The Festival’s goal is to promote interest in and enjoyment of the Ukulele in and around the Tennessee Valley and to advance and share "Ukulele Love” and the “Hawaiian Spirit of Aloha.” The program will feature beginner sessions and classes on various aspects of ukulele care and playing. Those not participating in the classes will be able to gather in small groups to share music and expertise. Open-mic sessions will be available and performances will be held on the NSS stage. The festival will also offer opportunities for club performances and group participation in strum-alongs. Other ukulele and Hawaii-related activities and performances may be included as available.
