Ashokan Uke Fest Events
A family friendly weekend retreat for ukulele players of all skill levels! The mission of Ashokan Music and Dance is to support and promote preservation and innovation in traditional music and dance. Our goal is to help keep these traditions vital and accessible in a changing world by providing an environment that fosters the free exchange of ideas among passionate musicians and dancers of all ages. We produce music and dance-focused weekend and week-long educational camps, performance-oriented festivals and concerts, and social and traditional dances to live music.
Las Cruces UkeFest Events
The Las Cruces UkeFest is hosted by the Las Cruces Ukes, a non-profit community group of ukulele enthusiasts in southern New Mexico. The club formed in 2013 and has since given over 70 performances around the community, offered several quality workshops with instructors like Mark Baker and Jim D’Ville, and added both a kids and teen club. In 2017, they held their first full-scale festival to rave reviews and a sold-out venue! For 2018, they’ve arranged for a larger theatre to fit all the ukulele lovers we expect to host.
Denver Uke Festival Events
Swallow Hill Music Association is pleased to present a unique festival for uke lovers. This one-day event will give participants a lot of bang for their buck. There will be morning and afternoon ukulele workshops, jamming and open stages in the café, ukulele builders and vendors, and an evening concert in Daniels Hall.
West Coast Ukulele Retreat Events
Eighty-six hours of ukulele music, instruction, fun, camaraderie, and general ukulele mayhem! Five days and four nights of ukulele bliss at Asilomar on the Beautiful Monterey Peninsula in California. Featuring classes and workshops, jams sessions and jam slams. All ages and abilities are welcome, as are non-ukulele-playing spouses.
A Uke-A-Palooza is a reunion, a revival, an extravaganza to bring together people that have an interest in playing, owning or learning about ukuleles. In reality, it is about people that want to laugh, sing, listen, strum a little, lose their inhibitions and share some time with uke minded people.
All festival submissions will be verified before posting.

All festival listings have been verified at their time of listing. I rely on the festival organizers and site visitors to notify LearningUkulele.com of changes and updates. I check once in a while - but these are free listings.

If your anything like me (Curt) and getting Subscription overloaded with everything on-line wanting money from you once a month — I'm with you. For like-minded individuals, this forever plan is a pay once and your done.
The price for Unlimited Forever access is right around the cost of a few months of private lessons. I can guarantee that is more material on-line to keep you busy for a long, long time. And, you get all of my books for FREE. That alone is more than the cost of this plan.
Basic Access - A limited selection of basic lessons — ( currently over 140 ) and 100+ songs for ukulele as well as basic general music reference material — Completely FREE — Simply Register/Signup. HOWEVER - I've been doing ukulele and LearningUkulele.com since 2003 and probably have given too much away already - as reflected in my income from the site in relationship to the time spent on the site. So help support this site and its continued development by signing up for one of the below Premium Access Plans or buy a few of my books. - Thanks, Curt
NOTE: Each higher access level includes ALL the benefits of the lower levels. Private Lessons include all the benefits of a Premium Access Plans as long as you remain a student on the schedule.
Just browsing over both books, they look fantastic! I'm a guitarist and uke player for over 25 years and was thinking about writing a ukulele book but you've already written what I think are the best, most comprehensive and thorough books I've ever seen for the instrument. I just might end up buying every book you've written and I'll be giving my highest recommendation for your books to my friends and students. Thank you so much for taking the time to write such great books! — Peter Rhee
Aloha, Curt, All I can say is WOW! What you have accomplished is simply incredible! All the best — Glen Hirabayashi, The Aloha Boys
