Tiki Oasis 2024 Theme: Way Out West
California has always cast a magnetic spell upon travelers drawn to America’s sunny vacation playground, where the sun meets the sea. There are plenty of westerly attractions to capture the imagination of visitors, from gold mines to beach sunsets to drive-through trees to Hollywood star sightings, but during the 1930s – 1960s, a new kind of California Gold Rush occurred: visitors steered west in search of liquid gold — Zombies and Mai Tais! After World War II, the Tiki craze took America by storm, and California was the epicenter. With the opening of Don the Beachcomber in the south and Trader Vic’s in the north, California was steeped in South Pacific romanticism and ripe for a Tiki tidal wave to hit popular culture. Concurrently, as mainstream attractions such as Disneyland steadily drew tourists, West Coast subculture began to explode with the sudden popularity of pop phenomena such as hot rods, theme parks, roadside vernacular, Googie and novelty architecture, the Beat Generation, and the rise of surf culture, as well as music movements such as West Coast Jazz, Exotica, Western Swing, and the Bakersfield sound. Eureka! You have found it — Welcome to California.
