About the Kiddies

Is there an age limit?

Public visitors of all ages are welcome.

Noobs and Newbies

Can I bring something I built?

Public visitors should not bring LEGO.  Models on display were created by registered exhibitors.


What's an "AFOL?"

Pronounced "ay-fole," AFOL is an Adult Fan Of LEGO.  BrickFair is run by AFOLs, for AFOLs.

What's a "MOC?"

Pronounced "mock," a MOC is My Own Creation.  Anything we build which isn't an official LEGO company design, regardless of size or success, is a MOC.  The key BrickFair feature is enjoying each others' MOCs.

And The Rest...

Can I buy LEGO there?

Absolutely!  Vendors will be there selling all sorts of LEGO stuff.

Does BrickFair travel to other cities?

BrickFair comes just a few times each year.

See for other LEGO events in North America.  Many are similar, but they are unique organizations run by different AFOLs.  We cannot answer questions about them.  We are proud of BrickFair, but if money or time is an issue we recommend visiting the event closest to you.

No strollers.

Strollers are not permitted in the expo.

Yes cameras.

Photography is encouraged!  Take pictures of anything and everything!

How long is the show?

Enjoy BrickFair at your own pace.  We suggest allowing yourself 90 minutes minimum to see everything.

How long is the line?

The line grows long but moves fast.  Maximum wait is approximately 25 minutes.

We do not recommend lining up early; this does not seem to save any time.  That is, the time saved in a long line is equally spent standing around before the doors open; mathematically, lining up early doesn't save you anything.

Are credit cards accepted?

BrickFair accepts cash, checks and credit cards.  Most vendors accept credit cards.

An ATM machine is on-site.  We cannot guarantee it is working or loaded.

What else is for sale at BrickFair?

You'll need $10.00 for parking, the $14 entrance fee, and money for LEGO vendors and food.

Wear comfortable shoes.

BrickFair AL 2019 is hosted at the Birmingham Jefferson Convention Complex with all concrete floors.

Is food nearby?

The BJCC East Hall has an on-site cafeteria.

Can I bring food?

Sorry, food may not be brought into BrickFair.

Is BrickFair wheelchair accessible?

Yes, all 80,000 square feet of BrickFair AL 2019 is on one floor, and our aisles are easily navigable.

What hotel?

See our exhibitors' travel page.

Can BrickFair come to our little event?

Short answer: BrickFair does not participate in events other than our annual festivals.

Can I donate LEGO to you?
