2014-2015 California & Nevada Ukulele Festivals & Retreats
Thank You Lake Tahoe! Photos coming soon. Wanna attend our next Mountain Retreat? You don’t have to wait long!
It’s the CUA Halloween Mountain Retreat!
Oct. 30 – Nov. 2
The semi-annual mountain retreat of the California Ukulele Academy is becoming one of the most popular retreats in the west and this year, as in 2013, the fall retreat takes place on Halloween weekend! That gives those of us who haven’t completely grown all the way up to dress up and have a Spook-u-lele Party!
All inclusive pricing includes lodging, outstanding meal, workshops, and evening festivities. Optional hikes take place in the mornings.
This session’s instructor/performers are Sarah Maisel & Craig Chee! Spend relaxed, full days with these exquisite ukulele artists in the fresh mountain air of Alpine Meadows! (So. Cal., not the Tahoe Ski Area!)
Featuring Aaron Keim, The Quiet American, performing and teaching! There’s not a better fit in all of ukedom than Aaron and the Old West!
Strum or sing along with us aboard our 1916 passenger car pulled by the vintage steam engine of the V&T Railway as we navigate the original 1860’s-1950’s route from Carson City to Virginia City and back! We’ll provide a booklet of train and western songs to play or sing!
Most ukulele festivals are in the summer, (give or take). Who says you can’t uke in the winter, too? We’re launching a Reno-style festival this coming February in Hollywood’s winter playground, Palm Springs! The site of the fest, the Hilton Palm Springs, is reserving a small block of rooms that are available now!
The Reno Ukulele Festival is our flagship, now in it’s seventh incarnation! I’m already assembling a brand new, unique, death defying high wire trapeze act of a fest! Stay tuned for details!
