Ukulele Festival

Please note: This event has already occurred.
What's shaped like a guitar, fits snugly inside a backpack and lends a folksy twang to everything from campfire ditties to swing music? The glory of the ukulele comes shining through at this third annual festival. Local ukulele players perform throughout the day, including Baltimore-based Victoria Vox and multi-instrumental duo the Sweater Set. You can also take part in public jam sessions, imbibe at the beer garden and peruse the arts and crafts vendors. And should you arrive sans uke -- gasp -- you can purchase one of your own to take home.
