(BRIGHTON, Colo.) The largest tiny house and alternative living event in the region, the 2021 Colorado Tiny House Festival, will return Saturday, July 10 and Sunday, July 11 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Riverdale Regional Park.

The point of the festival is to highlight the nature of the tiny living movement through current information on living tiny, minimalistic living and living greener.

Those attending the festival will get the opportunity to take a tour of a multitude of tiny houses on wheels in addition to container homes, skoolies, van conversions, quirky recreational campers, gypsy wagons, teardrops, yurts and much more. Each tiny home features distinctive floor plans, décor and noteworthy use of space.

Additional fun taking place at the festival includes live entertainment, speaker presentations from tiny living experts, a food truck court, a product and service marketplace and more. Festival-goers will get the chance to meet professional builders as well as people that DIY-built their own tiny home that can answer any tiny living questions.

Tickets are currently ranging from $10 to $20, with tickets purchased before June 15 costing $10. Tickets that are purchased between June 16 and July 9 cost $15, with tickets that are purchased online the weekend of the festival or in-person at the event for $20.

Entry to the festival for children ages 12 and younger is free.

This year's Colorado Tiny House Festival will be hosted by The Colorado Tiny House Association which was launched and founded in March of 2019 by director Art Laubach, according to The Denver Post.

Laubach started the association with the hopes of championing the evolution of tiny homes. Other factors that have contributed to the attentiveness of tiny homes are older adults and retirees looking to ease the way they live and the rising cost of homeownership among young adults.

“It’s a great option to be able to afford your own home,” said Laubach. “Some of the young folks today that come out of college with thousands in debt, they simply can’t afford to buy a traditional home.”
