Spring Ukulele Festival

Following the success of the 2017 Spring Ukulele Festival (Yuukalieli Festawel), dates have been set in September 2018 for the next Spring Uke Festival. With only 60 spots available, book early to secure your place!

Spring Ukulele Festival

11 September 2018 - 16 September 2018

Due to popular demand, Norfolk Island is hosting 2 Ukulele Festivals (Yuukalieli Festawels) in 2018.

The Spring Ukulele Festival is set for September and is the second of the 2. Uke players and musicians of all levels of ability are encouraged to join the Norfolk musicians in the "cultural" mix of Aussies, Kiwis & Maori singers and don't forget the added dimension of the "Bounty" Pitcairn descendants with their unique culture, Norfolk language songs and Island Dancers.

Players will get to enjoy playing at many scenic locations on the Island including on Norfolk's only roundabout, the historical area of the Penal settlements and a boat special on the Lagoon. 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.
