Tiny House Living Festival, a traveling three day expo featuring tiny houses on wheels and other small living options, is coming to the Portland area Sept 15 – 17, 2017 at Clark County Fairgrounds.

Attendees of the expo will have a chance to tour several professionally built tiny homes on wheels and other small housing options like school bus conversions, vans, yurts, and more. Some of the homes are currently occupied by singles, couples, and even families of five! These adventurous tiny dwellers welcome attendees into their homes and give personal accounts of “real life” tiny living.

Popular local tiny houses on display include RealWood Tiny Homes, Tiny Mountain Homes, and Artisan Tiny Houses.

For those who want more than a visual experience, the expo provides presentations and workshops given by tiny house celebrities. Kent Griswold, editor of Tiny House Magazine; Jenna Spesard, popular blogger and creator of Tiny House Giant Journey; and Charles Kern, host of GAC’s show Bus Life Ever, are on the schedule for the September event.

Tickets for the event are $10 for a one day pass, $25 for a three day pass, and $9 for a one day pass for veterans or seniors. Kids 12 and under are free. For more information or tickets please visit

    My wife and I want to attend because my wife is obsessed with tiny homes. She’d like to build her own, but I don’t think she could downsize enough to live in one full time. =)

  2. Deborah Lusk September 7, 2017 at 2:51 pm #

  4. Chris September 7, 2017 at 3:35 pm #

    I would love to see the tiny houses up close. Want to get ideas for converting a tuffshed and see how a family of 5 could possibly live in one. This would be very interesting to check out and a fun adventure

  5. Emily September 7, 2017 at 4:06 pm #

  6. Tigg Orr September 7, 2017 at 4:11 pm #

    Always been a dream to live “off the grid”. The closer I get to retirement, the more a tiny house in the woods becomes the dream!

  7. Len H September 7, 2017 at 4:11 pm #

    Tiny house! For Tiny Rick!

  8. Tammy September 7, 2017 at 4:25 pm #

  11. Greg B Goode September 7, 2017 at 5:21 pm #

    Help! I have fallen and my house is too BIG!

    Boy do I need a Tinier house… One that won’t make me too poor, one that wont tie me down with chores.

    This looks like the right place to go for my family. We need to get started with ideas and plans. I hope to learn how to get off the ground, literally, and buy a tiny house.

    This looks like fun! Hope to make it!

  12. Haley September 7, 2017 at 5:46 pm #

  14. Karen Javier September 7, 2017 at 6:18 pm #

    A tiny house is in my future. I want to see some tiny houses to get an idea of exactly what I want!! This would be the perfect opportunity!!!

  15. Shelly Malone September 7, 2017 at 7:44 pm #

    I’ve wanted to live in a vardo since i was a child in Ireland and I’ve seen one of the beautiful vardos built by Zylvardo and I heard he will be presenting at the festival. I’d love to have tickets!

  18. Diane September 7, 2017 at 9:25 pm #

    My family actually lives in a tinyish house, and I would love to see some other tiny houses up close!

  19. Ilse Norman September 7, 2017 at 9:28 pm #

    I love this idea of tiny, minimalist socially responsible lliving. I think everyone should at least experience this way of living. It is a lifestyle which frees you up to pursues what’s matters most in your life. Mine, for now, is travel. So I am in active talks with Keith, one of your speakers, about converting a school into my primary residence along with six bunk beds, so I can bring friends along to experience tiny house living. So they too can experience the freedom and reconnect with themselves. And know that they are important and enough.

  20. Ilse Norman September 7, 2017 at 9:31 pm #

    My bad!! The builders name is Charles, from Colorado. We intend to meet at the tiny house festival

  21. Kay L Beauliere September 7, 2017 at 10:14 pm #

    This event looks exciting. I want to find out what all the buzz is about tiny houses! Looking forward to the festival.

  22. catie September 7, 2017 at 10:26 pm #

    my dream is to have a tiny house!

