Aloha Wahines, Kanes, Beachcombers, Carvers, Mixolgists, Tikiphiles and lovers of everything Polynesian Pop, Tiki Kiliki Productions is pleased to announce the 9th annual Hukilau, in association with Seven Tiki Rum, Trader Vic’s and Tiki Farm, taking place from June 10th to June 13th, 2010, in beautiful Ft. Lauderdale Florida.

Plan now for your June Polynesian Pop vacation weekender which unites Tikiphiles from around the world! The Mai-Kai, now in its 54th year, awaits you with its dimly lit entrance, its cavernous mazes and magical memories! Be dazzled by four days of exotic and intoxicating art, entertainment, music, historic seminars, fashion and of course, drink! Though The Bahia Cabana is sold out, the magnificent Bahia Mar has plenty of rooms (with marina views) available for the incredible rate of $114.00 per night.

The Hukilau 2010 featured events:

The Hukilau has the distinct privilege of presenting the Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale’s Oceanic Collection donated by none other than the Mai-Kai itself in the early 1970s. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to view this world-class collection for the first time.

The Hukilau special guest, artist SHAG, will be debuting three new paintings as part of the on-site Harold Golen Gallery art show installation “Poly Blend.”

The master mixologist, Jeff “Beach Bum” Berry, returns with an all-new seminar about The Suffering Bastard!

Florida historian Lu Vickers, author of “Weeki Wachee, City of Mermaids: A History of One of Florida’s Oldest Roadside Attractions” will delight and enthrall with her seminar, slide show and vintage film footage.

The Hukilau has not one but two film debuts in store for The Hukilau 2010. Filmmaker Jochen Hirschfeld presents the world premiere of “The DVD Of Tiki,” five years in the making – a film crew traveled the Pacific for 101 days capturing both the true South Seas and its pop culture reinvention – a true labor of love. Duda Leite, back from Sao Paulo, Brazil, brings a full feature-length version of his fabulous “Tikimentary: In Search Of The Lost Paradise,” all about the modern-day Tiki movement!!
