Ukulele BBQ Kuranda is an annual event in its 5th year hosted by Bosko & Honey and Honey’s community ukulele group, Honey & Spice in the grounds of the beautiful Kuranda Amphitheatre, very close to Cairns in Australia’s tropical Far North Queensland. The Kuranda Amphitheatre is a community-run venue which also co-presents and supports the Ukulele BBQ.
Ukulele BBQ Kuranda has traditionally occurred on the Monday following the Cairns Ukulele Festival (CUF), but this year we’re expanding into a 2-day event to help fill the void left by CUF cancelling. We’re also very pleased to have the support of an additional venue and holding Saturday’s free concert at The Kuranda Hotel‘s beautiful Firefly Pool Bar.
Check out the Program – there are plenty of free performances by local, out-of town and interstate acts as well as performing community groups from the Tablelands to Mission Beach!
The tradition will continue with the centrepiece being the famous everyone-is-welcome Open Mic Stage with a by-donation Gourmet BBQ supplied and prepared by the Honey & Spice crew!
Ukulele BBQ Kuranda 2015 is pleased to have received a grant from the Regional Arts Development Fund (RADF), a partnership between the Queensland Government and Mareeba Shire Council.
