Will I get my badge and lanyard in the mail? 

No. Your registration kit will be waiting for you at the registration table. This will include your badge and lanyard, 1 raffle ticket, Friday night concert tickets & festival program. All other concerts will be accessed with your name badge. 

Can I pick up my partners pass at registration?  

Yes you can. We will make a note in case they come looking for it. Please make sure they know the plan! 

What types of events are included in my pass? 

If you bought a: 

VIP pass: Every show and event is included in your pass 

Full Pass: Every show and event is included in your pass 

Day Pass: Every show and event that day is included in your pass (including Friday Night Celebrity Show for Friday pass holders) 

Friday Night Celebrity Show: Access to Friday night show in Celebrity Showroom 

Show Pass: Access to every evening show Wed-Sat, including Celebrity Showroom  (no workshop access) 

Do I need to sign up for my chosen workshops? 

No. We are doing our best to place the workshop in appropriate rooms based the assumed size of the class. Class rooms are large and we should have an easy time fitting everybody. 

Are vaccination/antibody tests still required? 

Yes. We began selling tickets last spring ensuring our patrons that this is an event where vaccinations or antibody tests are required and patrons made their purchases based on this knowledge. We are standing by our original decision. 

Are masks required? 

No, but they are definitely encouraged. Perry and I have been to 3 ukulele events this year, each of which had a Covid outbreak (New Mexico in May, British Columbia in June, Washington State in Sept). Thankfully everyone who caught the virus recovered fully and without incident.

The choice to wear a mask remains yours. We ask that all patrons respect each others choices on this matter, even if it doesn’t align with yours. 


Handouts are being posted onto a webpage which is password protected (for Reno participants only). 

We are not using a projector this year (it was hard to see anyway). So please print anything you want to use. 

*ipads and tablets are GREAT for this reason 

Music Stands 

You can bring a music stand, purchase one at The Strum Shop booth or get creative with your PDF's. Below is a photo I took with my translation of an invention Doug told me about from festivals past. 

As you can see below, I clipped a piece of cardboard to a swivel-hook hanger. The cardboard gave the page stability. My hanger is wider than 8 1/2, so I added an additional clip. I also would consider using sticky putty to connect the paper to the cardboard. Get creative! 

*If enough people bring their own clever invention we might have to add a "Music Stand Invention Cat Walk" to our festivities! :D

Is there a Nugget shuttle I can catch from the airport?  

Yes there is! The Shuttle from Nugget Casino will be at the airport every hour on the half hour 7:30am-8:30pm outside of Door D of the baggage claim area. (Ex: pick up times are 7:30am, 8:30am, 9:30am, etc.) Shuttle is free and there is no need to show an ID or proof of hotel reservations. (Drivers do accept tips.)
