The 'Ukulele Festival of Northern California was founded by the late "uncles" Hollis Baker and John Ogao, well-known musicians of the San Francisco Bay Area's Hawaiian Community. These "uncles" organized the first Festival in March 1994 with help from a few family members, friends & students from Hollis' 'ukulele class.
They shared a vision for this festival. And their legacy lives on through our mission statement:
"To promote and perpetuate the playing of 'ukulele music through an annual event for all levels of 'ukulele players while exposing the youth in hopes that they will carry on the traditions and music."
