New Jersey Uke Fest Presented by The Folk Project
Join us for the 2018 New Jersey Uke Fest, the Folk Project's sixth annual ukulele festival! The festival will be held at the Ukrainian American Cultural Center of New Jersey in Whippany, NJ on Friday, Aug. 24, and Saturday, Aug. 25, with an outdoor Jam on the Green in Morristown on Sunday, Aug. 26. We will have everything you've come to expect from a uke fest: concerts, workshops, vendors, an open mic, jams, and more!
New This Year!
As we continue to refine our uke fest, we've made a few changes this year. Paper handout copies will now be included in your ticket price (unless you opt out). Saturday's lunch will also be included in your ticket price (unless you opt out).
Early-bird ticket prices will be avialable (starting June 1) for all types of tickets (full fest, Saturday only, workshops only, Saturday concerts only, and Friday concerts only).
Lunchtime open mic slots will ONLY be available to those who register in advance.
On Friday, Aug. 24 and Saturday, Aug. 25, the New Jersey Uke Fest will be held at the Ukrainian American Cultural Center of New Jersey, 60C North Jefferson Road Whippany, NJ 07981. Get Directions »
