TinyFest Events is back with its second annual TinyFest California. Event organizer, Renee McLaughlin is bringing it to the San Diego metro area, in part inspired by the extensive local tiny house advocacy efforts. With that, the intent of this tiny living festival is to not just inspire and entertain but to educate enthusiasts and community leaders.
Where: Del Mar Fairgrounds
Before the festivities kick-off, the local American Tiny House Association chapter is partnering with TinyFest California to host an educational Tiny House Symposium. It’s intended for city, county, and state officials residential planning and building code regulations. Speakers, including Tiny Home Industry Association President Dan Fitzpatrick, will focus on how to embrace tiny housing options by revisiting land use, zoning, building code, and other related regulations.
Importantly, these presentations come at a time when the city of San Diego is considering adding movable tiny houses to their accessory dwelling unit ordinance. Want to get the inside scoop? Attend the Tiny Home Industry Association Member Meetup on Saturday evening after the event closes for the day. Open to current and potential members.
Following the Symposium, the doors open to the public for a fun, family-friendly weekend of tiny home tours, live entertainment, and a simple living marketplace. Additionally, participants can enjoy presentations from a wide range of personalities and experts across the tiny house movement. At the top of the bill is John Weisbarth, Tiny House Nation cohost!
This year TinyFest California is also introducing the Tiny Living 101 Series. It features several in-depth workshops to “help you dive deeper into a subject and move confidently toward your tiny living goals.” Topics including van conversions, bus build-outs, and tiny home solar energy.
During the weekend, tour over 40 tiny homes! There’s something for every small space lover. On display, you’ll find tiny houses on wheels, park models, van conversions, and skoolies (aka school bus conversions).
