Sunday afternoon kicks off with a performance from Parksville’s own Revolving Doors band, followed by a Jammin’ Jamboree. Imagine 200 ukesters playing along together. What fun! And all of Sunday’s festivities are by donation so if you feel like providing a little monetary support to the festival you can but there is no pressure.
It’s all taking place at Nanaimo Neighbourhood Church, 4951Rutherford Road, Nanaimo, BC.
No worries about the weather this year.
We are working to get the nanaimoukulelefestiva.ca website up so you can stay up to date with news and information. We expect to launch by the end of April. You will be able to buy your workshop and concert tickets on line or at locations in Nanaimo and Parksville.
Stay tuned and mark those dates in your calendar. It’s going to be “a great little festival”.
