Tiki Oasis 19: “Catch The New Wave”

The largest and the longest-running Tiki Festival in the world happens this weekend in San Diego!

ABOUT TIKI OASIS

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 15 seminars, 100 vendors, numerous sponsors, a slew of talent which is enjoyed by over 3000 attendees.

That’s a whole lot of tiki!

See you there!
