TIKI KON, the Pacific Northwest’s original “Tiki Weekender” celebrates its 10th anniversary event with a multi-faceted three-day event (August 3-5, 2012) packed full of festivities. In addition to celebrating the Tiki lifestyle with a weekend of live music, art, DJs and more, Tiki Kon 2012 presents a family produced exploration into the visual arts, mixology and culinary symposiums, vintage fashion exhibitions, plus a free daytime shopping Island Marketplace with over 20 vendors.
In spirit of its organic growth, Tiki Kon 2012, themed “The Ten Year Tour,” moves into a resort-style hotel, the Red Lion on the Columbia River where the event will draw over 300 attendees from up and down the West Coast. Highlighting the celebration, Paul Nielsen of Munktiki, the genre’s most sought-after creator of tiki mugs and Portland resident will design and produce this year’s 10th anniversary commemorative mug (pictured).
Tickets range from $25 for the opening night party only to $100 for an all-inclusive pass.
