18th 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 Queens’ MarketPlace, Coronation Pavilion starting at 10am.

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, which is typically performed at either of the Waikoloa Beach Resort Shopping centers. Hawaii’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 Hawaii. The music will make you dance and be part of this once a year event that showcases the sound that is known worldwide.
