I think is is appropriate that May 2 is the day that everyone who has a ukulele, less it be a $2 one to a $10,000 jewel of a ukulele, play it and spread the ukulele love.  So as one uke player to all the rest, HAPPY PLAY YOUR UKULELE DAY!!!!

One question, why are so many people saying National Play Your Ukulele day? Shouldn’t it be International Play Your Ukulele Day?




  1. Jeff says:

    I started playing at 12:01 this morning.

  2. Donald Doss says:

    I got through most of “It’s Only a Paper Moon” before my boss told me to stop.
    He doesn’t care what day it is.

    I will continue after 5:00.

  3. KRSTF says:

    From France : Happy International Ukulele Day… To every uke lovers & players worldwide


    And now back to my ukulele !

  4. Janet says:

    I just sent an email to the fellow who “declared” this as National Play Your Ukulele Day and asked for a revision to make it “Worldwide” instead! Maybe more people could send a request?


  5. Nixon says:

    Every day is play my ukulele day.

  6. Joe says:

    I also started at 12:01 am….

    Happy Uke Day!!!!!


  7. Michael says:

    Picking mine up right now!

  8. Dolly says:

    I’m playing now. Even though I only know the one tune and driving people in the house nuts with it :))

  9. Ralf Youtz says:

    My kind of holiday! Happy strumming, everyone!!!!

    (I just bought new strings on my lunch break. I’ll get them as set as possible tonight after work! LOTS of playing!!)

  10. ukulefty says:

    Yep, every day is play your ukulele day for me! 🙂 But I’ll be sure to play extra long and loud today to support this cause! Haha!

  11. John Anthony Martin says:

    Happy Ukulele Day!

  12. Lizzie says:

    Drat! Missed it – sort of, like Nixon, every day is Play My Ukulele Day. Never mind International, let’s not be parochial, how about “cosmic!”

    If astronomers reckon that there is intelligent life somewhere out there in the universe and that they are cleverer than us then they are probably born knowing how to play the the uke.

    i missed acknowledgement of the day, but lucky i play some everyday, even if it’s just tuning up all my ukes. (not many, just 4) i need someone to push me into learning more!!!

    happy universal ukulele day!! ♫
