The Chicago Ukulele Cabaret will once again kick off post-July 4th weekend with a 4-string bang at its 3rd Annual Festival. Part curated showcase and part open-mic, this all day fest allows everyone to participate while showcasing several featured performers in full sets. 

As always, the show will offer something for everyone, from traditional players, to classical virtuosos, to full band and indie rock interpretations. Building on the success of last year's outing, organizers this year are adding an 11:00 AM Powerstrums 101 workshop with The Old Town School of Folk Music's Lanialoha Lee.  

The afternoon will include a 5-hour open mic session, and the curated evening show will feature full sets from perennial cabaret favorites such as Lanialoha Lee, Bone and Bell, Heavy Boxes, Harrison Street Ukulele Players, Jeffrey Weisfeld Combo, Hee Haw, Discarded Pearls, Vic Miguel, Troy Martin, and many more!

All are welcome to perform during our five hour open mic segment from 1:00-6:00 PM.
