Who doesn’t love festivals? Who doesn’t love tiny houses? What about… a festival entirely dedicated to tiny houses?
If you’re in New Jersey this weekend, you’re in luck, because that’s exactly what’s happening.
The New Jersey Tiny House Festival will take place at the Sussex County Fairgrounds from Friday June 16-Sunday 18. It’ll feature display homes, speakers, activities and more, with over 30 tiny houses on display, many of which are DIY, including a converted school bus and a yurt.
It all sounds adorable and amazing, which it is, and it’s made even better by having an important, meaningful purpose.
Among the 16 speakers will be New Jersey state Senator Raymond Lesniak. Lesniak recently introduced legislation aiming to develop a program which sees tiny houses built for the state’s homeless population. He’ll be speaking about the need to introduce tiny houses to assist the growing homeless population. Elsewhere, speakers will talk sustainable living, reducing the carbon footprint and solar energy.
What’s more, workshops will be taking place about things like alternative energy, solar power and compost toilets. On top of the festivities there’ll also be food, kid’s games, live music and even a fire performance.
And as if the New Jersey Tiny House Festival couldn’t get any better, pets are welcome, and one lucky dog owner will go home with a tiny house for their pup.
