Saturday the 4th – Sunday the 5th of July 2015.

 

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.

We would also like to thank Allen McFarlen of Barron River Ukuleles for his donation of The BBQ Uke, The Kuranda Media Association for their in-kind advertising support, The Kuranda Amphitheatre, The Kuranda Hotel Motel and all the other individuals and groups who have supported this event.

  1. Fantastic venue having been there. Some fresh chops is a darn good idea!!

  2. I am organiser of FAR NORTH UKES (FN Ukes) Cairns. We have been playing for 15 months and have gained experience by playing at Nursing Homes and other events. We number 20+ and sing in tune, we wear appropriate costume, mainly Hawaaiian shirts, with flowers and leis. Eight of the group also play with Holloways Uke group who have volunteered to play at Kuranda First Sunday in July. Our repertoire is varied with (mainly) older well known songs. Please put our name on the list for community groups. Looking forward to hearing from you. Bill Plant and Trisha Scott formerly Wangaratta, now Bribie Island have told me to contact you. Bye Noelene
