Nation's Largest Tiny House Event Coming To Chattanooga

Sunday, July 16, 2017

The United Tiny House Association, organizer of the for-charity Tiny House Festivals and the Nation’s largest tiny house event held in Florida, is bringing its for-charity Tiny House Festival to Chattanooga.

The 2017 Tennessee Tiny House Festival is coming to Audubon Acres Sept. 8-10.

The United Tiny House Association will be bringing dozens of tiny houses and micro homes, television celebrities, national and world recognized leaders from the tiny house community, Friday and Saturday night-time concerts and fire performers, day-time live entertainment, continuous free movie showings, dozens of workshops and presentations, a free School Field Trip Session for students on Friday from 9 a.

m.-2 p.m., a free for everyone session Friday evening from 5-8 p.m., and fundraising for various charities.

United Tiny House Association founders, John and Fin Kernohan, and their board, have organized Tiny House Festivals in different states for the past two years as a means of promoting awareness of the tiny house movement and as a source of philanthropy to support great causes and charities in the communities and states where their events are held, officials said.

Recently, the United Tiny House Association fully funded the building of a tiny house for a homeless veteran and his wife from the proceeds of their 2nd Annual Georgia Tiny House Festival, as well as being a source of fundraising for dozens of non-profits, charitable organizations, and other causes during its 2nd Annual Georgia and 2017 New Jersey Tiny House Festivals.

John Kernohan, chairman and founder of the for-charity Tiny House Festivals, said, “Our organization and our board of directors are looking forward to once again having our event provide awareness of the global tiny house community, and to continue in our efforts of being a positive influence in the economic growth in the local communities where we host our Tiny House Festivals; and in being a source of fund raising for local charities and other non-profit organizations.”

The Kernohans have lived for over five years in their 304-square-foot tiny house known as “Beloved Cabin” and are now traveling the US in their 148-square-foot tiny house, the “Tiny Firehouse - Station No. 9”, which is a tribute to firefighters, and supports fire stations and is used to promote fire prevention awareness.

Roy Exum: Why CNN Is Gonna Croak

I believe CNN (Cable News Network) has become one of the most disappointing news sources America has ever known in the last five years. The bastions of sound journalism no longer exist as the once-great organization has gone the way of liberal loathing. Its new basis-of-fact cannot be trusted and the overwhelming bias against conservatives in our nation is as morbid as it is frightening. ... (click for more)
