ABOUT TIKI OASIS Southern California’s family-run Tiki Oasis was conceived in 2001 as a fundraiser to support the rehabilitation of the Palm Springs Caliente Tropics Motel, the most elaborate of a chain of five California Tropics Tiki motels and an important part of Tiki history. The event was moved to San Diego in 2006 to support the historic Bali Hai Restaurant and Hanalei Hotel. Now Tiki Oasis is proud to be the original and largest Tiki event in the world and features five nights and four days of live music, dance, DJs, vendors, fashion show, poolside entertainment, car show, kids activities, art exhibit, plus top experts giving educational presentations. Its sister event, Arizona Tiki Oasis made its successful debut in 2019 and brings the island lifestyle to the desert in full Mid-Century glory.

I'm working on my painting for the TO AZ art show right now. I love these events. Where else can you go on vacation with hundreds of your friends.

I was considering combining a Route 66 road trip with AZ Tiki Oasis, but it's not going to happen. Wendy, are you and Dan going, or will you just be submitting an art piece?

I can only grantee that my painting will be there Hammo.
