Prepare to be transported to a tropical desert paradise like no other as Alohana Palm Springs presents its captivating Tiki Marketplace on October 15, from 12pm – 4pm at the Palm Springs Cultural Center. Get ready to dive headfirst into a world of vintage and modern treasures, all while basking in the warm and welcoming “Aloha” vibe that defines this extraordinary event. Arrive in time to hear a live conch shell blown by MIKE TUITASI aka MT Kahuna to open the market at 12pm!!!

My favorite part is discovering Tiki Treasures Galore. Alohana celebrates the artistry of tiki culture. Explore a treasure trove of tikis, including an incredible assortment of six-foot creations. Whether you’re a seasoned collector or just beginning your journey, the market is the ultimate destination to outfit your tiki bar or find the perfect “aloha wear” for your next gathering — or that repro Hula Girl Motion Lamp you’ve been looking for!

Before you embark on your marketplace adventure, head over to the Alohana Tiki Bar. Indulge in the devilishly delicious tropical cocktails served in one of the Alohana Collector’s Tiki Mugs. As you sip and savor, groove to the rhythm of live entertainment. The award-winning SLACK KEY ‘OHANA makes their triumphant return for the third festival, joined by the captivating KUHEI PALM SPRINGS HULA GROUP. Plus, don’t miss the debut of Coachella Valley’s beloved Ukelele ensemble, The Palm Desert Strummers.

Feast on exquisite delights. When hunger calls, rest at one of our inviting picnic tables and relish a tantalizing array of culinary delights. Satisfy your taste buds with fresh creative creations from the TKB Bakery & Deli Food Truck. Experience the unique and exotic flavors of Culinary Creations’ Japanese Shaved Ice.

Support a Worthy Cause: Alohana is more than just a market; it’s a community dedicated to making a positive impact. Pick up a limited edition MONSTER PUFFERFISH enamel lapel pin, designed by local artist Tim Rains, and help support the Maui Humane Society in their vital efforts to care for animals affected by the August 8 Maui Wildfire. This exclusive lapel pin also graces the FALL 2023 ALOHANA PALM SPRINGS EVENT POSTER. Every purchase contributes to this cause, ensuring that the spirit of “Aloha” extends far beyond the market.
