LEAF is #1 Festival for KIDS:...and it just got even better!
Kids' Village Is STARBURSTING across LEAF for 7 mini-interactive villages & One Big FAMILY ADVENTURE. LEAFlet Kids Village was SO AMAZING yet a bit isolated, and parents would get trapped there. Many parents requested beer in kids village or a main stage....we couldn't do that so we starbursted EVERY aspect of the beloved Kids Village throughout LEAF.The map is in design - look for orange labels for FAMILY ADVENTURES. Read Ashvegas story.
It has become LEAF tradition to bring our international friends to the US. We are thrilled to have 12 students coming from Port-Au-Prince, Haiti to participate as Performing Artists in LEAF’s 38th music festival and participate in cultural exchanges with local youth. These students are extraordinary and dedicated to learning traditional Haitian drumming and dance. They are coming with their LEAF Teaching Artists (Drummer Bois Gris and Dancer Johanne), and Grammy-nominated Boukman Eksperyans, Haiti's most well-known group who has led traditional Haitian music for 36 years. "The traditional Haitian music is powerful, and important. The music feels holy, something that we own ourselves. And you just HAVE to dance when you hear the rhythms!" exclaim the students...a taste of what you can look forward to at May LEAF!!
