Please check with each event to see if COVID guidelines apply before attending. And if you know of a 2022 Ukulele Festival or event that's not on this list, be sure to let us know so we can help spread the word!

While the ukulele can always be played as a solo instrument, it's always so much fun to make music with others. We're really looking forward to jamming, collaborating, and hanging out in person again with the community we love. Be safe, have fun out there, & keep strummin'

  1. Hi UU,
    Is Aldrine teaching or playing anywhere 1/20- 3-15 in 2023?
    There is an airfare special for the next 12 hours (PST) and I was hoping to go to HI or intersect with Aldrine somewhere. A fantasy for sure, but needing some help!
    Thanks for your help!
