Reno Ukefest 2023
October 18-21, 2023 @ The Nugget Casino & Resort, NV
Start your musical journey at the 15th Annual Reno Ukulele Festival, a 4-day event held at the Nugget Casino & Resort near the biggest little city in the world, Reno Nevada. This family friendly festival features daily sessions of workshops, evening concerts, open mics, community performances, raffle and an abundance of shopping. Ukulele entertainers & world class ukulele instructors include Daniel Ho, Steven Espaniola, Victoria Vox, Jack Maher, Heidi Swedberg, Daniel Ward, Dani Joy, Perry Stauffer, Viggy K., Ukulollo, Julie Holloman, Dominator, Moses Kamai, & Art Hopkins.
Concerts & jams are hosted nightly and the concert Friday evening will take place in Reno’s famous Celebrity Showroom, a lavish stage with draping gold fabric which transports the guests to a Sinatra-esque era. For more music you can even join one of the regular midnight jams which organically form down the hallways of the festival floor and play joyously into the early morning hours.
Reno Ukefest; an experience like no other.
Reno Ukefest; we're a family!
“The 2022 Reno Ukefest literally made my dreams come true! I switched from piano to ukulele in 2021 because I wanted an instrument to play with others. As a newcomer, I felt instantly at home in a warm, inclusive and welcoming ukulele community. It was easy to find workshops that fit my advanced beginner level and the instructors were so knowledgeable and patient. Before the festival was over, I was already asking for the 2023 dates. This will be a favorite annual event I look forward to each year! ” - Gwen Peake
— Festival attendee testimonial
“I first experienced (Dani Joy & Perry) at the 2022 Kamloops music festival in Sorrento, BC Canada. I could see the special relationship between you two was so loving and caring. The musical genius gifts you have and the hard work you put in your craft displayed in your concerts and teaching efforts is such a powerful experience to be part of. When I found out you were hosting the 2022 Reno, I had to go. I signed up for the Reno 2023 when it was announced and look forward to that experience. The Starlight classes have been such an inspiration for me.” - John Romero
