Some Tiki Kon activities take place in Portland, but most are held at our host hotel, the Red Lion at the Quay. It's right across the Columbia River in Vancouver, Washington. You don't need to stay at the hotel to enjoy any of the great weekend events, but rates are low, and you'll be just steps from the action and just minutes by car from downtown Portland and from the airport. Transportation to off-site events is available for hotel guests, so you can relax and leave the driving to us.

Hotel Guests

If you're staying with us, we recommend checking in on Friday before 7:00 p.m. and leaving your car at the hotel for the weekend. Our shuttle service will whisk you to the first event in Downtown Portland on Friday night. All Saturday events are held on-property at the Red Lion. Our Sunday bar tour buses depart from the hotel in the morning and returns in the evening.
