The 2017 New Jersey Tiny House Festival (2017NJTHF) promises to be one of United Tiny House Association’s biggest and most encompassing events to date.
Past events, such as our 2016 Florida Tiny House Festival, had 97 tiny structures, and our 2017 Georgia Tiny House Festival had 57 tiny structures.
The 2017NJTHF will be three days of music, entertainment, over 2 dozen workshops/presentation, FREE movies, on-site camping for non-tiny home owners (tents, RV’s, travel trailers), fire dancers, and more!
Also, the vintage campers will be returning! Yes, the canned ham-style campers and micro Airstreams of the 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s will be in “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 2017NJTHF, 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 4 pounds of dry pet food dropped off you will receive a raffle ticket for the Tiny Dog House on Wheels. Also, raffle tickets can be purchased for $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-8PM for FREE to everyone.
On Saturday and Sunday, admission is $20.00 per day for ages 13 and older ($35.00 for a 2-day admission ticket) and gates open at 9AM.*
*Note: Children ages 12 and younger have FREE admission all weekend. Plus, both active and retired military, law enforcement, EMTs, and fire fighters have FREE admission all weekend with a valid photo ID at the gate.
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 Garden State 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!
