Tiki Oasis is the original and largest Tiki event in the world. Enjoy five nights and four days of live music, pool lounging, fashion shows, swanky suites, sunset dinners, disc jockeys, art exhibits, educational seminars, busting Tiki Marketplace, and tropical cocktails curated by top mixologists and so much more!

This year, Tiki Oasis celebrates the Caribbean Islands and their influence on Tiki subculture with Tiki Oasis: A Trip to the Tropics. When we think of Tiki subculture, we think of Polynesia, but the influence of the Caribbean — from its tropical flavors, rum, dance, and Mid-Century upbeat music — has also shaped the Polynesian Pop scene we know today.

This year’s theme will be explored through educational seminars, literature, movies, and entertainment from live bands, dancers, and disc jockeys. 

Tiki Oasis will explore the flavors of the Caribbean islands with seminars, tastings, and cocktail sampling. Agriculture from the Bahamas to Trinidad includes sugarcane, bananas, coffee, tobacco, citrus, and cacao. These flavors influenced the creation of classic tropical cocktails such as the Puerto Rican Piña Colada, Panama’s Bird of Paradise Fizz, and the Jamaican Planter’s Punch, all of which influenced what we now call “Tiki Drinks.”

Tiki Oasis will also celebrate the music and dance of the region. The original Afro-Caribbean music of Trinidad known as Calypso is authentic island music and was an early influence on Jamaican Rocksteady, Ska, and early Reggae. The dance styles are often described as fluid, sensual, and rhythmic. Popular vibrant dances included the mambo, rumba, and merengue that borrow and riff from mixing African, European, and indigenous cultures. 

Tiki Oasis is being held at Town and Country Resort. Family-owned since it was built as a 40-room roadside lodge in 1953, Town and Country, Mission Valley’s first hotel, underwent major expansions in 1968 and 1969. In honor of Town and Country’s history and mid-century roots, the hotel completed a $70 million dollar renovation in 2020 and has been re-imagined into a modern retreat unlike any other hotel in San Diego!

Our event prides itself on being all-inclusive; everyone is welcome to join in on the fun! At Tiki Oasis, we make a concerted effort to ensure all our attendees feel valued, safe, and free to be their most authentic selves.

Dear Arizona Tiki Oasis Attendees,

It took a village to restart Arizona Tiki Oasis and two years later we want to thank some of the people that encouraged us and helped us to get energized and inspired to relaunch the event. We couldn’t have done it without the support of the participants: staff, artists, disc jockeys, seminar educators, sponsors, marketplace crafters, artists and traders, mixologists volunteers, and of course the super supportive Hotel Valley Ho staff. Cheers to our featured local artist, Jon Arvizu, and longtime friend and collaborator world-renown artist SHAG. Special thanks to Janek at Bauer Pottery, Tiki AZ moderators Ross, Leigh, and James; Cobain for Decor; Dana from Hula’s Modern and the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community. We especially want to thank the Arizona Preservation Foundation for their ongoing support and shared values of Architectural Preservation. Lastly, we give gratitude to our sons Vander and Dashiell for inspiring us to keep creating and producing events.

XOXO

We here at Arizona Tiki Oasis headquarters have been keeping a close eye on the rapidly evolving COVID-19 situation. Last week, though we were seven weeks from our event and we have not had any cancellations from performers, speakers, or sponsors, we were highly concerned that we might be forced to cancel at the last minute. We didn’t feel that we could move forward with our April event. Though we were ALL were looking forward to a weekend in SUNNY Scottsdale, we were confident the correct thing to do would be to postpone the event.

Now here is the GOOD NEWS! We worked closely with the Hotel Valley Ho and our nonprofit partner, Arizona Preservation Foundation, and have settled on a new date for 2020…drum roll… the weekend of Halloween Oct 29-Nov 1!! Say, what?! A sophisticated Tiki Halloween party in the desert?!

MORE ABOUT TIKI OASIS

Tiki Oasis celebrates its 20th event in 2020! Southern California’s family-run Tiki Oasis was conceived in 2001 as a fundraiser to support the rehabilitation of the Palm Springs Caliente Tropics Motel, the most elaborate of a chain of five California Tropics Tiki motels and an important part of Tiki history. The event was moved to San Diego in 2006 to support the historic Bali Hai Restaurant and Hanalei Hotel. Now Tiki Oasis is proud to be the original and largest Tiki event in the world and features five nights and four days of live music, dance, DJs, vendors, fashion show, poolside entertainment, car show, kids activities, art exhibit, plus top experts giving educational presentations all taking place on a private 44-acre island, Paradise Point. Its sister event, Arizona Tiki Oasis made its successful debut in 2019 and brings the island lifestyle to the desert in full Mid-Century glory.
