“Come along and ride on a Fantastic Voyage for the 45th LEAF Festival on Oct. 19-22, 2017! At LEAF, we believe life is about the journey. Every day holds an opportunity to discover something new that has the power to transform & uplift the way we see the world. This Fall LEAF, we invite one and all to embark on a voyage across the globe to experience music that will make your spirit soar. From the shores of Kingston, Jamaica, to the frozen tundra of Iqaluit, Nunavut, to the ancient forests of Estonia, to the streets of East LA and beyond… Prepare to expand your horizons with a once in a lifetime adventure. All walks of life are welcome. All ways of life are celebrated.” ~ Ehren Cruz, Performing Arts Director

For 22 years, each May & October an intergenerational family of 12,000 people join together upon the beautiful Lake Eden grounds to experience the power music, art and culture has to transform lives, strengthen community, and foster unity. LEAF Festival takes place on the site of the old Historic Black Mountain College with a stunning array of rolling hills, lakes, streams, and mountain beauty on hundreds of acres of comfortable camping grounds. LEAF scours the globe for artists, musicians, performers and facilitators that are not only masters of their craft, but who also care deeply for the power of arts education and family engagement.
LEAF Community Arts is a non-profit organization in which all donations and festival proceeds supports cultural arts education programming locally and globally! Since 2004, LEAF Schools & Streets has served over 55,000 youth with programs in over 20 Western North Carolina locations. LEAF International features cultural preservation programs in 10 countries worldwide. Your attendance at LEAF not only provides you with an amazing weekend experience with friends and family, but provides a platform for fostering the growth of our youth into creative leaders in their communities worldwide.
