Do we know if the Wine Country Uke Fest 2011 is going to happen? Sept 11-12 would be a Sunday-Monday, and there is no web info on a St Helena event yet.

There is a new San Diego Uke Fest too, July 14-16th 2011

This thread should have a sticky.

I found this little snippet on the the website . . .

We are also in the throes of planning the 2011 Wine Country ‘Ukulele Festival, which will take place sometime in the fall.
other than that, nothing else.

Thanks for the list, Mike. It looks like a great resource.

Please add the Ukulele Festival of Northern California (http://www.ukulelefestivalnorcal.org/) to the list. The Festival, which was on hiatus for 2010 while it sought a new location, was held on April 3, 2011, at the Chabot College Performing Arts Center in Hayward. The 2012 Festival has already been scheduled for Sunday April 1 at the same location. The 2011 Festival included a Kamaka Hawaii vendor booth and a performance by Chris Kamaka's band.

In addition to the Ukulele Festival Hawaii in Waikiki in July, Ukulele Festival Hawaii also produces:

The Waikoloa Ukulele Festival (http://www.ukulelefestivalhawaii.org/en/waikoloa.htm)on the Big Island in March (this year's was on March 5, 2011)
The Maui Ukulele Festival (http://www.ukulelefestivalhawaii.org/en/maui.htm)in October (this year on Sunday, October 11, 2011), and
The Kauai Ukulele Festival (http://www.ukulelefestivalhawaii.org/en/kauai.htm)(date TBA)
