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.

from the Funky Frets Ukulele Festival web site
Tentative Date: first or second weekend of October 2015.
Local and national acts, world class workshops, vendors, open mic, jams sessions, vendors and more…. Always more.
Funky Frets is the `ukulele home of Curt & Bernadette Sheller and their daughter Kelly. A true Mom and Pop or as our grandson TJ might say “Mom Mom and Pop-o” music store specializing in All Things Ukulele. So we are nuts enough to put on a two day ukulele festival, shindig, jam and all-around ukulele fun weekend.
