Lake Eden Arts Festival (LEAF) "Reach for the Stars": Black Mountain, NC @ Lake Eden

LEAF Festival is an inter-generational celebration of world culture that uses music, arts, and creativity to champion artistic expression, instill cultural competency, and build a diverse & welcoming community.

“Of all the forces in our universe, few things captivate more inspiration, awe and wonder… than the stars. No matter where we stand upon this beautiful Earth, up above is a celestial blanket beckoning our vision to higher possibilities. For the 49th LEAF Festival, the artists selected transcend expectation, defy all convention, and capture the essence of what it means to embrace one’s fullest potential. From the shores of Benin, to the mountains of Colorado, to the forests of Ireland, to the city streets of LA… this Fall, over 15 nations will unite at Lake Eden to share a vision of who we are when we release all expectations, dive deep into our creative passions, and #ReachfortheStars. Join us this October for a Global Gathering filled with music, magic and infinite possibility… And prepare for the journey of a lifetime!” ~ Ehren Cruz, Artistic Director
