Tiny House Festival returns for third year

More than 40 small living structures to be displayed at Adams County Fairgrounds

Posted

More than 40 small living structures, from tiny houses on wheels to container homes, will be on display at the Colorado Tiny House Festival, returning for its third year June 21-23 at the Adams County Fairgrounds.

Other structures on display will be skoolies, van conversions, gypsy wagons, teardrops, yurts and more. The festival also will debut its Camping Corner and a Skoolie Build Workshop.

Camping Corner will showcase the latest small living structures.

The hands-on Skoolie Build/bus conversion workshop will feature experts who have completed multiple conversions and live in their skoolies. The workshop is limited to 50 people. Registration includes weekend admission to the festival.

The event is hosted by the Colorado Tiny House Association.

Art Laubach, Colorado Tiny House Festival organizer and director, is working to organize the tiny living movement in Colorado and help make tiny home living legal in the state.

“Tiny home living is becoming a bigger deal in Colorado,” Laubach said in a news release. “Durango’s first tiny-home community, Escalante Village, was recently announced, the small-home community Creede America continues to expand, many mountain towns have built tiny homes to rent to workers as affordable housing options, the town of Lyons recently approved an ordinance allowing a limited number of tiny homes to be used as accessory dwelling units, and now the town of Fountain is considering adopting zoning rules for tiny homes.”

In addition to tours of nearly 40 unique small living structures, attendees will enjoy expert speaker presentations, hands-on workshops, a product and service marketplace, entertainment, food, drink and more.

A home is considered “tiny” if it has less than 600 square feet of living space. Financial advantages include low construction and land costs, low utilities and upkeep.

The festival runs from noon to 5 p.m. June 21 and from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. June 22-23. Single-day tickets cost $10 if purchased online or $15 on the day of the event. Children ages 12 and younger are free. Three-day tickets also are for sale, for $20 if purchased in advance or $30 if purchased at the event.
