If you’re ready to seriously downsize your home, then be sure to check out the Decatur Tiny House Festival on Sept. 29 – 30.
Organized by TinyHouse Atlanta, MicroLife Institute and the City of Decatur, the third annual event will feature more than 20 tiny homes to explore on Electric Avenue in downtown Decatur. There will also be food trucks (tiny restaurants!), local and national vendors, guest speakers, games and an interactive kid’s area.
Three of last year’s favorites, BIGHEART Tiny House Co., Hummingbird Tiny Housing and Mustard Seed Tiny Homes will be back with stunning examples of high-end tiny living. Wind RiverTiny Homes will bring a sample of living small from Chattanooga, Lighthouse Tiny Homes will present DIY possibilities, and Lamon Lutherwill be onsite to display a tiny house outfitted with the company’s own handcrafted furniture.
In the Tiny Travel section, attendees can tour mobile vacation options like two models from sCAMPer Van, a camping concierge service that provides the campervan and all of the gear, and the 2018 nüCamp 320s teardrop RV.
Hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. Advance tickets are $20 for each day or $35 for a weekend pass. A one-day early access VIP ticket is $45 and includes entry starting at 9 a.m., t-shirt and six-month membership to MicroLife Institute.
Organizers are encouraging visitors to use MARTA or take advantage of free bicycle parking at the site.
Tickets are available at tinyhousefestival.com.
