Georgia Tiny House Festival returns to Macon

MACON, Ga. — The 4th Annual Georgia Tiny House Festival returns to Macon from Friday, March 1 to Sunday, March 3, hosted by United Tiny House Association. This year’s festival promises another huge event that celebrates and showcases the tiny houses and the people who are living the tiny lifestyle!  

Held on the grounds of downtown’s Central City Park, the festival is planning to display of all sorts of small living structures; from tiny houses to yurts, vintage campers to gypsy wagons, converted school buses, RVs and many other forms of tiny dwellings to suit the tastes of all.

The Tiny House Festival will be jam-packed with live entertainment. Starting with a free concert and fire performances on Friday night, various live performances will line up Saturday and Sunday’s show.

On a more practical side, the festival will also feature trailblazers of the tiny house movement from all over the United States who will host workshops and lectures from a wide array of topics such as tiny house construction, legalities and code enforcement, the tiny lifestyle, off-grid living and many more. A new addition to this year’s festival is the “3-Day Hands-On Skoolie Build Workshop” (“Skoolie” is a term for school buses converted to living spaces). Registration is required to attend this workshop, but spaces have already been sold out.

The organizers of the Georgia Tiny House Festival, United Tiny House Association, are also working closely with charities in Macon and Middle Georgia to raise money and donations for various causes. All major events by UTHA have always supported local charities in their host cities, and the upcoming 2019 Georgia festival will be no different. 

“Our organization, which has now grown to over 32K+ members in just three short years, is looking forward to once again having our event provide awareness of the global tiny house community, and to continue in our efforts of being a positive influence of the economic growth within the local communities where we host our Tiny House Festivals; and in also being a source of fundraising for local charities and various non-profit organizations,” John Kernohan, Chairman of United Tiny House Association, said in a press release.

The 2018 festival featured 92 structures, attended by thousands of people according to the event’s website. Making it not only an enormous success for the United Tiny House Association but the third largest tiny house festival in the world.

As with previous Tiny House Festivals, dog-friendly accommodations will be available on the festival grounds, including shaded pet rest areas and water bowls. There will also be drawings held for “Tiny Dog House on Wheels”. Tickets for the raffle will cost either a donation of three pounds of dry dog food, or $5.

The 4th Annual Georgia Tiny House Festival will start on 12:00 p.m. Friday afternoon. On Saturday and Sunday, the gates will be open from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Tickets will cost $20 for one-day admission and $35 for two-day admission, online tickets are available at a discounted price here.

However, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Friday, the gates will be open to the public for the live performances. Drop by and see the awesome performances and the tiny, tiny houses that are changing the world in a big way.
