SAN DIEGO TIKI OASIS: AUGUST 3rd - 7th, 2022
Tiki Oasis is the original and largest Tiki event in the world. Tiki Oasis proudly brings to San Diego five nights and four days of live music, dancing, pool lounging, sunset dinners, disc jockeys, educational seminars, a bustling Marketplace of over 150 artists and makers, tropical cocktails curated by top mixologists, art exhibit, book signing and so much more.
This year Tiki Oasis celebrates the Caribbean Islands and their influence on Tiki subculture with “Trip to the Tropics”. When we think of Tiki style we think of Polynesia, but the influence of the Caribbean — from its tropical flavors, rum, dance and Mid-Century upbeat music — has also shaped the Polynesian Pop scene we know today.

Tiki Oasis has chosen a non-profit based in the Caribbean to spotlight this year. We were introduced to David Pierre-Louis by one of our sponsors and we are very impressed with the impact he is having in Haiti.
Geared towards maintaining a balance between the economy and the Haitian ecosystems. Kay Tita is a social impact non-profit organization that serves as a conduit providing change-makers in Haiti with a safe space and the resources they need to increase their impact, develop skills, and establish key partnerships.
The organization was founded by David Pierre-Louis in 2010 after the devastating earthquake in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. Named after David’s mother, Augusta Bienvenue, who goes by Tita, Kay Tita (pronounced: kai tea-tah) means Tita’s House.
Kay Tita believe in providing Haiti’s future leaders with the resources and connections that they need to re-build Haiti’s economy. To that end, they focus on strengthening existing systems in Haiti that will create the greatest impact. Rather than simply delivering aid, they aim to ensure that this work is sustainable by forging critical partnerships and offering skills training that opens the door to opportunities.
