The Tampa Bay Ukulele Society (TBUS) is recognized as the largest active Ukulele Society in the nation with over 3000 members in Tampa Bay. City officials and downtown merchants labeled the 2022 UkeFest as one of the most successful events to be held in the rejuvenated Downtown Clearwater District. The 2023 event will feature expanded free classes and paid advanced workshops, as well as music-oriented vendors and family activities.
We are a 501(c)3 charitable organization. Our mission is to provide Entertainment, Education and Community Service to the greater Tampa Bay Area. Through our TBUS Cares program we have made donations to over a dozen charities, donated ukuleles to Schools and Libraries in Hillsborough, Pasco, Hernando and Pinellas Counties, and donated the time of our members to teach free beginner ukulele workshop programs.
