Announcing Uke U-6

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


Aloha Friends,

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.

Tickets will be sold on-line via the Uke U 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. Last year tickets sold out in about two weeks, so if you really want to come, we advise that you purchase your ticket early.

Please note the following changes in our refund policy and camping reservations at Tumalo State Park:

Our refund policy will be changing somewhat this year, full details will be posted at a later date. Additionally, Uke U will no longer be involved in the re-sale or transfer of tickets after they are purchased from us; purchasers will be responsible for these transactions on their own.

Beginning this year, Uke U WILL NOT be reserving campsites at Tumalo State Park. If you want to camp at Tumalo you will have to make your own reservations through the Reserve America website. In the past, most folks reserved their campsites starting Thursday, so they are ready when the festival starts bright and early on Friday morning. Reservations through Reserve America are accepted no earlier than 9 months prior to the requested date.

Watch for further Uke U-6 announcements in October. In the meantime, our volunteer staff will not be responding to individual questions or requests to be added to email lists. Please be patient, all the info will be updated as soon as we work out the details.

Until then, thank you all for your interest in the Uke U-6, and Uke On!
