Aloha Spirit reigns at Ukulele Festival
Share the Aloha Spirit at the 23rd Ukulele Festival of Northern California. Promoting and perpetuating ukulele music, the Ukulele Festival of Northern California is the longest running festival of its type on the mainland. This local event has attracted ukulele enthusiasts from Canada to the East Coast to the Islands of Hawaii, as well as local talent throughout California. Playing with a group of people, with another person, or solo, enthusiasts have carried and played ukuleles throughout the world.
The Ukulele Festival was founded by the late uncles Hollis Baker and John Ogao, well-known musicians from the San Francisco Bay Area's Polynesian community. They epitomized grand musicians and ukulele players during their time, earning the respect of fellow musicians and entertainers of all generations. During their retirement years, the uncles organized the first festival in March 1994 with help from family members, friends, and students of Bakers ukulele class (Kaleponi Strings) who continue to host this event.
