2019 NJ Uke Fest

Aloha! We're hopping excitedly to spread the word about the return of the New Jersey Uke Fest on August 23-24, 2019. To share the eggs-citement as we finalize the last details, we will be offering 20 Full Fest tickets at an extra-special rate of $102 in our (April) Fools for Ukes Sale. Full Fest tickets include two evening concerts (Fri/Sat), a full day of workshops (Sat) with electronic and paper handouts for all workshops, and lunch (Sat). The sale starts at noon, Monday, April 1, and ends at noon, Tuesday, April 2. Once the 20 tickets are gone the sales event is over.

We will be gathering once again at the Ukrainian American Cultural Center of New Jersey in Whippany on Friday, August 23 and Saturday, August 24 and jamming on the Morristown Green on Sunday, August 25.

If you're not able to get in on Fools for Ukes tickets, never fear! Early Bird Tickets go on sale June 1 for $112.
