  • CAN I GET A REFUND DUE TO WEATHER?
    We have been hit with extreme weather during past Tiny House Shows, continued through it all and had a great time to boot. We are a show by adventurers, for adventurers. We do not give refunds due to weather*—it does not stop the show. (*For emergency personnel whose jobs require them to report to duty, please contact us as soon as you are deployed.)
  • WHAT IS THE REFUND POLICY?
    Refund And Transfer Policy: We have to strictly adhere to our refund policy in order to organize the highest quality event and to run our business; we’re sure you understand. All tickets are refundable prior to 60-days out from the opening day of each event. After that open refund period has closed, all tickets are non-refundable and sales are final. If in need of canceling your registration at this time, you will be issued a credit via coupon code for use towards a registration/merchandise of a future event. There are NO refunds if you cannot attend. Tickets will NOT be refunded due to inclement weather. Events take place rain or shine. Attendee to Attendee ticket transfers: It is the responsibility of the person currently registered for Tiny House Show to find someone to acquire their ticket. You may want to visit the Facebook Event Page to find someone to take your spot, or to find a ticket that is being offered for transfer. AMP Expo will not manage a waitlist, nor will we act as “match-maker” to help anyone find a ticket. All Weekend and Day Pass tickets purchased by one person will display that name only. No need to transfer a ticket to a spouse or someone else, for check in purposes. The transfer process will only prompt them to purchase the ticket from you. Tickets may be scanned in with the same name one at a time at the gate. Event cancellation or postponement: If the event is postponed, attendees that don’t request a refund or transfer to another event will be automatically transferred to the postponed dates. If the event is canceled, attendees will be offered refund or transfer options at the time of cancellation. We reserve the right to change this policy at any time.
  • CAN I BRING MY KIDS?
    Yes! We encourage families to attend Tiny House Shows and make improvements to kids programs every year. Many of our workshops, demos, and programs are run by kids for kids and families interested in Going Tiny. We always look for new classes to add, taught by kids, so if your child has any overland/outdoor experience and is interested in sharing with their knowledge other children, please contact us for more information on our instructor program. Kids 13 and under are free when accompanying an adult who has purchased any pass.
  • CAN I BRING MY PETS?
    Yes! We try to be pet-friendly, however, we have some rules: Dogs must be leashed, quiet, and cleaned-up-after at all times, this includes within the VENUE. NO “zip” leashes (the retractable kind); this is so dogs do not lunge unexpectedly at kids or other dogs. A shock collar only does NOT suffice in replacement of a leash. A leash is required in case of emergency and the dog must be restrained. Aggressive dogs will be banned, this includes fighting other dogs, barking, or showing antisocial behavior. Do NOT leave any pet (or child!) in a vehicle at any time—it will be hotter than you think, and it is fatal.
