The Albuquerque Ukekopelli Festival has been bringing nationally-known ukulele instructors and performers to the Duke City for five years. Attendees come from across the country to share a weekend of workshops, concert, vendors, and much more. Gary Wells is your host for the weekend and looks forward to sharing his love of the ukulele with you.
The concert takes place at the African-American Performing Arts Center on the grounds of Expo New Mexico and this year the workshops will all be held at the host hotel, the Albuquerque Marriott (See Venue and Lodging page for details and map). Each year it has a theme and for 2018, it is Comic Books and Super Heroes. Be ready to release your inner super hero (or villain!) during the costume contest at the Friday evening concert with a cash prize!
