A big event involving tiny houses is coming to Richmond this fall.

The Tiny LIVING Festival California is set to bring tiny homes, vintage campers, con­verted buses (skoolies), tear­drop trailers and more, along with live music and all sorts of family-friendly activities to the Richmond Art Center Park­ing Area, 2540 Barrett Ave., on Oct. 5-6.

The festival will include live music and entertainment, a kids area that includes fun activities with Circus for Pur­pose, speakers, presentations and notable members of the tiny house community.

The event will be open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Admis­sion is $20 and free for chil­dren, military, law enforcement and firefighters.

Founded by John and Fin Kernohan, the festival serves two main purposes: to raise awareness about the tiny house movement, and to help raise funds for good causes in com­munities where the festivals occur.

This is the 14th tiny house event by the United Tiny House Association that has thus far given over $600,000 in proceeds to over 70 charities, nonprofits and other causes.

For the Richmond festival, the United Tiny House As­sociation has partnered with Richmond-based Tentmakers Inc., a nonprofit that creates innovative affordable housing solutions in the Bay Area.

For more than seven years, the Kernohans have been liv­ing in a 304-square-foot, off-grid home and travel the coun­try their towable 148-square -foot tiny house, called “Tiny Firehouse — Station No. 9,” which is a tribute to firefighters and emergency responders and supports fire station fundrais­ing.
