The 5th Annual Allegheny Ukulele Soirée
The Allegheny Ukulele Soirée is Pennsylvania's longest running Ukulele festival, located in central PA in the foothills of the Alleghenies. Dedicated to sharing the ukulele with both the local and ukulele communities, the Soirée blends practical workshops with cultural exploration. The Soirée was established in February of 2014 as a way to introduce ourselves to the community and to grow our Ukulele club membership. We had such a good time we decided to do it again! Our primary goal is to share our love of the Ukulele with the local community. The Soirée also presents an opportunity for us to bring in top talent in the Ukulele world to central Pennsylvania.
In our first year, we saw over 100 people at the Soirée (at the time, a 6 hour event)! Since the turnout was so fantastic, we decided to take the plunge and make this an annual festival. We plan to slowly grow the festival over the next few years - bringing in the best uke artists we can all while keeping our registration fees low enough for just about anyone to attend. In 2018, due to overwhelming demand, we have remained at the Laurel Lodge!
