National Tiny House Jamboree

Tiny House Festival finds Big Venue   – The National Tiny House Jamboree, a festival aimed to encourage the spirit of the tiny house movement, finds a new home on the United States Airforce Academy campus.  

[Colorado Springs, CO] – The first National Tiny House Jamboree took place in Colorado Springs, CO on a sunny summer weekend in 2015. Tiny house builders arranged multiple 200 square foot houses in a semi circle on an open meadow while sustainable living vendors set up around them.

Event organizers estimated that 10,000 people would come through the gates over a three day period. What actually happened blew everyone away. The 'tiny' event received an estimated 40,000 people and the city of Colorado Springs received tiny house enthusiasts from all 50 states and 7 countries.

Seemingly destined to become an annual event, the second National Tiny House Jamboree will again be held in Colorado Springs, this time hosted by one of the city’s finest institutions, The United States Airforce Academy. “We are beyond excited to be holding our tiny house festival on the beautiful grounds of The United States Airforce Academy,” said Coles Whalen, President of The National Tiny House Jamboree. “With plenty of space to display tiny homes, easy access for attendees of all ages, and a Rocky Mountain backdrop, the place and the purpose are a perfect fit.”

The National Tiny House Jamboree will feature over 50 tiny houses open for tours, a packed lineup of expert speakers, and educational workshops featuring tiny house technical skills. Some of the Airforce Academy’s greatest landmarks will also be open for viewing including the world famous cadet chapel and Falcon Stadium.

“We look forward to partnering with a festival that brings such a diverse crowd onto our campus” said Nick Kiger, Associate AD, AFAAC Events and Services.

Tickets for the Tiny House Jamboree are on sale through the event’s website and will also be available for purchase at the event.
