LEAF celebrates arts and cultures from around the world. Twice a year, in the shadow of Mt. Mitchell, traditions from around the world are represented through interactive exhibits, activities, food, and especially music. Well-known headliners like Shovels & Rope, India.Arie, Trevor Hall, and Larkin Poe will play alongside artists covering African roots sounds and experimental dance movements. Beyond the tunes, LEAF is designed to be interactive with more than 50 healing arts workshops on a range of topics from yoga and holistic health to permaculture and ancient earth skills. In addition to the festival’s annual fall return (October 17-20) to Camp Rockmont, organizers will also host LEAF Downtown AVL at Asheville’s Pack Square Park on August 2-3.
