47th Annual Ukulele Festival
Since 1971, Roy Sakuma and his sponsors have been keeping the ukulele alive and well by presenting the Annual Ukulele Festival.
Presented every July at the Kapiolani Park Bandstand in Waikiki, it is by far the largest of it’s kind in the world, attracting an audience of thousands to a free two-hour concert that showcases the finest ukulele players, along with national celebrities, Hawaii’s top entertainers, and an ukulele orchestra of more than 800 students, mostly children.
In 2004, Roy and Kathy Sakuma established Ukulele Festival Hawaii, a charitable non-profit organization.
