Tiki Caliente

Tiki Culture/Polynesian Pop

If you’re a Tikiphile then you won’t want to miss “Tiki Caliente,” an annual 4 day event that brings the hip vibe of cool island living to the desert.

Every Spring (in mid May) you can gather with like-minded enthusiasts and immerse yourself in Polynesian pop culture; a retro vibe that was made popular in the post-war U.S. when sailors returning home from the South Pacific brought the esthetic of the islands with them.

Vintage Aloha wear, A-Frame architecture, original art, live music, colorful cocktails and of course, Tiki mugs, all play a big part in this retro movement so if you’re a certified Tiki culture enthusiast or just want to have fun and participate in the Aloha spirit then this is the event for you.

Check out the Tiki Caliente website for event dates and more information on Tiki Culture.
