Tiki Oasis 9, August 13th, San Diego

A convention for Tiki lovers! Join Tiki Oasis as we take over an entire hotel for a 4-day weekend of wild and wooly fun in the sun!

Escape the stress of everyday life with a weekend getaway to Tiki Oasis. Within minutes you will be relaxing by a pool surrounded by tropical landscaping and watched over by a 10 foot tall guardian Tiki. You can order a tropical cocktail without leaving the comfort of your chaise lounge. Or take a stroll into the secluded Tiki atrium, sit by the Koi fish pond, and listen to the soft waterfall serenade. If its excitement you want, then check out live Tiki carvers and roam the bustling bazaar with over 60 vendors peddling wares from around the world. Take in the sounds of live disc jockeys and bands, watch a movie, or dance the Boogaloo at our all-night Beach Party!
