In addition to workshops that will provide six hours of professional development credit, there will be concerts, vendors, an open mic and jams offered throughout the weekend.

Additional workshop topics will include skill building, techniques, composition, collaboration, production and hands-on experience. Music teachers and professional performers are part of the Uke Fest population.
