Brick Fest Live, the largest touring LEGO show in the United States, features mind-blowing creations made entirely of this timeless toy, challenge and build areas, and the largest LEGO vendor market anywhere featuring favorite sets, custom creations and ultra-rare items. Founded and produced by a pair of Dadpreneurs inspired by their own children’s love of LEGO, Brick Fest Live! allows families to enjoy jaw-dropping creations from all over the world.

“Brick Fest Live! was created to 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! founder Chad Collins. “At Brick Fest Live!, families build together to accomplish their goals and find creative solutions—all while inspiring the next generation of artists, engineers and leaders.”
