Florida Tiny House Festival 2017
Nov. 17–19, 2017 at St. Johns County Fairgrounds
The Tiny House Festival is an event that seeks to educate and promote the Tiny House lifestyle. The event features model homes, workshops, entertainment, and house tours.
More than 60,000 people attended the festival last year. Vendors will be set up throughout the fairgrounds with houses, tools, and guides to tiny house building for sale.
Featured Speakers include Derek "Deek" Diedricksen host of HGTV's Tiny House Builders, Alexis Stephens & Christian Parsons from Tiny House Expeiditon which documents tiny homeowners, Michelle Bredeson Boyle co-host of the Tiny House Podcast, and Kari “Yurt Grrl” Cooper who is a full-time yurt dweller and expert.
Other guests include a Builder & Trade Professionals Q&A panel, specialists, and a homeowner panel.
Along with tiny houses, guests will be able to see renovated campers and school buses. The event is dog-friendly so feel free to bring a pet along.
For kids, there will be a “Tiny Tot Town” with story time featuring the reading of the children’s book “The Big Adventures of Tiny House.” There will also be other kid activities to get the young ones interested in tiny living.
