The ukulele is truly the people’s instrument, and the popular SF Uke Jam is the Bay Area’s leading force bringing fans of the diminutive 4-string uke together. Whether you play or just enjoy hearing the ukulele strummed by trained fingers, come join the SFUJ community for an afternoon uke-apalooza in the summer sun. The Uke Jam is both a showcase for the region’s foremost ukulele talent and a community strum-and-sing-along (bring your uke!) accompanied by special hula performances. A musical collaboration spanning the Pacific Ocean, popular Honolulu YouTuber Cynthia Lin and the San Francisco Bay Area’s ebullient Ukulenny preside over the party. From jazz and bossa nova to Hawaiian classics and reggae remixes, SF Uke Jam creates an island-inspired cross-cultural sound, turning the ukadacious celebration into an archipelago of aloha.

This year’s event features an array of vendors from 11am-4pm, with music and performances from 12-3pm, featuring Aloha Uke Squad, Dos Pogi Boys, ‘Ahamele and of course, Cynthia and Ukulenny.
