TIKI KON IS CURRENTLY ON HOLD
We haven't officially cancelled yet, but honestly, it's not looking good. Most health experts estimate things won't start returning to normal until mid-late summer or early fall, barring a miracle. Tiki Kon is a large social gathering with a full schedule of dining, drinking, dancing, and crowded spaces, with guests from around the world. It's just not feasible or worthwhile to do it with social distancing and masking requirements in place, or if we have to slash capacity.
Tiki Kon will only proceed if we are confident we can meet safely, if local restrictions allow it, and if we have enough time to organize a quality event by July. Otherwise, Tiki Kon: Rim of Fire will be postponed until July 1-3, 2022.
That's a lot of uncertainty, but we're doing the best we can to navigate these rough seas, and we're committed to being as transparent as we can about the situation.
Will tickets go on sale as usual?
Sadly, no. We're postponing ticket sales, normally scheduled to launch on March 15, until further notice. We don't want to sell any more tickets until we're certain this year's gathering can proceed.
If you're still holding weekend passes from 2020, they're still valid, even if we can't meet again until next year. You may keep them or request a refund up to one week before the 2022 event by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do the best we can to accommodate you.
Will Tiki Kon return?
Absolutely! We already have a contract for July 1-3, 2022, at the Doubletree.
Rest assured, Tiki Kon's future is secure. If there's any silver lining, it's that the 2020 event was cancelled before we had to spend our budget, and those funds are still in reserve. We're in a strong position to re-emerge once the pandemic's over. We're just a couple years away from the event's fabulous 20th anniversary celebration, so there's much to look forward to!
