ABOUT TIKI OASIS:
Arizona Tiki Oasis is the second event launched by the team of Otto and Baby Doe building on their original event Tiki Oasis. Launched in 2019, Arizona Tiki Oasis is now in its fifth year.

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 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 held at Town and Country Resort and 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, poolside entertainment, kids activities, an art exhibit, plus top experts giving educational seminars.
