UKULELE FESTIVAL CALENDAR

UKULELE FESTIVAL CALENDAR

The famous 'Got A Ukulele Festival Calendar'- one of the biggest listings of global uke events around. These are the gatherings especially for this musical instrument.

**** COVID19 NOTICE***** - this hardly needs saying, but... the state of the world is completely fluid at the moment. Many events are cancelled, but bear in mind 'telling that Got A Ukulele bloke we are cancelled' is not going to be the top of the list for most people. I think it is safe to assume you need to check ALL events yourself to see if they are actually happening happening / gone online. Stay safe people..
If you want to be listed on the site - please hit the 'Contact Me' section above and drop me an email. Thanks. This is the ONLY way to be listed.

(Please note - Got A Ukulele is NOT responsible for the accuracy or content of external festival websites or their events! Some events may not have updated their sites from last year at the time of you viewing them, but I am assured they will be!)

  9. I was moaning to my wife that there's no uke circuit in Australia, so it's not possible to take an extended road trip and do perhaps three uke festivals. Then I found your site and I see that I mustexpand my horizons, open my wallet and travel overseas. On behalf of ukesters everywhere, thanks for your efforts!
