Esquimalt Recreation is now hosting our region’s annual Ukulele Festival (formerly Larsen Music Ukulele Week). This year’s 8th annual festival promises to be the best event to date! Purchase a festival pass to access all festival activities, $60 per person (only 50 passes available) through Esquimalt Recreation at 250-412-8500 or online.  In addition to festival passes, tickets to the Strum Along & the Gala Concert can be purchased separately, so there will be plenty of strumming for everyone!

We encourage everyone to join us for the FREE Ukulele Love-In in Memorial Park, the festival’s closing concert, on Sunday, May 27.
