5th Annual Ukulele University

July 15 – 17, 2016
Bend, Oregon

“Dedicated to fostering the Spirit of Aloha
through ukulele music, friendship, and education.”

It’s official: UKE U-5 IS SOLD OUT!

We are pleased to announce the FIFTH annual Ukulele University, celebrating the Spirit of Aloha through friendship and ukulele music. Whether you are returning for your fifth Uke U, or are here for the first time, thank you for your support. We are very proud of our growing ohana of friends, musicians, ukers and non-ukers of all ages and abilities.

Mahalo Nui Loa to our hosts, Cascades Academy, for making their campus available to us again this year, and to the musicians who have chosen to spend the weekend with us. Thanks also to our sponsors and vendors for their continued donations and support.

Lastly a special Mahalo to the Uke U Organizing Committee and the Bend Ukulele Group, for their energy, perseverance, and commitment to Ukulele University. Without the help of these volunteers and supporters, Uke U would not happen.

If you have questions, check out the FAQ on the website, and if the answer is not there, you can contact us at contact@ukeu.info.

Aloha Nui Loa,
Ukulele University
