The tiny living movement seems to be one of the fastest-growing housing trends in the US right now. The popularity of tiny homes probably lies in the fact that they represent precisely the life we dream of: one that is simple, with freedoms, and have less of an impact on the environment. Also, let's admit it, they're so darn cute! If you are interested in knowing more about tiny houses in Florida, there is a festival coming to the Tampa area that will be your mini heaven.
The Florida Suncoast Tiny Home Festival, formerly known as St Pete Tiny Home Festival, is coming back this spring with the most enchanting micro houses, taking place on March 28 and 29.
More than 30 different little houses will be on display, as well as schoolies (decked out, converted school buses) and converted vans.
You can admire every construction detail, marvel at the interior design, and why not, imagine for a moment that one is your forever home.
The fun will be happening at England Brothers Park, located 2 miles from central St. Pete and 15 miles from the Tampa International Airport.
Every day of the festival the fun will run from 10:00 in the morning until 6:00 in the afternoon.
You'll be able to participate in workshops, talk to over 20 experts, and explore some of the cutest tiny houses in Florida.
Some will be for sale too, in case you are seriously considering embracing the tiny life.
If you need refreshments after all that exploring, there will be food trucks offering a variety of delicious snacks and drinks, live music performances, vendors (including mobile boutiques), and activities for adults and children alike.
The admission ticket for this adorable tiny home festival is only $10 for one day or $15 for both days if you buy as an early-bird. After that, general admission is $15 per one day or $20 for both. Children under 12 enter for free.
Parking at the event is free but limited, so we highly recommend taking alternative forms of transportation to get you there.
The organizers say that this event is rain or shine and that no alcohol containers will be allowed.
Well behaved pets are more than welcome to attend on a leash, but they will not be allowed in any of the tiny houses, so it's probably a better idea to leave your furry friend home for this one.
