SPC to Present St. Pete Tiny Home Festival April 7-8

If you’re thinking of downsizing your living space, check out the St. Petersburg Tiny Home Festival on April 7 & 8 and see if you could live in a space less than 300 feet.

Organized by LocalShops1 and Ivy Group Consultants, the two-day event from 10am – 6pm at the SPC Allstate Center will shed light on the benefits of tiny home living from those who actually live it!

Although builders will be in attendance along with an assortment of tiny homes, this expo will not be treated like a home show. Instead, private tiny-homeowners will show off their homes while sharing reasons for choosing the tiny life. Tiny living appeals to people of all ages and demographics, from millennials who want financial freedom and not tied down to a mortgage to seniors who want to downsize and live closer to family.

The festival will also feature DIY workshops and seminars with more than 20 experts who will host panel discussions regarding building and zoning requirements and how to adjust to the dramatic lifestyle change. Visitors will also have the chance to check out booths from artists, crafters, mobile boutiques, food trucks and small businesses specializing in tiny-home decor and other services.

Tickets cost $15 per day or $25 for the entire weekend if purchased by March 30; $20 per day or $30 for the entire weekend if purchased by April 6 or at the door. Children 10 and under will be admitted free if accompanied by an adult. No pets allowed except for service dogs.

The festival is supported and sponsored by: St. Pete Eco-Village, Tampa Bay Tiny Homes, Historic Shed, Tiny House Advisor, AARP, the Skyway Marina District and St. Pete EcoVillage.
