    Default The 9th annual Ukulele World Congress June 2-3rd 2017

    June 2nd- 3rd 2017
    NEEDMORE (Brown County!) INDIANA

    About 10 miles from Nashville Indiana off HWY45 at @ 4600 Plum Creek Rd.

    Free! Compliments of Mainland Ukes

    http://www.youtube.com/user/UkuleleWorldCongress

    Many people show up Friday afternoon, but more and more people are showing up a day or two or three early.
    You're welcome to come a day or two early, but you might end up helping with the mowing and set-up.
    Some people don't leave till Monday or later!
    There will be a potluck again Friday evening about 5 to 7pm. Mainland will have free water and drinks available until they run out.
    There is an open mic each evening as well as a lot of other jammings all day and playing around the bonfire all night.

    Nothing official planned for Sunday, but it's YOUR party so you guys can do what you want! Last year, Sunday had some nice low-key jamming and folks hanging around trying to find any excuse to prolong the experience.
    This year we will be encouraging people to perform in Nashville during the week at local restaurants and the visitors center
    The site for the UWC is a couple of big, well maintained fields with no permanent structures except for the stage. Both the fields are at least partially bordered by woods and a creek. Camping under shade is a good idea. There are a lot of good on-site camping areas, in the back of "parking field" there are some sweet drive up and camp spots that have shade for a lot of the day.
    No dogs allowed.
    No guitars.
    No drums.
    No fireworks.
    There is basically an unlimited amount of parking and camping space. Portable toilets will be on site.
    The stage field will be closed to vehicle traffic on Friday and Saturday.

    HOTELS:
    Nashville is only about 10 minutes away from the UWC site and has a good variety of hotels and Bed and Breakfasts.

    CAMPING:
    Primative camping is free at the UWC site! (No showers sorry)
    The local YMCA in Nashville sells $8 day passes.

    PROVISIONS:
    Nashville is not far and the Needmore store, good for some basics is only about a mile away.

    Nashville has an IGA for food and other supplies.

    There is also a liquor store in Nashville and a CVS.

    If you are flying ,Indianapolis International airport is about an hour or so away.

    I had some health issues myself and missed #8 entirely, but I plan to be back with at least one daughter for #9. See you there Steve.

    Just under the 3 month mark, and this thread is AWFULLY quiet. Isn't it time for us Midwesterners to come out from hibernation?

    About 800 ukulele players have a fantastic time out in the country, some people hang out and jam all day, some go into Nashville to shop or do tourist stuff for a few hours, some people go on a hike, in the evening there is an open mic on stage.
