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.
