Prepare to Ignite your imagination & be Inspired at 44th LEAF Festival!   


Take a look back at the 43rd LEAF program!

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.

The 44th LEAF Festival is approaching…

This Spring, prepare for an experience that will ignite your imagination and inspire your spirit to take hold of your creative dreams and allow them to soar.   Each artist featured over the weekend have been carefully selected for not only being masters of their craft, but for standing firm as way-showers with powerful messages of hope, freedom, and inspiration.  In addition, this Spring LEAF features an NEA Grant funded “Legends of Africa” series, welcoming Artists representing 13 countries from the Mother Continent.
