LEAF, one of the top small festivals internationally, is apart from other festivals by the resplendent beauty of its location (formerly the historic Black Mountain College), dedication to community outreach, and bringing together family and friends from all generations. The festival introduces participants to culturally relevant, entertaining acts from around the world that connect you to the artists’ specific “root” community. LEAF highlights its global music line-up with over 50 cultural genres to discover. The artistic and outdoor offerings of the festival are what truly make it unforgettable. LEAF also connects to its historic creative past with Black Mountain College tours.
