On-line Workshop Registration is Now Closed!
But we’d still love to see you at the 2014 Wine Country ‘Ukulele Festival! So, for a limited time you can still purchase tickets to the festival at the early bird price (and meal tickets for the Big Jam Saturday Night and the Luau on Sunday) by registering on-line. (You just won’t be able to pre-register for workshops. But, you will be able to do that at the festival.)
