Hawai'i Island Ukulele Retreat Events
With 120 acres set within a pristine, tropical, ohia forest and bordered by a dramatic coastline and stunning cliffs, Kalani Honua, on the southeast corner of Hawaiâ€™i Island (where the lava meets the sea) is probably one of the most beautiful places on Earth to celebrate the â€˜ukulele and all that Hawaiâ€™i has to offer. Besides offering us a warm and enthusiastic welcome (as well as meal options for vegetarians and vegans), a variety of lodging choices to fit a wide range of whims and budgets, Kalani also offers a full schedule of classes and workshops in yoga, meditation, dance, and Hawaiian crafts to augment our â€˜ukulele workshops, events, and field trips.
New Zealand Ukulele Festival Events
The New Zealand Ukulele Festival is a unique occasion. It melds together diverse musical styles, international artists, great local talent, emerging bands, school children and community groups with food, music stalls and instrument sales in a day of FREE family fun. The NZ Ukulele Trust aims to ensure that New Zealand children, no matter their circumstances, get to experience the many benefits of being engaged with music.
La Semana de Uke-Culinary Fiesta Events
Seven days in beautiful Ajijic, on the shores of Lake Chapala. We'll be ukeing and cooking and exploring the area with 2 esteemed ukulele practitioners (and fabulous cooks of southwestern cuisine), Daniel Ward and Heidi Swedberg, suplemented by several local chefs! And talk about fun! In addition to ukulele and cooking workshops, we'll be exploring the area and helping to establish and/or support an ukulele program for the local children. We have a very limited number of spaces available. So let us know if your are serious about attending. We're still finalizing all the details, but all will be revealed here, as it unfolds!
All festival submissions will be verified before posting.
Be sure to check your listing for most current information, dates, etc...
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
