As Autumn rolls in and the leaves begin to change, Ultimate prepares for its last festival of the year: the fall Lake Eden Arts Festival (LEAF), which happens each October. We also name our October Flavor of the Month and its recipient organization--one of the few recurrent pairs of the year-- Choco-Latte and LEAF Schools & Streets.
LEAF Schools & Streets, or LSS, is an outreach program of the Festival that began serving our community in 2004.
LEAF Schools & Streets inspires students to find and develop their artistic voice while supporting healthy youth development. As an arts education program, LEAF Schools & Streets matches artists with youth in schools and communities for residencies, interactive performances and mentoring that includes empowering performance opportunities for youth (at LEAF Festival, and beyond!)
