LEAF Fall Festival

October 19, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - October 22, 2017 @ 7:00 pm

$35 – $215

Come along and ride on a Fantastic Voyage for the 45th LEAF Festival on Oct. 19-22, 2017! Located on the grounds of scenic Lake Eden, LEAF Festival has spent over two decades bringing a diverse and multicultural line-up of musicians, artists, and artisans to the Blue Ridge Mountains with a mission to “Connect Cultures & Create Community” through music & arts. Whether spending your time uniting with friends for a camping adventure, experiencing 6 stages filled with world-class music, exploring 8 family adventure villages, rejuvenating with dozens of healing arts workshops, or perusing 60 artisanal and culinary vendors – LEAF festival offers you the unique opportunity to tailor the weekend to your dreams. Prepare to expand your horizons with a once in a lifetime adventure!

Want to get involved in co-creating that magic that is LEAF? We humbly welcome one and all to come on board and volunteer. It takes the generosity of over 500 volunteers each Festival to cultivate an event that welcomes over 10,000 community members to Lake Eden. Whether setting up early, helping us keep the land green and beautiful, hydrating & feeding the community, assisting with the creative experience, or packing up a weekend of action on the backend – the hearts and hands of volunteers are key to LEAF’s success! Explore how to become a volunteer, gain inside access as an official LEAF member, or simply come along and ride as a ticket holder at!
