LEAF celebrates 20 years of music, art, culture and community

How do you sum up 20 years of festivals? That’s two decades of twice-yearly campouts, dances, new musical discoveries and fond favorites; of friends made and family bonds strengthened; of campfire hangouts and sunny-day revelry. For LEAF, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this May, it’s expressed in the theme, “Global Gratitude.”
