The NZ Ukulele Festival is one of the biggest events of its kind in the world. Last year a record crowd gathered to enjoy non-stop entertainment from international and local musicians and to have fun making music together.
This year’s festival is the grand centrepiece of what is shaping up to be a ‘grand slam’ ukulele weekend in the city with related events happening on Friday and Saturday evenings.
What will it cost?
It is FREE! Music is for everyone, but If you are able to make a gold coin donation it helps us to keep it that way. Our hungry buckets will be grateful for anything you can manage. Look out for our lovely volunteers holding them. If you would like to make a bigger donation (awesome!) visit us in the Big White Tent and well give you a receipt. Donations over $5.00 are tax deductible and earn you a festival badge. Our fundraising festival t shirts cost $20 for kids sizes, $25 for adults. You can order through your Kiwileles school or buy on the day.
We some great food vendors on site – but you are most welcome to bring a picnic too. Please note this event is strictly alcohol, glass and smoke free and we ask you to be kind to the grass and take all your rubbish home
