Arizona Tiki Oasis will have an island lifestyle party Friday-Sunday, April 12-14, at Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale.

“We are thrilled to introduce Tiki Oasis’ rich and varied history to Scottsdale travelers and locals,” according to a release from organizers Otto and Baby Doe Stroheim.

“Hotel Valley Ho is the ideal location for the largest and longest-running Tiki festival in the world, as the property perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the 1950s that we celebrate through classic Tiki culture.”

The weekend includes the Tiki-Tiki Ho-Ho Luau at Hotel Valley Ho’s OH Pool, complete with a traditional pig roast, fresh poke bowl station, grilled options, Hawaiian-themed desserts and an array of Tiki cocktails.

The Tiki festivities continue with a marketplace featuring more than 60 curated artisans.

In addition to an art show and more, AZTO also presents 20-plus seminars with topics ranging from tropical cocktail mixology to the history of Tiki in the Southwest.

Guests can lounge at the pool, indulge in spa treatments at VH Spa and explore the city with the hotel’s new Insider Mid-Century Tour of Scottsdale.

Event tickets range from $10 seminar tickets to an $80 evening hotel pass.

A limited number of Tiki-Tiki Ho-Ho Luau tickets are available for $99 until Friday, April 12.

Tiki Oasis was originally founded to preserve a historic Palm Springs Tiki hotel. Benefits from this year’s event at Hotel Valley Ho, 6850 E. Main St., will go to the Arizona Preservation Foundation.
