Ukitopia: A Celebration of Uki Life, Arts and Culture
15 September 2016 - 19 September 2016

Ukitopia: A Celebration of Uki Life, Arts and Culture

Since 2007, the Uki community have gathered together once a year for a weekend of creativity and art. It is one of the nicest times of the year in Uki. The days are long. The fire flies are out and people seem to be having a little more time to share with each other.

Every year we come together and celebrate our unique Uki – Life, Arts and Culture. Sometimes we have “the whole shebang”: with grants and opening ceremonies; sponsors and closing ceremonies; special guests, 50 bands and wishing ceremonies; and dozens of performances in multiple venues (including a teapot!). And other times, we take it a little bit easier and simply provide the space and the reason to gather.

In every case it is a weekend not to be missed! Come along and enjoy the Uki community spirit which is UKITOPIA!
