"Intimate and unpretentious, the Auburn Gold Pan Ukulele Festival is one of the best little festivals out there. The attendees are enthusiastic and attentive- there is a real hunger to learn as well as an appetite for fun. It's great to see all-ages in attendance, both at the workshops and in the concert. Dani Joy's Pee-Wee Orchestra from the Strum Shop was a real highlight- a fantasy of what kids can do with a great leader. Ukulele is all about community, and the folks who put this one on really value a good time. It's a great place to visit and it makes you want to live there!"
