LEAF Festival weekend May 6-9 2010



This spring marks the 30th festival celebration of Lake Eden Arts Festival, or LEAF as it is known. This festival takes place twice a year: once in the spring and once in the fall, and this spring it will be held on May 6th- 9th. LEAF is a great family festival (sorry though, your four- legged member cannot attend; if you get a pet- friendly cabin from Carolina Mornings just leave Fido to relax while you play!), with music, art, poetry, movement, and camping all surrounded by the beauty of Camp Rockmont in Black Mountain, NC. The line-up this spring is stellar, and as always the festival is complete with dancing workshops including salsa, swing, hip hop, Cajun, contra, and African- dance the weekend away! Kids under 9 are free, and for those over 9 there is a youth fee. This is a great place for kids, with all of the musicians being appropriate for everyone, plus there are music acts just for them! Not to mention the other great kid activities and festivities!

Camp Rockmont has beautiful camping sites, or if you'd like you can just make one day out of it with a day pass. Even if you'd like to enjoy the whole weekend of LEAF but aren't a camper, there is a pass for you. And contact Carolina Mornings for a beautiful place to stay- indoors of course- in your own home away from home. We can connect you with a cozy space near Camp Rockmont so that your commute to and fro is a breeze. And, you don't have to put your furry loved one in a kennel!!
If you are looking for a great time to visit the Asheville area, then this is it! Be sure to leave some relaxation time and time to visit the sites of the town either before or after the festival- you will not regret such a fun-filled adventure for the whole family!!
