A group of volunteers has gotten together to put on the fourth annual Blackwater Ukulele Festival on Sept. 14 at Cypress Gardens.
This year all festival events are free for the price of general admission to Cypress Gardens ($10). This includes a ukulele class, hula class, a hula exhibition, concert by the Charleston Hot Shots and the V-Tones, boat ride jams, and ukulele open mic.
The group is looking for interested folks to bring their ukulele and join in the fun. If they don’t have a ukulele there will be a great selection of ukuleles for sale. It will be your one chance this year to buy a ukulele, learn how to play it and get up on stage all in the same day.
There will be local craft vendors, food vendors, boat rides, swamparium, butterfly house, talking parrots, alligators, miles of walking trails, nature center, gift store and of course access to the beautiful gardens.
