What's better than having an annual weekend-long family-friendly festival of eclectic music, dancing, storytelling, poetry, visual and performance arts, jam sessions, kids activities and camping? How about having it twice each year? The fall installation of Lake Eden Arts Festival takes place Thursday-Sunday, Oct. 20-23. The lineup includes Sweet Honey In the Rock, Galactic, Leo Kottke, Wanda Jackson and many others. Local performers Toubab Krewe, Sirus.B, Woody Pines, Asheville Hoops Troupe and others also take the stage. Tickets are sold in advance only, through Wednesday, Oct. 19. A three day/two night pass is $151 for adults and $124 for kids aged 10-17. A weekend-plus pass (includes Thursday night camping) is $174/$144. Day passes are $42/$34 for Friday and Sunday; $52/$45 for Saturday. A community pass (Friday-Sunday) is $99/$84. http://www.theleaf.com.
