Is the tiny house movement here to stay? Locals can learn more about the tiny house community at the 2018 Louisiana Tiny House Festival heading to Heritage Park in Slidell on Friday, Dec. 7 to Sunday, Dec. 9.
The festival hosted by the United Tiny House Association (UTHA) will bring along some of the biggest names in the tiny house movement as speakers and presenters. If you’re looking to become a part of the tiny house community, here’s your chance.
Attendees are invited to enjoy three days of activities, workshops, lectures and tiny houses on display. Festival-goers can talk to experts about the tiny lifestyle, the legalities of living tiny, code enforcement considerations and off-grid living.
Private-owned tiny houses will be found in “Tiny House Town” and new model tiny homes will be on display, and for sale, from a number of professional builders in “Tool City.”
For the young ones that come along, there is a children’s area with hands-on activities and crafts.
Admission is free on Friday, Dec. 7 from 9 a.m. to noon for students grades K-12 and their teachers who pre-register. Free entry for the general public starts at 5 p.m. on Friday. Admission is $10 for anyone 13 and older who wishes to enter the gates before 5 p.m. on Friday.
On Saturday and Sunday, admission is $20 for a one-day pass and $35 for a 2-day admission ticket at the gate. Discount tickets available online for a limited amount of time. Gates open at 9 a.m. and close on 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.
