That’s right folks ! We were invited to the festival by our friends from LEAF, and we are happy and excited to further engage our community with the work Leaf does, stay tuned as I’m sure we will be collaborating with Leaf.

We loved this feel good festival where people come to celebrate life surrounded by the beautiful mountains and a lake that enhances the feeling of gratitude for life.

I was also excited to see something very familiar to me, but very rare to see around here, from the sierra de jalisco, original Huichol art and culture.

And a weekend to remember with our friends from Pasa La Voz, and salsa legend  EDDIE PALMIERI.

I want to thank our friends from Leaf for the invitation to the festival and to encourage them to continue their work in creating cultural engagement with our local Latinx community.

At a time when is important to embrace diversity and to foster multiculturalism, Asheville and those living here have the unique opportunity to make our community one that includes and welcomes all.

                                      THANK YOU  LEAF !
