19th Annual Great Waikoloa Ukulele Festival

Queens' MarketPlace

This FREE festival starts with a very educational and fun workshop put on by world-renowned Roy Sakuma and friends at Queens’ MarketPlace. Beginners and longtime players alike can learn Roy’s style of ‘ukulele playing. Many who have come in the past have learned a song or two which are typically performed at either of the Waikoloa Beach Resort Shopping centers. Hawai`i’s top `ukulele entertainers headline this annual musical extravaganza at Queens’ MarketPlace and Kings’ Shops. Whether you are a resident or a visitor, the rhythmic sound of the `ukulele will bring you back to a time of the beauty and magic of Old Hawai`i. The music will make you dance and be part of this once-a-year event that showcases the unique sound that is known worldwide.
