Don’t know how to play or want to learn some new techniques? Many people from beginner to advanced come to UkeFest Virginia to learn at one of the many Workshops given by actual festival performers! Classes run for approximately one hour beginning at 11:15 am, 2:45 pm and 4:30 pm, cost $20 each and feature instruction from many UkeFest performers! This is one of the most popular and unique aspects of UkeFest Virginia and spots in the workshops are sure to fill up fast. 

Back by popular demand, Ukenanny Concerts offer attendees the opportunity to play some songs with the pros. Fans are encouraged to bring their uke and join the fun! Ukenanny Concerts take place on November 8 on the Sam Ash Music Stage at 1:15 p.m. and 4:30 p.m.

In between the concerts and workshops, fans can check out the Community Stage and jam sessions held spontaneously throughout the Cultural Arts Center. Ukuleles will be available for purchase - buy a uke and start playing!
