The fourth annual event for all ukulele enthusiasts, from beginner to advanced - online again so you can attend from wherever you are!  There is no fee to Register for a full festival pass but please consider making a donation as you are able, to support the festival and homeless families with children. You'll have access to all workshops, workshop materials, performances, Jim Beloff's jam and the open mic. The festival begins on Friday evening with the legendary Jim Beloff sharing stories and tunes from his ukulele life and leading a jam session of tunes from his classic Daily Ukulele songbooks.  Saturday continues with daytime workshops, an open mic and afternoon performances by our talented artists.   Have fun strumming, learning and connecting with a vibrant ukulele community!  Donations benefit homeless families through Family Promise of Greater Rochester (formerly RAIHN).
