17th Annual Great Waikoloa ‘Ukulele Festival

Queens' MarketPlace

We start off this festival with a very educational and fun workshop put on by world-renowned Roy Sakuma and friends at the Waikoloa Beach Marriott Resort & Spa.

Beginners and long time players of this instrument can learn Roy’s style of ukulele playing. Many that have come in the past learned a song or two to which is typically performed at either of the Waikoloa Beach Resort Shopping centers.

Hawai`i’s top `ukulele entertainers headline this annual musical extravaganza at Queens’ MarketPlace and Kings’ Shops. Whether you are a resident or a visitor, the rhythmic sound of the `ukulele will bring you back to a time of the beauty and magic of Old Hawai`i. The music will make you dance and be part of this once a year event that showcases the sound that is known worldwide.
