The 2017 Florida Tiny House Festival promises to once again be one of the United Tiny House Association’s biggest, is not its most biggest, and most encompassing event to date. With 97 tiny structures registered in 2016, the 2017 Florida Tiny House Festival will have a HUGE number of tinies for tours and viewing. Plus, once again, there will be three days of music, entertainment, workshops/presentation, movies, on-site camping for non-tiny home owners (tents, RV’s, travel trailers), fire performers, and more!
And Yes, the canned ham-style campers and micro Airstreams of the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s will be returning to “Happy Camper Land” for everyone to see!
A number of skoolies (converted buses) will be in attendance in “The School Yard” and be sure to visit the gypsy wagons, yurts and other special tiny homes in the “Bohemian Village”. Private-owned tiny houses will be found in “Tiny House Town” and new model tiny homes will be on display, and for sale, from a number of professional builders in “Tool City”.
The 2017 Florida Tiny House Festival, and the other Tiny House Festivals organized by the United Tiny House Association, are dog friendly. In fact, be sure to let your furry family member stop by the shaded pet rest area where water bowls will be available and a drawing will be held for a Tiny Dog House on Wheels! (For every three pounds of dry pet food dropped off you will receive a drawing ticket for the Tiny Dog House on Wheels Give-Away. Also, drawing tickets are available for a donation of $5.00. All proceeds for the raffle go to local no-kill animal rescue programs.)
Additionally, “Tiny Tot Town” will be an area for young ones to enjoy story time with the reading of the children’s book “The Big Adventures of Tiny House” and to participate in other fun activities.
Friday, between the hours of 9AM-2PM, is open exclusively to students only, then gates open at 5PM for FREE to everyone.
On Saturday and Sunday, admission is $20.00 per day ($35.00 for a 2-day admission ticket) for ages 13 and older (gates open at 9AM).
There is an outdoor concert on both Friday and Saturday night in the arena, plus additional live entertainment throughout Saturday and Sunday during the day.
Be sure to mark your calendars for a great Florida vacation and plan to attend this family-friendly event, which promises to be three days of excitement, fun, inspiration, and of course… LOTS of tiny homes!
