Past Events

Some of Tiki Kon's history is shaded in mystery, but many details and artifacts remain to tell the colorful story of our past events.

Tiki Kon 2020 was completely cancelled due to the global pandemic, including all listed performances, shows, presentations, and the vending hall. The decision was made in May, and guests were offered the option to keep their passes for 2021 or request a full refund. In spite of the cancellation, the Eye of the Tiki mugs by VanTiki were still produced and sold online.
