Aloha to all!
The Central Coast Ukulele club are in our tenth year and we would like to celebrate our 9th Festival (would have been 10th however due to COVID-19 we had to cancel last year) with you.
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: October 1-3 (October long weekend.)
Where: Wangi Wangi RSL, suburb on Lake Macquarie

Wangi Wangi (/ˈwɒndʒi wɒndʒi/) is a suburb of the City of Lake Macquarie in New South Wales, Australia, 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.
