WHAT IS ARIZONA TIKI OASIS?
Arizona Tiki Oasis (AZTO) is the sister event to the current, long-running and much-loved Tiki Oasis (San Diego). AZTO will be held at the immaculate Mid-Century Hotel Valley Ho resort (est. 1956) in Old Town Scottsdale. Enjoy a wide range of resort activities while sipping tropical cocktails and wearing your festive aloha wear. Bask in a variety of curated experiences: sip crafted cocktails by top mixologists, browse the curated pop-up Art Show, relax in a cabana by the pool, schedule a soothing spa treatment, attend an educational seminar, relish the rooftop sunsets, sway to the Tiki Oasis soundtrack, reserve Hotel Valley Ho luau tickets, shop the outdoor marketplace with a variety of artists, makers and traders and, of course, enjoy the overall Tiki island-in-the-desert vibe. Although many events will be all ages such as the marketplace and seminars, the overall event is adult-oriented. Arizona Tiki Oasis benefits Arizona Preservation Foundation.
