The largest tiki convention in the world returns to San Diego this August 13-16. Tiki Oasis is a family-produced, four-day, Polynesian pop-lifestyle convention / party which takes place in America's Finest City each August, and is the only event of its kind on the West Coast. Each year Tiki Oasis presents a different theme which explores, celebrates, and preserves mid-century aesthetics via entertainment, fashion, food, drink and education, while showing its relevancy in contemporary culture. This year's theme is "Yesterday's Future Today". We are giving away 2 basic (Thursday - Saturday) wristbands for one lucky reader to join the luau. Read on and enter for your chance to win!
Tiki Oasis was conceived in 2000 as a fundraiser to support the rehabilitation of the mid-century Palm Springs Caliente Tropics Motel which attracted a small gathering of tikiphiles. The event, which moved to San Diego in 2006 and has grown to include two locations, three hotels, over 28 symposiums, 100 vendors, numerous sponsors, a slew of talent including live bands, disk jockeys, burlesque and go-go dancers, visual artists and carvers, guitar and ukulele instructors, vintage cars, mixology experts and well over 3000 attendees.
Tiki Oasis is a series of events over 4 nights and 3 days. Purchase a 4 night weekend wristband online and really appreciate the whole event!
