Schedule of events:

2:30-3:30 - beginners workshop and group jam
3:30-end - open mic session #2 followed by special performances

For beginners, we'll teach you enough chords during the workshop session for you be able to play just about any popular song. No prior experience necessary. You'll then be well-equipped to participate in the "group jam" where we'll all play a song together.

All attendees will have an equal opportunity to sign-up and perform during one of the open mic sessions (if you so desire). These will be 5-10 minute sets. Come early and sign up!

We will be located in Pavilion 1 - located off of the Tollgate Rd entrance.

The 1st Annual UkeFest is brought to you by the Greater Philly and Central NJ Uke Ensemble.
