BrickFair Here We Come!

on August 2, 2012

This year we will be attending the BrickFair, held at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, Va, as a Vendor.  Come on down and stop by to say Hello to Ms. Vanessa and a few of our teachers in vendor area at the back left of the Expo Center.  Traditionally the BrickFair is for ages 13 and up to share their MOC’s (My Own Creations).  There is some pretty fierce competition in some of the categories.  I already stopped by today and picked up my badge and took a sneak peak and there are some pretty stunning MOCs.  If you have a chance go by the Fire area.  This year is the only time Fire will be one of the MOC categories as Lego has released several new fire related sets this year.

There are two ways to attend the BrickFair.  One way is on Saturday and Sunday from 11:00am – 4:oopm.  You will need a ticket and they cost $10 each ticket and those under 3 get in free.  The line does go fairly quickly and it will take about 30 minutes to get in if there is a long line.  The second way to attend is to attend as an exhibitor.  You do not need to have a MOC to be an exhibitor.  The cost is much higher at $67 but it is for the entire weekend and you get to attend the opening ceremony Thursday with speakers from the Lego Group and there will be a kit unveiling.  You will also get to attend on Friday when there are several demo’s, games and speakers and it will not be nearly as crowded as it will be on Saturday and Sunday.

 

Don’t forget to stop by and see Ms. Vanessa and let her know if you found the Brikmaster kit that can be found at one of the themed tables.
