    We now have an active web site. This is the only Uke Fest in Illinois this year (that I know of). Please come and join us as we celebrate the ukulele.

    I just learned that Cary, the new owner of Mya Moe will be one of the vendors at the City of Lights Ukulele Festival.

    There will be two main stages, an open mic stage and also 2-3 workshop stages at the Aurora festival.
    In addition to ukulele activities, the David L. Pierce Art and History Center, SciTech Museum, Aurora Regional Fire Museum, and GAR Memorial Hall and Museum will be open for free to the public from noon to 6pm.

    In a few minutes I'll be going to the penultimate planning meeting for the City of Lights Ukulele Festival. Aurora is about 40 miles West of Chicago. Plenty of free parking is available. We're hoping to draw visitors from Chicago, Milwaukee and Indianapolis.
