Tiki Oasis Returns To San Diego This August 3-7 With "Trip To The Tropics" Theme

July 2, 2022

Known as the original and largest Tiki event in the world, Tiki Oasis returns to San Diego this August 3 through 7 with a "Trip to the Tropics" theme. 

Held nearly every summer in San Diego since 2006 and always a complete sell-out, Tiki Oasis is the biggest annual tiki party in the world offering a multi-day event that celebrates the "tiki lifestyle" with music, art, cars, cocktails and fun in the sun. This year, attendees will enjoy five nights and four days of live music, pool lounging, fashion shows, swanky suites, sunset dinners, disc jockeys, art exhibits, educational seminars, busting Tiki Marketplace, tropical cocktails curated by top mixologists and much more. Highlight events include the Wednesday Meet & Greet Sunday Night Showcase, and Saturday & Sunday Art Show and Marketplace (which is free and open to the public).

Tiki Oasis is a family-produced, Polynesian lifestyle convention & party that kicks off with a "meet & greet" event on Wednesday, August 3, before taking over the Town & Country Resort in Mission Valley in full force for a weekend celebration filled with parties, events and activities. Tiki Oasis attendees experience four days of mixology, live and DJ music sets, educational symposiums, book signings, marketplace shopping, art, burlesque, comedy, vintage cars, fashion, food, pool parties, kids events, and so much more.

Tiki Oasis was conceived in 2001 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 moved to San Diego in 2006 and has since grown to include over 30 symposiums, 100 vendors, numerous sponsors, a slew of talent including live bands, disk jockeys, burlesque and go-go dancers, visual artist and carvers, guitar and ukulele instructors, vintage cars, mixology experts and well over 3,000 attendees annually. This year's Tiki Oasis has the theme "A Trip to the Tropics" and guests are encouraged to embrace the flare of Polynesia and the Caribbean.

Tickets to Tiki Oasis always sell out in advance. Seminars can be purchased a la carte online in advance. For more information, a full schedule of events, and to purchase tickets, visit tikioasis.com.
