The Hukilau | The world's most authentic Tiki event
Welcome to The Hukilau™ 2014

Start planning your wardrobes, alert your friends, book your room and plan to attend The Hukilau in 2014. Don’t miss this year of celebration with Tiki Kiliki, her team and cast of amazing entertainers & speakers as we celebrate the continued life of the greatest Polynesian Palace in the World – the Mai-Kai!

We are extending the event to 5 glorious days in the sun this year. Each one will bring new experiences and special performances for you! You can purchase tickets and book your hotel reservations now! We are so happy to be back at the Bahia Mar this year!

This year marks 13 years since The Hukilau debuted in Atlanta, GA honoring a historic Trader Vic’s location in the Downtown Hilton. We have called the Mai-Kai and Fort Lauderdale home ever since. The Mai-Kai continues to be home for the many villagers that have attended since 2003 to experience an event that has hosted thousands of Tikiphiles from all over the world. We feel honored to bring awareness to Tiki palaces on the East Coast and to help in their preservation so that many more generations are able to enjoy the spirit of Aloha.

We have the best of Entertainment from around the globe and several newcomers. Please look for more info HERE:
