4 Reasons You Should Attend The Tiny House & Simple Living Jamboree 2017!

The world’s largest tiny house event is coming to Arlington! The Tiny House & Simple Living Jamboree is taking place October 27-29 at the Arlington Convention Center and will play host to the latest and greatest in tiny houses, simple living, and sustainability across the nation. Here are the four reasons why you don’t want to miss it:


1. Tour 65+ tiny living structures (the largest collection ever assembled) and explore 100 exhibitors and brands

You’ve seen tiny houses on your favorite TV shows – now you can see them in person! In the Outdoor Village, you’ll have the chance to tour a wide variety of designs and structures including moveable tiny houses, bus conversions, van conversions, yurts, and park models. The Jamboree will also feature a DIY Village where personal tiny homes, built by hand, will provide inspiration and a fresh perspective. The DIYers will even be on-hand to share their stories and insight!

You can also explore products and services for your home and garden in categories including eco-friendly, solar, home improvement and smart home. While you’re at it, pick up some local Texas goods from our vendor fair area.


2. Get inspired and hear amazing stories from notable tiny housers

The programming at the Jamboree is a huge weekend highlight. Attendees with common interests will gather together to listen to featured Guests talk about their experiences and even answer your questions! Some panels teach you skills—like building with salvaged materials or cooking in a tiny kitchen. Others include screenings of documentaries and behind-the- scenes sneak peeks.

3. Have the chance to work with Zack Giffin as he completes a tiny home for a veteran in need

Zack Giffin, Tiny Home Specialist and co-host of FYI’s TV Show, Tiny House Nation, will be completing work on a tiny house for a veteran in need during the Jamboree. You can immerse yourself in a day of woodworking with the guidance of Zack in this once in a lifetime opportunity.

4. Fun for the whole family!

Looking for some family friendly activities? Then the Kids Zone, sponsored by DFW Child, is the place to be. Kids can participate in hands-on workshops, arts & crafts and more. Kids 12 & under also get in for free!

Whether you’re a tiny house owner, enthusiast, or just curious about the movement, come jam with us and enjoy a weekend filled with fun, entertainment, workshops, education and more! Ready to purchase your tickets? Get them here: www.tinyhousejamboree.com/get-tickets

    I would love to attend, but we live in Maine. We would love to see a Jamboree closer to home!

      ^ Agreed. I’m on the East coast as well and don’t feel like traveling all the way to TX.

    I am ready and eager to buy my own tiny home. I live in Pa and found something I love but I am very discouraged, as there seems to be nowhere to place it. I want to live in it all the time. Help!!!!

    A lot of people who build don’t see it very important to live in what they build and it makes me wonder why. I don’t know if Zack Giffin lives in a tiny house on wheels but if he does, I’d like to see him place and find out how long he’s lived in it. Maybe get his ideas on the tiny house on wheels movement.
