The Central Coast Ukulele Festival

Hello and Happy New Year wonderful ukulele players,

At this stage I am happy to say we are still all a go for our Central Coast Ukulele Festival March 4,5, and 6. 2022

The outcome of our meeting yesterday is if the law allows us, then we are ready to go!  Whoo hooo!

We are as excited and we all have our fingers crossed.

We have a wonderful festival planned to include for the first time a ukulele breakfast for Sat/Sun, plus uke jams and open mic, workshops, a mobile barista cart, paella cart, merchandise stalls, luthiers and music music music from all you wonderful players and more.

A courtesy bus is available all weekend, the local bowling club has free camping for those who are self-sufficient. Accommodation is available around the Lake including Belmont and Swansea as the Ferry is now up and running to Wangi Wangi. I will send a timetable with the program once we have 100% guarantee.

IF however the powers that be come and spoil our fun (again) I have been guaranteed that only the date will move to a time that is safe for all of us to enjoy.

We have been waiting and waiting to find out if any changes will occur to our festival this year.

The current status until January 27th we may not be able to go ahead.

Whatever the new restrictions announced are we will be making our final decision based on NSW health between February 5-7 so stand by.

At a pinch we may be able to hold the entire festival outside under awnings and marquees by the Lake as another option.

So stand by for further details.

Keep strumming and fingers crossed.

I look forward to seeing you soon

Central Coast Ukulele Festival 21/22


Aloha wonderful ukulele players.


After great debate, watching the current COVID figures rising and spreading throughout NSW, and with the uncertain duration of our lockdowns, there is virtually no prospect (or very little) at this stage to safely hold our Central Coast Ukulele Festival on 1st-3rd October 2021.

Our priority has always been to keep you all safe and to enjoy a festival free from worry and covid.  Perhaps by the end of the year, most of us will be vaccinated and out of lockdown and we can plan with clarity an amazing enjoyable ukulele festival. Due to our cancellation in 2020 and now this in 2021 we are determined that covid will not get the better of us or stop live music.

With that said we have rescheduled/moved (not cancelled) our festival to the 4-6 March 2022! We plan to have a brilliant safe and fun ukulele festival (as it was to be)  All precautions will be in place to assure you that we have your best interest at heart, all covid safe protocols in place that need to be in for our 2022 Central Coast Ukulele Festival.

Same venue: Wangi Wangi RSL, NSW

The weather will be warmer, longer days, and we will be able to utilize the beautiful waterfront that Wangi Wangi RSl has to offer by erecting two more outdoor stages and a jam area, we will include ukes in cafes and markets.

We will have the same line up of acts and there is always room for more.

For everyone who has registered we will play it forward.

If you have booked accommodation, I believe Airbnb and in fact most accommodation will refund you due to this pandemic.

We have left our decision until now as we were hoping the situation with covid would ease to enable us to get back to some live music. Thank you for your support and understanding.  We look forward to a great year next year full of live music and ukulele festivals.

Thank you for your understanding



The Central Coast Ukulele Festival 2022

Aloha to all!

The Central Coast Ukulele club are in our tenth year and we would like to celebrate our 9th/10th Festival (would have been 10th however due to COVID-19 we had to cancel last year and 2020).

We are planning a fun and slightly different Central Coast Ukulele Festival this year adding a new venue who have kindly come forward and offered their entire club for our special event. More to come shortly.

The advice to me is they are slowly returning to normal and complying strictly to social distancing and hygiene. The Central Coast Ukulele Festival is welcome to go ahead as it has always been a popular community event with live music, workshops an all-in ukulele jam and sing-along, live ukulele groups and acts, raffles, merchandise tables, markets stalls and more.

Planning is in line with COVID restrictions and regulations.   

When:           March 4,5,6 2022

Where:           Wangi Wangi RSL, suburb on Lake Macquarie                        

275 Watkins Rd, Wangi Wangi NSW

Accommodation is available at Wangi Wangi and surrounding areas of Lake Macquarie. There is brilliant camping, van parks and grounds in the area and around the Central Coast. If you have a boat Swansea, Belmont, Blacksmiths, Caves beach, Gwandalan are easy access as there is a boat ramp opposite the club.

Details of program will be advised once all applications are final.

Wangi Wangi is 30 minutes from Wyong, 1.5 hours from Sydney, 36 minutes from Ourimbah, 50 minutes from The Entrance, 50 minutes from Newcastle.

Wangi Wangi (/ˈwɒndʒi wɒndʒi/) is a suburb of the City of Lake Macquarie in New South WalesAustralia, which forms a peninsula jutting eastwards into Lake Macquarie. Wangi Wangi is a well-known holiday spot, that was frequented in the early days by families from the coalfields. It is known for its beautiful views, bushwalking, and fishing spots.

Wangi is also well known as the former home of artist William Dobell. Dobell’s 1948 Wynne Prize winning landscape Storm Approaching Wangi depicts the locality.

Along with event attendees all over the world, we’ve been watching the COVID-19 pandemic as it evolves. We recognize how stressful this particular situation is, and we share your concerns.

We stand with all of you and the broader event community during a time when our industry is being deeply affected. We have faith and are putting in place all safeguards to have a great festival.

Looking forward to seeing you and your music

With so many uncertainties and restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, it is with much regret and sadness that we, the Central Coast Ukulele Club along with The Diggers Club have come to the difficult decision to cancel this year’s 9th Central Coast Ukulele Festival 2020.

The decision was made with everyone’s health, safety and well-being in mind, along with the current NSW Government covid-19 restrictions

Thank you to everyone who applied to perform and a huge thank you to our amazing headline acts for your understanding.

We were living with optimism and hoped that the world would get better however the decision was sent to us yesterday to postpone our festival until next year.

Yes, the good news is same place and time next year. This will be bigger and better! So, the program will remain the same with more inclusions and more acts just 12 months forward.

Stay safe, healthy and keep strumming.


Love to you all.
