Los Angeles International Ukulele Festival Producer: Mitch Chang, Kala Koa Entertainment
My vision for the Los Angeles International Ukulele Festival is to make it as easy as possible for families and ukulele fans of all ages & interest and ability levels to discover/rediscover the ukulele where they will be supported and encouraged; I wanted the festival to be a true community-based event. Born & raised in Hawaii, a graduate of the University of Hawaii music department, the ukulele was my very first instrument.
New in 2022: Only $20 all day for total beginners of all ages, kids activities and a children's ukulele puppet show! Loaner ukes available courtesy Ohana Ukuleles
