Brick Fest Live Ticket Giveaway!!!

Nation’s #1 LEGO® Event Returns to Home Town of Philadelphia

with New Attractions

 at Brick Fest Live! April 21-22





Brick Fest Live! will offer four football fields of LEGO to more than 25,000 super fans at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center April 21-22, 2018. Fun Things is giving away a Family 4-Pack of tickets to the Brick Fest Live! Simply complete this GIVEAWAY FORM and ONE winner will be selected by random.org on April 15th. 

Before there was Legoland in Plymouth Meeting, there was the region’s first major LEGO event created for local LEGO fans and their families -- all inspired by a seven-year-old girl from Bucks County. Now Brick Fest Live!, the nation’s #1 LEGO event and the largest touring LEGO show in the U.S., is returning home for its flagship Philadelphia show with more attractions than ever that inspire, educate and entertain. Watch the video here.

Fresh off an exhibition at the New York Hall of Science, Brick Fest Live! will offer four football fields of LEGO to more than 25,000 super fans at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center April 21-22, 2018.

“Brick Fest Live! began with my daughter Jordyn, who asked me to help her create a YouTube channel devoted to the LEGO creations we were building together back in 2012,” says Brick Fest Live! founder Chad Collins, a Northeast Philadelphia native who resides with his family in Bucks County. “After posting nearly 500 videos and accumulating more than 11 million video views, we realized our community would enjoy meeting in person. Surprisingly, the closest LEGO event was several states away, so we created Brick Fest Live! to bring everybody together.”

“Today we tour the nation and increase awareness that science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are all in play when it comes to LEGO and other construction toys,” says Brick Fest Live! show producer Gabe Young. “At Brick Fest Live!, families build together to accomplish their goals and find creative solutions. In the process, they’re inspiring the next generation of artists, engineers and architects.”

Families will enjoy new attractions as well as fan favorites (including local landmarks made entirely of LEGO), as they build with millions of LEGO bricks and walk among life-sized LEGO models.

  • Visit our largest Glow City ever, an entire city made of glowing LEGO brick!
  • Add to new, sprawling LEGO cities and make them your own at Inspiration Stations stretching from one end of the convention hall to the other.
