The Cairns Ukulele Festival Community Concert Day held Saturday July 6th at Fogarty Park on the Cairns Esplanade, is a free concert day to enjoy with the whole family.
Once again, a range of community groups from around the country perform during this day. From local schools to Australian ukulele clubs to an islander band and Gold Coast Hula School, there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
In the Tiki Ukulele Tent there will be kids workshops (hula dancing, colouring-in, playing) as well as an all ages workshop by Thom Jackson.
The live entertainment is complemented by market and food stalls and a range of ukulele traders displaying the biggest range of ukuleles you will see in any one place in Australia!
Of course, in the afternoon there is the famous World Record Attempt, ‘largest ukulele ensemble’!
Bring a blanket, find a spot for the day and enjoy!
