Uke Fest Back at Lake Anne on July 14

The tranquil sounds of tiny strings will return to the Lake Anne waterfront when the 3rd Annual Ukulele Festival takes place on Saturday, July 14 from 11a.m.-5:30 p.m. in the heart of historic Reston. The free music festival will feature performances by several internationally known and local ukulele musicians, music demonstrations, open to the public jam
