residencies, perform in local showcases, and share their gifts with children of all ages to help engender a culture of service through the arts.
LEAF Community Arts is a non-profit organization in which all donations and festival profit goes towards music and arts education programming locally and globally! Since 2004 we have served over 41,000 youth with programs in over 15 community locations and in 10 countries worldwide. Your attendance at LEAF not only provides you with an amazing weekend experience for your friends and family, but supports those without opportunity to live their dreams through music and arts.
