Big Fun at Tiny House

Get ready to explore more than 60 tiny living structures, from yurts to bus conversions, learn from the experts and find unique simple living products at the Tiny House - Simple Living Jamboree this weekend at the Arlington Convention Center.

Tickets are still available for the world's largest tiny house event, which runs from Friday, October 27 to Sunday, October 29. Tiny house owners, enthusiasts and curiosity seekers will gather to attend workshops, meet with influential members of the tiny house community, and celebrate the movement.

The event, organized by Reed Exhibitions, will also feature entertainment, food trucks, a local Texas vendor fair, hands-on workshops for children and more all in a family-friendly environment.

Tiny House - Simple Living Jamboree, the world's largest tiny house and simple living gathering in the world, will also collaborate with Operation Tiny Home, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that assists people struggling with severe housing instability. The collaboration will support Operation Tiny Home's "Building a Better Future Program"which provides low-income veteran participants with the opportunity to learn carpentry skills, develop confidence, and create a supportive community while building a tiny home for a homeless peer.

The Tiny House - Simple Living Jamboree will be raising money for the program through a workshop hosted by Zack Giffin of Tiny House Nation. In exchange for a contribution, attendees will have the opportunity to work alongside and learn from Giffin as he completes the interior of a tiny home for a veteran in need. Attendees can also add a donation to Operation Tiny Home when purchasing tickets to the Jamboree. In addition, Reed Exhibitions will be making a corporate donation to the program.

Tickets for the Tiny House - Simple Living Jamboree can be purchased online at www.tinyhousejamboree.com. Kids ages 12 and under can get in free.
