Only alcohol purchased from hotel staff may be consumed on premises outside of private guest rooms. Consumption of outside alcohol may result in confiscation and your exclusion from the event.

Flippers will be banned and publicly shamed.
  7. You agree to not re-sell Tiki Kon tickets/passes for more than you paid for them and understand that doing so will result in a permanent ban from attending future events.
  8. You agree to never be cross, mean, rude, or disrespectful to Tiki Kon volunteers, and understand that this is never acceptable and is grounds for being ejected without refund and permanently banned from the event. Volunteers work for free and deserve respect. If you are incapable of expressing yourself civilly and need someone to shout at, ask to speak to a manager or event organizer.
  9. You agree to not attempt to acquire tickets/passes for which you are not eligible, through dishonesty, hacking the system, or any other fraudulent means, and understand this will result in a permanent ban.
  10. You agree not to sell photographs or time based media captured at Tiki Kon, or use them for any commercial purposes, without the express written consent of a) all persons appearing therein, and b) the owners of any copyrighted or trademarked materials appearing therein.


Though we hearken back to an era when men and women dressed more formally than they do today, Tiki Kon has a fairly relaxed dress code. We encourage guests to dress in their best vintage attire and/or festive aloha wear, especially for the Saturday banquet dinner, but more casual attire is acceptable.

The following are not allowed in public areas at Tiki Kon:

  • Clothing or accessories with political, divisive, obscene, evangelical, or otherwise objectionable language or graphics
  • Costumes that obscure a guest's identity
  • Bare feet, except poolside

Guests who violate the dress code will be asked to immediately change their clothing. Failure to comply may result in immediate ejection from the Event without refund. Determination of whether attire violates the dress code will be solely at the discretion of Tiki Kon staff.


By attending Tiki Kon, you consent to being photographed, filmed and/or otherwise recorded by official event photographers, members of the press, vendors, other guests, and other affiliates.  Your entry into the Event constitutes your consent to such photography, filming and/or recording and to any use, in any and all media throughout the universe in perpetuity, of your appearance, voice and name for any purpose whatsoever in connection with Tiki Kon.
