BRIGHTON — Organizers of an upcoming event in Brighton are thinking big by thinking small.
The Colorado Tiny House Festival will return for its second year this Friday, Saturday and Sunday in Brighton. The festival has more than doubled in size from last year and will feature at least 40 unique, small living structures.
The organizers said they expect more than 20,000 people to come to the Adams County Fairgrounds — located at 9755 Henderson Road, Brighton — for the event. While the festival will have several tiny houses on show, it will also have other little living spaces, such as container homes, conversions of semi-trailers and school buses and vans, teardrop trailers, yurts and more. Attendees can also enjoy speaker presentations, hands-on workshops, a product and service marketplace, and food and drinks.
Tiny living spaces have become popular in the past few decades as a way to simplify life, minimize amount of possessions and live greener.
The festival begins Friday at noon and runs until 6 p.m., and opens again Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Single-day tickets are $15 at the box office or $10 online, per adult. Children under the age of 12 get in for free.
