Each year the Midland Cultural Centre hosts our annual ukulele festival in beautiful downtown Midland. This 3 day festival, the first Uke Fest in Ontario, offers ukulele players of all ages to participate in workshops, jam sessions, concerts and all things ukulele-based.
With a diverse, lively, educational range of workshops presented by a host of skilled, dynamic workshop leaders, catering to every Uke skill level from beginner to advanced, Midland Uke Fest offers a unique, one-of-a-kind experience for every type of ukulele aficionado!
With over 150 participants all playing simultaneously, our mass jam session, Uke Mania is an exhilarating experience and a festival favourite which we believe every Uke lover should experience!
As Uke Fest continues to grow annually, attracting ukulele enthusiasts from all across the province and beyond, we are honoured to be able to host so many like minded, truly wonderful people every May! We can’t wait to welcome back old friends, and greet new ones at Uke Fest 2021!
