Hawaii’s Ukulele Festival Is One Of The Best Things You’ll Do All Summer
When one thinks of Hawaiian music, they likely start hearing ukulele music in their head. After all, the ukulele originated in the 19th century as a Hawaiian adaptation of the Portuguese machete, a small guitar-like instrument introduced to the islands by immigrants. In celebration of Hawaii’s favorite instrument, the annual Ukulele Festival is one of our favorite summer traditions, and you’ll want to head on over there this weekend, Saturday, July 21, 2019, to experience the fun for yourself.
Address: Kapiolani Park Bandstand, 2686-2882 Kalakaua Ave, Honolulu, HI 96815
