Ukes on the Green: Ukulele Jam. The Steamboat Uke Jammers Club is partnering with the Park to say, “goodbye Zoom,” and come together to jam in person. Join us for a social-distanced, in-person, ukulele jam on the Green. Not to worry, there’s plenty of room for social distancing and it is in a setting that would make anyone want to play the ukulele and sing along. Come play the ukulele with fellow enthusiasts. All levels, and even musicians who play a different instrument, are welcome. Suitable for ages 12 and up. Sundays from 2 to 3 p.m. Bring something to sit on; something to hold your music; your ukulele; bug spray and sunscreen; AND, a mask!

Comedy on the Green
The Steamboat Comedy Club is providing laughs on the Green on Saturday, Oct. 3 at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. with 2 FREE stand up comedy performances. Seating is limited and reservations are required. Seating can be reserved at Donations are appreciated and will be split between the Botanic Park and the Comedy Club.