  23. Kristi Hilts September 7, 2017 at 11:45 pm #

    My husband and I have a dream of owning our own land with goats and chickens. And our ideal house would be tiny, we don’t need all the extra room if we’re spending most of our time outdoors. We are so excited to come down from Olympia to check out all the different options in the world of living small!!!!!

  24. Jake Hilts September 8, 2017 at 6:07 am #

    My wife and I plan to buy some land and a tiny home. Going to this will help inform us what house we should get and from where. We love the minimalist left now, but a house will always beat a RV.

  25. Rosemary Quinn September 8, 2017 at 8:46 am #

    Obsessed with all things tiny and would love to attend to get inspired and see what other people are doing!

  26. Jei Stirling September 8, 2017 at 9:15 am #

  27. Thomas September 8, 2017 at 9:17 am #

  28. Lisa September 8, 2017 at 11:19 am #

    I’ve been saving for a tiny house for two years now. Can’t afford the $350 workshops other places offer so this event will be amazing. Would love to win tickets but still going for sure!

  29. Reid September 8, 2017 at 11:27 am #

    As a nurse to be I have been considering a tiny house as a way to travel around the country where there are shortages. I’d love this opportunity!

  30. Megan September 8, 2017 at 12:03 pm #

    I love all things tiny!!! I would love to get tickets to see the tiny houses and to get ideas for a future tiny house.

  34. Lisa McGehee September 8, 2017 at 1:19 pm #

    My family would love to get a chance to few all different types of tiny houses. We are considering having one built for a family member that lives with us, in order to give him more room than our camper.

  35. Stacy mcdougall September 8, 2017 at 1:30 pm #

    We are buying land in the country. Need to find a tiny home to enjoy simple living. Want to find a cute cottage one.

    Married 36 years and in the same home for 30 of them; two kids now grown and two grandkids playing in the yard. We would love one of these in the middle of 5 acres of forest so we can walk hand in hand with our coffee while in between our travels. A tiny home really fits the bill !! Thanks! Dominick & Judy :)

  42. Ivy September 9, 2017 at 1:30 am #

  48. ana September 9, 2017 at 9:22 pm #

    I never seen a tiny house before!

  49. Denise Reno September 9, 2017 at 10:15 pm #

    One of these would be perfect for my 84 yr old mother to live in on my property and be closer to me so I can help her when needed. She would have her own space and still feel Independent also.

  50. Liz Burton September 10, 2017 at 4:37 pm #

    Want to take a friend who’s planning to build a tiny house…..

  51. Richard September 10, 2017 at 5:54 pm #

    I’ve been living in a 500 square foot studio in Boston, MA for 8 years. Sold it and moved to Portland a week and a half ago. I’ve been saying my dream house is a Modern Tiny Home. Perfect timing for me to go check this festival out. So excited.

  52. Kathy Rankin September 10, 2017 at 7:21 pm #

    The Tiny Home would be a cool place to work on the PC and listen
    to music alone so you “feel” like you are in the woods in your backyard
    in the city!

  53. Stacy mcdougall September 11, 2017 at 4:58 am #

  56. anne meadows September 11, 2017 at 11:40 am #

    I want to go because there are 7 billion of our species on this little planet and we need to scale back. Also, I want less to clean, and less to maintain.

  57. Angela K Abell-Crain September 11, 2017 at 11:44 am #

    When our kids graduate, we are looking to down size with a tiny home! We drove all the way to Mt. Hood and they would not let us look at them. They are all reserved for over a year…sigh. Can’t wait to see inside these! : )

  58. mary atwood September 11, 2017 at 11:47 am #

    I have the perfect spot in my backyard for a tiny home!

    Great opportunity to find a builder, needing a tiny home in your yard so my in-laws can move in without really moving in.

  78. Arial September 12, 2017 at 2:27 pm #

    Would love to go and get some inspiration! My partner and I have been doing the van life thing for three years but would love to start looking into a tiny home…. that is not on wheels. Not that’s there’s anything wrong with that. But it could be good to have the best of both worlds.

  79. Janis September 12, 2017 at 2:58 pm #

    Excited to learn about the possibilities of a tiny house. I am 4′ 10″ so perfect!

