  • Fort Worden State Park (map)

Registration for the Port Townsend Ukulele Festival is closed, as the workshop is at capacity. If you’d like to be on waiting list, please send an email to Peter McCracken,, with the words “Uke Wait List” in the subject line.

The Port Townsend Ukulele Festival and Workshop is held at Fort Worden State Park, a venue unparalleled in beauty and facility. Expect four nights and three days of intense fun, ukulele instruction, and merry music making with some of the finest ukulele instructors and players working today.

Registration will be limited to 135 people, ensuring small classes and an intimate atmosphere (15/1 student faculty ratio). The workshop offerings will feature a wide variety of styles – jazz, blues, swing, Hawaiian, pop, novelty, and jugband ukulele, at the least. Specific classes will include chords, melody, improvisation, playing up the neck, performing tips, and “one-off” workshops during the Serendipity Hour. Final detailed class descriptions will be posted on the class description page. The evenings feature faculty and participant-led jams, as well as two public performances.
