ABOUT TIKI OASIS
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. 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.

Thank You from Arizona Tiki Oasis 2021!

From the organizers of Arizona Tiki Oasis 2021, recapping the event!

We did it! We are calling Arizona Tiki Oasis 2021 a wonderful success! The event went above and beyond our expectations. Everyone followed all safety precautions and made our job easy breezy. The Tiki community really rallied and supported us when we all needed it the most. Now that we see California opening up and we know we can host something that brings people so much joy we are more excited than ever to be planning for our San Diego event this summer.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
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?!
