The 38th LEAF Festival is delighted to announce that LEAF’s single kids’ village will
starburst across the festival grounds, May 8th-11th, into seven mini-villages within the Land of Lake
Eden. Every village will have food, handcraft and healing arts elements mixed with interactive art
activities for all ages from the young to the young at heart.
“We are answering the call of the parents and making the entire festival more of a family experience.
Everyone can enjoy the activities in each village including the kids and people without kids,” said
Morgan Markowitz, LEAF’s Family Adventure Director.
Classic lake activities like the swimming, the zipline, canoes, kayaks and stand-up paddle-boards will
still be a big part of LEAF Festival. Youth and parents will easily find their way from village to village with a treasure quest map specifically for kids, treating each stop is like its own adventure.
