The Festival of Little Houses, which will be held Sept. 23 to 25 along the banks of the American River in Colma, is being hosted by Art Beast Studio, a drop-in arts exploration space for children in midtown Sacramento. Art Beast is a program of Waking the Village, a nonprofit organization that runs Tubman House, a free transitional living program for homeless teen parents.
The September festival will include family art workshops and crafting, artisan demonstrations, story circles, music and performances and nature exploration and camping, an Art Beast news release states.
Participating families also will be able to create their own little house using items found in nature.
The event is a "weekend to put family, creativity, and community front and center to remind ourselves of the possibilities of all three," said Bridget Alexander, festival organizer and co-founding director of Art Beast, in a written statement.
The event will be held from 4 p.m. Sept. 24 until 4 p.m. Sept. 25. If purchased before Sept. 1, daily tickets for adults are $25 or $50 for the weekend. Tickets for children 12 years old and younger are $10 for one day or $15 for the weekend. Weekend tickets include camping. Tent rentals will be available and food will be available for purchase, the release states.
Ticket prices increase by $5 after Sept. 1.