  80. Jo Ripley September 12, 2017 at 3:14 pm #

    We’re newly retired and looking for a place smaller, less upkeep, that might fit in very little space. Seems like it would be a good thing to check out.

  81. Jenn September 12, 2017 at 3:54 pm #

    Yes please!

  82. Bethany September 12, 2017 at 4:24 pm #

    This is perfect for a Single person!! Get out and enjoy the world, only keep what you need!

  83. Nadine September 12, 2017 at 6:03 pm #

    My husband and I are thinking very seriously about retiring in a tiny home – we live in just over 650 sq ft now, so we know we could make it work easily. We’d love to see all the different floor plans available and do some planning.

  84. Katrina Matthews September 12, 2017 at 6:04 pm #

    I am interested in tiny houses for environmental and social sustainability!

    I love miniatures!

  89. Harry Hackett September 13, 2017 at 9:53 am #

    We have been thinking of going to a 5th wheel full time. My wife watches all tiny house shows and really wants to build a tiny house on a 5th wheel frame. Having the both of best worlds. RVing full time and having a tiny house.

  90. Bonnie September 13, 2017 at 12:41 pm #

    We are buying land and giving serious consideration to building or purchasing a tiny home or even multiple tiny homes for our property. We believe this event would give us great Insight information and contacts towards this upcoming goal for us.

  96. JuleeaArellano September 14, 2017 at 4:56 am #

    It’s our 15th anniversary!
    Been shopping for years for our own home but pdx prices are nuts! This would be a viable, sustainable, fun and simple lifestyle. We would love to explore. Thank you for your kind offer of tickets. Blessings on the event!

  97. Jeanell Lockhart September 14, 2017 at 8:57 am #

    2,700 square feet now to 500 feet (to be a officially a tiny house), we can do it. Help us figure out the best strategy, we will go to this event with the expectations of who and how to get’er done! ;)

  98. Tammi McCallister September 14, 2017 at 10:25 am #

    I am starting a woman owned business building shelters and tiny dwellings out of shipping containers. We would like to attend this event to gather information on building materials, suppliers, and green energy options. This is the birth phase of a great business, owned by women and built by women. We have assembled a team of supportive trades women ready to break ground.

  99. Troy September 14, 2017 at 1:39 pm #

    Would like to go to the tiny house show to view compact living solutions. In addition to that I would like to lessen my foot print on this Earth. Anything we can do together to make it a better community is a worthwhile investment.

    it would be super fun to have!

  104. Michael Jones September 14, 2017 at 3:42 pm #

    I like the idea of being able to see a Tiny House up close to better get an idea of the reality of what downsizing would be like when I do make it happen! Great Idea!!

  105. John September 14, 2017 at 3:43 pm #

    Want to get one of these to put in the back yard so our friend can live in it.

  109. Roz Gorski September 14, 2017 at 4:03 pm #

    What I love about these homes is the freedom they offer to those who have them. Freedom from the banks. Freedom to move. Freedom from large carbon foot prints. Freedom from all the stuff that society says we need. I would love to win the tickets. Freedom from my wallet :)

  110. Linsey September 14, 2017 at 4:24 pm #

    Looking for a new Job. Love the Tiny House movement. My wife and I watch 3 or 4 episodes per week.

  112. Mo Grant September 14, 2017 at 9:38 pm #

    Our eighteen year old daughter is interested in having her father build her a tiny house for her college living experience. We think a tiny house would be a great fit (ha! ha!) and a life long learning experience for a young person to live sustainably! We would love to come check out some building ideas and listen to experts in the field speak. Thank you! Grant family

  113. Julie September 14, 2017 at 9:44 pm #

    OH WOW — I was just looking at the Damselfly House on another web-site that led me here! I so want to see it in ‘person’. Can’t believe that I could have missed the entire event! Are tickets still available?

    So excited for the tiny house festival! We are wanting to really think about opening a community of tiny houses which will house people with disabilities. Hoping to get some great ideas!

    We have a tiny house on our property. Would love to see what others have done.
