Come one, come all to the 10th annual Placer Ukulele Festival in Roseville, CA (formerly the Auburn Gold Pan Festival). Ukulele instruction for beginning and intermediate players. Fun for all! Join us at the The Strum Shop & Roseville Eagles Club and let’s fill classic Vernon Street with Ohana and big-time music vibes.

This year’s teaching lineup: Leader of the group strums will be the legendary Leonard Kaufer (UkeJams). Find your harmonic Hawaiian groove with Keoki Gordon’s magnificent meles and island strums. Get your strum on with bluegrass ukulele maestro Dr. Dennis Fisher. Renowned multi-instrumentalist and uke teacher Steve Kritzer helps you with strum patterns and “how to add frosting” to your uke playing. Master teacher John Sandoval (CaliUkulele) brings it home with his unique chord/melody classes.

Check out the Friday Night Concert at The Strum Shop featuring ukulele virtuoso Dominic Pieranunzio along with guitarist Buford Robey and bassist Shirley Robey for an evening of uketastic music. Dom & Friends perform a variety of styles including pop, jazz, Hawaiian, classic rock and more. Stick around Saturday night after the festival for an after party uke jam, open mic, and more ukulele fun! Join us on Sunday in the town square for a morning of extra fun!

Raffles and door prizes will add to the gaiety and excitement. Proceeds from the festival will support Ukes for Schools, a Roseville-based non-profit organization that provides instruments and instruction to local school music programs.

Lunch options will be available with ticket purchase OR catch a bite at any of the local eateries on Vernon Street.
