5th Annual Brickies Creation Festival™

It was a gorgeous day for LEGO®! On Saturday, July 22, 2023, LEGO® artists and enthusiasts descended upon Old Town Square for the 5th Annual Brickies Creation Festival™.

This year, 21 teams competing in three different categories (Child, Family and Adult) worked the entire day to build a creation that adhered to our “Transportation” theme. The creations were topnotch this year and continue to get better and better as the bar gets raised higher and higher. Thanks to our participants for bringing their “A” game!

But that’s not all…
• Thanks to DENLUG and COWLUG for putting on an incredible display of LEGO® artistry. Truly amazing!
• We crowned multiple winners throughout the day in our Scoop & Sculpt event and had unbelievable winning times in our Beat the Clock event.
• The Bionicles crew came out and expanded our LEGO® knowledge with fun and exciting displays and interaction.
• Our inaugural Brickies™ Soapbox derby saw brothers squaring off against one another and lots of engineering fun.
Chipper Booth’s vintage photo booth was a pure joy!
• Our Kids’ Building Zone was an absolute, lovely, LEGO® mess!
• And we gave away $1,000 in LEGO® sets throughout the day thanks to the Clothes Pony and Dandelion Toys.
Thanks to everyone who came out and enjoyed the day and supported our event!

Registration will open on May 1, 2024. Make sure you mark your calendars!
