#LEAFLove & Gratitude to the incredible community that came out to experience sold out 44th LEAF Festival!
“On behalf of the LEAF Stages Team, we are deeply grateful for the tremendous energy and spirit shared by both our performers & community at the 44th LEAF Festival! From our headliners, to the 13 African Nations present, to the over 400 performers that graced every stage and roamed every square inch of Lake Eden – the power, sincerity, and inspiration offered truly ignited our hearts & souls all weekend long… And that energy was not only matched, but surpassed by the love, passion, and creativity shared by our incredible LEAF community. This past weekend truly felt like a unique opportunity to embark on a true cultural adventure across the world in our own backyard.
At LEAF Festival, our greatest dream is to serve as a pathway toward rediscovering what you love. And our method of accomplishing this is through the beat of the drum, moments by the fire & one power dance move at a time. We can’t wait to reunite with you all this Summer and Fall for another world culture celebration together.” – Ehren Cruz, Performing Arts Director
