Turn up on August 18, 2024 for Uke Day! Join Illinois Ukulele Society/Wild Blue Ukulele Orchestra for their second year celebrating
everything ukulele!

The event will be held at Hopkins Park in DeKalb, in both the community room downstairs and the Terrace room. Doors open at noon until 5 p.m., in the lower-level community room at Hopkins Park.

Admission is $5, and the first 40 people get a free lei. Admission includes three uke workshops, a concert with the Wild Blue Ukulele Orchestra, and a fantastic strum and sing. Maybe you need a new ukulele or want to take lessons? There will be local music shop vendors, including Ax-in Hand, Ukulele Station of America, and Aurora Music Company. Wild Carrot food truck will be at the event, and Wild Blue Ukulele Orchestra is bringing back swap and sell, awesome raffle items (ukuleles!), crafts and much more.

Uke Day is sponsored by the Illinois Ukulele Society and Wild Blue Ukulele Orchestra. The ukulele is a popular instrument, with more than 1,700,000 ukuleles sold annually in the United States of America. Many people in our area own a ukulele, come and play, listen, learn, shop, and have a great time! The event is open to all.
