Annual Tiny House Festival returning to Decatur late this month
Late this month, the third annual Decatur Tiny House Festival will bring more than 20 livable tiny houses to the city for two days of tours, speakers and activities, according to a city newsletter.
Three popular contractors from last year’s festival – Bigheart Tiny House Co., Hummingbird Tiny Housing and Mustard Seed Tiny Homes – will return with new examples of tiny homes, and new contracting groups will be onsite as well.
Additionally, this year’s festival will feature new activities, including a “Tiny Travel” area and an interactive Kid’s Corner, where people from Little Shop of Stories, Atlanta Parent magazine and Stars Gymnastics will offer fun activities.
Throughout the festival, a variety of speakers will offer “mini-lectures,” where attendees can get insights into the benefits of the micro-lifestyle and learn tips on how to minimize and organize their lives. The festival will also include food trucks, vendors and bicycle parking.
The festival will take place Sept. 29 and 30 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day in downtown Decatur at 105 Electric Avenue.
Advance general admission tickets are $35 for a weekend pass, $20 for a single-day ticket and free for children 12 and younger. Early Access VIP passes are $45 and include early access to tour all the homes, a festival T-shirt, six-month membership to MicroLifeInstitute and admission for one day.

Tiny houses were made legal in Decatur in 2014, when the Unified Development Ordinance was adopted by the City Commission. The concept is one of the city’s strategies to promote housing affordability within the city limits.
