Autumn Ukulele Festival

Join us for the Autumn Ukulele Festival (Yuukalieli Festawel) here on Norfolk Island in April 2018. There are only 60 Uke player spots available so be sure to reserve your place early.

Autumn Ukulele Festival

15 April 2018 - 20 April 2018

In the vast South Pacific Ocean, Norfolk Island is identified by its natural beauty, majestic Norfolk Pines along with unique Polynesian blend of culture, language, music and history.

Uke players and musicians of all levels of ability are invited to attend and join with the Norfolk musicians. The “cultural mix" of Aussies, Kiwis and Maori singers will be given an added dimension of the Bounty Pitcairn descendants with their unique culture, Norfolk language songs and Island Dancers.

During the Festival players will enjoy playing at scenic locations, a boat special on the Lagoon, historical area of the Penal settlements and on Norfolk’s only roundabout. Besides interesting workshops and Island rhythms, invitations will be given to perform at the Hospital, White Oaks, School, Churches and the local markets.

Not to mention Welcome & Farewell Dinners, a famous “Norfolk fish-fry”, Island Breakfast at Beautiful Anson Bay, a “lunch & jam”, sing-a-longs; each country will also be invited to show their talents at the Ukulele Showcase night. We hope you will enjoy our Norfolk hospitality and trust this will be a memorable and rewarding, fun filled Norfolk Island Ukulele Festival.
