We’re starting to plan the 2018 Festival. Look out for a “Save the Date” posting
Thank you to all of you who attended and participated in the 2017 Nanaimo Ukulele Festival making it a great success. It was with your support that this festival lived up to it’s tag of a “great little ukulele festival.” James Hill and Anne Janelle put on an awesome concert and many people commented on how much they enjoyed the workshops. Everyone enjoyed the Sunday afternoon concert with the Revolving Doors band and the sing and strum, lead by the band, was the best ever. We all had a great time.

July 15th and 16th, 2017
After the success of the 2015 Nanaimo Ukulele Festival, we are back in 2017 with great ukulele music and a lot of fun.
Saturday is jammed packed with learning as James Hill leads two intermediate workshops and Nanaimo’s own Rob Wilkinson leads two beginner workshops.
Saturday, the world renowned, James Hill and Anne Janelle will be performing in their usual engaging and entertaining way at the evening concert.
The fun doesn’t stop there.
Sunday afternoon a ukulele jamboree will be the happening place to be. We have the music of Parksville’s own Revolving Doors to kick off the jamboree. Bring your ukes and sing your heart out with all the other ukulele players for the sing along and play your best tune at the open mic.
Location: Nanaimo Neighbourhood Church, 4951 Rutherford Rd, Nanaimo, BC.http://Nanaimo Neighbourhood Church
Please Note: The Lyricism and Line and the Swing Ukulele Swing workshops spaces are SOLD OUT. The package for the two James Hill workshops are no longer available.
