Whether you are a curious tiny house bystander, a passionate advocate, or a family seeking inspiration, there is something for everyone at the Carolina Tiny House Festival. Attendees can embark on tiny house tours, engage in thought-provoking conversations, and participate in educational workshops.

In a world where the cost of living continues to rise, the dream of owning a home can seem increasingly out of reach for many. However, a small but mighty movement is gaining traction, offering a glimpse into a more accessible future of housing.

  • Enter the Carolina Tiny House Festival, an event poised to revolutionize perceptions of homeownership and affordability.

Scheduled for April 13-14, 2024, at Charlotte Motor Speedway, the Carolina Tiny House Festival is not just another gathering. It’s a celebration of innovation and a platform for change. Hosted by Tiny House Big Movement, a 501(c)3 nonprofit based in Concord, NC, this festival promises to be more than just a weekend event—it’s an invitation to rethink housing as we know it.

On April 12th, the event kicks off with the Industry Association Workshop, titled “Creativity in Action: Innovative Solutions for Affordable Housing.” Led by Dan Fitzpatrick, President of the Tiny House Industry Association and Director of Government Relations for the American Tiny House Association, this workshop promises to be enlightening.

From discussions on legalizing tiny homes to insights from industry panelists, attendees will gain valuable perspectives on addressing the housing affordability crisis. The participation of Concord Mayor Bill Dusch further underscores the importance of local leadership in championing change.

  • By fostering collaboration between policymakers and the tiny house community, the workshop aims to explore actionable solutions and pave the way for more inclusive housing policies.

At its core, the Carolina Tiny House Festival is a call to action. It’s a rallying cry for builders, designers, and housing advocates to unite in pursuit of a common goal: making housing diverse, accessible, and affordable for everyone.

  • As Kim DeLaney, Executive Director of Tiny House Big Movement, eloquently puts it, “We see this as an avenue for change.”

Through exhibits, workshops, and networking opportunities, the festival serves as a platform for showcasing innovative solutions and fostering meaningful connections. It’s not just about admiring tiny homes; it’s about envisioning a future where housing is more than just a roof over our heads—it’s a reflection of our values and aspirations.

In a world where the concept of home is evolving, the Carolina Tiny House Festival offers a glimpse into a brighter, more equitable future. By bringing together diverse stakeholders and igniting conversations, this event has the power to spark real change.

So, mark your calendars, spread the word, and gather for a weekend of inspiration, education, and action. For more information and registration, visit the Carolina Tiny House Festival website.
