Tiny House

The world's largest tiny house event is coming to Arlington! The Tiny House - Simple Living Jamboree, set for October 27-29 at the Arlington Convention Center, will play host to the latest and greatest in tiny houses, simple living, and sustainability trends.

Our friends over at the Arlington Convention - Visitors Bureau have compiled these four reasons you don't want to miss it:

Tour 65-plus tiny living structures 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 (do-it-yourself) 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.

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.

Have the chance to work with Zack Giffin ashe 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.

Fun for the whole family!
