Tiki Caliente 4 took place May 18-20th 2012 once again at the Travel Lodge, Palm Springs. This Event was a transformation to a more MOD version of a Tiki Event. A Frank Sinatra/Rat Pack meets Martin Denny style show. With an incredible group of vendors,artist and entertainment this was the year Tiki Caliente hit it's stride. Our Little event grew to just below 500 people passing through the grounds of the host hotel. With the sell out of the 3 surrounding hotels we came to realize that this is as big as we want our event to grow.
