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?!

Welcome to Arizona Tiki Oasis 2020, an island lifestyle party in the middle of the desert, held at one of the best-preserved Mid-Century hotels in America―Hotel Valley Ho (est. 1956). Hosted by Otto and Baby Doe von Stroheim,  Arizona Tiki Oasis is the sister event to the current, long-running, and much-loved Tiki Oasis, San Diego. 

What to expect at Arizona Tiki Oasis?

By day, relax in a cabana by the pool, browse through a bustling Tiki artist marketplace, enjoy our pop-up art show featuring international Tiki artists, schedule soothing spa treatments, hop on a local Mid-Century architecture tour, or take in educational seminars on topics, such as how to make the perfect Tropical Cocktail to history of Tiki in the Southwest.

In the evening, dress snazzy for adult activities that include a luau, rooftop parties with one-of-a-kind views, poolside swinging sounds and live entertainment, invitation-only swanky suite events, and late-night dancing with DJs from across the globe.

Although many events will be all-ages, such as the marketplace and seminars, the overall event is adult-oriented.

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.
