Worldwide Tiny House Festivals (27 Festivals & Details)


Why would you need a tiny house festival and show list?

Maybe you are on the fence about moving to tiny house life. Or, you are already living in a tiny house and would like to meet with similar-minded people and see new tiny house designs. Or you are just curious about the tiny house movement. Or maybe you are really happy with your huge house, and just want to confirm (once more) that tiny houses are not for you.

Whatever the situation you are in, attending to a tiny house festival is a great idea.

There are multiple tiny house festivals in the US, and also in other countries. Here is the most complete and up-to-date tiny house festivals list; with all the necessary festival information.

I have participated in multiple of the festivals listed below (before Covid-19 hits 🙁 ). And I am telling you, you will not regret it. Just check your schedule, and participate in one of the festivals below.

I hope you will like the list, and save this page for the future (note: I have ordered the list by date).

Expert Tip: Check sponsor pages for festivals.

Even if you cannot go to a festival, you will find great ideas from many companies.

Tickets: $25

Details:

Westport Country Playhouse will open its all-virtual 2021 production season with the regional premiere of “Tiny House,” a timely new comedy about downsizing, going green, escaping urban life, and fresh starts, written by Michael Gotch, and directed by Mark Lamos, Playhouse artistic director.

This thought-provoking new comedy takes place in a house built to be the perfect home by our young couple — only the essentials, exquisitely designed down to every detail, and away from the stresses of modern civilization — or so they think!

Fireworks fly when Nick and his wife Sam are joined by their survivalist neighbor, Sam’s no-nonsense mother; and a couple of quirky Rennaissance Faire devotees for a Fourth of July barbecue, and we’re reminded that there is no easy escape.

Tiny House is the perfect play for our virtual world — a world where to be with people, we must, quite literally, be invited via the screen into each other’s homes. We’ve brought on a talented group of digital artists to render the house and its forest home to life. Pull up a screen, come on by — everyone’s welcome at our tiny house.

Note: Appropriate for ages 14 and up.

A place to connect, educate, encourage and inspire those that have come across the Tiny House movement and want to learn more about what benefits ‘Going Tiny’ could hold for them.

Tiny House Festival Australia

Tiny Houses Australia runs regular Face to Face meet-ups, Online Facebook “LIVE” broadcasts, Hands-on Workshops, Regular Presentations, and Keynote talks, and of course, in 2019 they brought to life Australia’s First EVER Tiny House Festival.

With over 8,500 people from all over Australia (and internationally) attending their first Festival, it really was a sign that people are ready to make a change. People are realizing that life is short and that what REALLY matters, are relationships and experiences, and not money and things. People want to have less debt, less stress, and want to lead a happier, healthier, more sustainable, and more intentional way of life, and the Tiny House Movement is something that can really help them achieve this.

Brought to you by the team at Tiny Houses Australia, “Tiny House Festival Australia” is a celebration of all things Tiny Living. You will see…

  • Tiny Houses on display
  • Commercial & DIY
  • Guest Speakers
  • Exhibitors
  • DIY Village
  • Screenings
  • a Kids Corner
  • Sustainability Market
  • Food & Coffee
  • Prize Draws & More …

Berlin Travel Festival

I have found this website when I was looking for tiny house festivals, but it is not a tiny house festival. Maybe you are wondering, why I have listed it here. Because it is an ‘online’ travel festival and it has videos related to tiny living.

Having an online festival is an interesting idea. I have watched almost all the videos, and interesting subjects are there. Take a look. I am sure, you will like it.

Note: The videos are in German, however you can turn the subtitles on for English.
