Ukulele Festivals around the USA

These festivals are annual, semi-annual or first time events. Be sure to check their web site for the current dates.

Festival Listings

Note: Be sure to check a festival's web site for latest information and dates, as not all festivals are annual or keep their site's updated until the last minute. The Festival by Month page has the festivals listed that are scheduled for the current year – or at least my attempt to list current festivals.

I totally rely on people associated with the festival for their dates and listing information. I do check the festival site periodically for additional information.

For more recent festival listings I've not included the dates as these are moving targets and too hard to keep up with - be sure to check the festival's web page for the most accurate and current dates.

The festival is our way of introducing people to the culture, spirit and sounds of Hawaiian music. The art of playing the ukulele has a major impact on the Hawaiian culture. A culture that transcends across many musical boundaries outside of Hawaii. As such, we are striving to preserve this art and culture through all ages and in our communities. The ukulele is not just an instrument; it’s a way of life.
