Announcing Uke U-6

Friday July 14 – Sunday, July 16, 2017
Cascades Academy


Aloha Friends of Uke U,

We are pleased to announce that Uke U-6 will held July 14-16 at beautiful Cascades Academy, just outside of Bend Oregon. Uke U is a three-day festival dedicated to fostering the Spirit of Aloha through friendship, education, and ukulele music, featuring 50 workshops by some of the most accomplished musicians and instructors in the ukulele world, as well as great concerts on Friday and Saturday night, Open Mic sessions, Playalongs, and some of the friendliest folks you could ask to spend a weekend with.

The planning for Uke U-6 is well underway and here is an update:

A great line-up of performers is in the works and will include new and returning folks. Lil’ Rev, Neal Chin, Danielle Ate the Sandwich, Andy Andrews, Jim D’Ville, The Quiet American (Aaron & Nicole Keim), and Cinda Johnson are just a few of the musicians who will be at Uke U-6. Check back soon for further updates!

Tickets will be sold on-line via this website starting on January 24, 2017 at 9 a.m. Due to rising costs, adult 3 day all-inclusive tickets will be $125, youth tickets will still be $40, including our special “Ukes for Youth” session.

Beginning this year, when you order tickets online, you will receive 3 email notifications as follows:

    1. order has been received and is being being processed
    2. order has been completed (can take up to a day to receive)
    3. festival tickets

The change is the additional email (#3), and you will need to present the festival tickets email at the time of registration at Uke U. If you lose your ticket(s), please contact us BEFORE June 1st so we can re-issue and send tickets. After June 15th, we will have limited time to re-issue and send tickets.

If you really want to come, we advise that you purchase your ticket early as there will be NO waitlist once tickets are sold out. We recommend you post on the Ukulele University Facebook page that you are interested in purchasing a ticket. Include your email and phone number so folks can contact you if they have tickets to sell.

Due to reservation changes through the Oregon State Parks system, Uke U WILL NOT be reserving campsites for individuals at Tumalo State Park. If you want to camp at Tumalo you will have to make your own reservations through the Reserve America website. Reservations through Reserve America are accepted no earlier than 9 months prior to the requested date.

Tickets will be refundable until June 1st, 2017 less a 30% processing and service fee.
Example: $125 ticket – $37.50 = $87.50 refund

After, June 1st, there will be no refunds.

Uke U will no longer be involved in the re-sale or transfer of tickets after they are purchased; you will be responsible for interacting with anyone who is interested in buying or selling your ticket(s). In the past folks have had success in posting on the Ukulele University Facebook page for both purchasing and selling tickets (include your email and phone number). Please do not contact us with the names of individuals who purchased your ticket(s) as we will not be keeping a record of re-sales and transfers.

If you sell your ticket, it will be your responsibility to forward the festival tickets email to the purchaser who will then need to sign in at Uke U under your name. If you sell only 1 of your tickets and will be using the remaining ticket(s), you will need to sign in at Uke U for all your tickets and make arrangements to meet up with the purchaser so you can give them their wrist band.

We thank you for your commitment and support of Ukulele University ~ Uke On!
