Private Convention is On in VA

Our plan for BF/VA which will meet state restrictions beginning May 15:
- private convention is on.
- up to 1,000 people max.
- big hall only.
- same length, same days.

Public days July 31 - August 1 are currently on hold.

We hope state restrictions will loosen as convention-time draws near.  We hope for a public show.  At least we can plan for our own exhibitor entertainment and be that much more prepared when/if the public show is permitted.

We anticipate fewer than 1,000 exhibitors.  In 2019 we had 1,068 but due to COVID concerns this year shrinkage can be expected.  So the 1,000-person state imposed limit (come May 15) should not affect this show.  If interest grows and restrictions allow then we may go public and may expand into the small hall.

Refunds are always available upon request.    But we recommend waiting.  We're still hopeful for a public offering.  It is up to the state, the CDC, and the general health of the American people.

When/if the public option becomes available we may need to try something new to make best use of limited resources.  We may employ 3-hour "sessions" instead of full day tickets.  Or we may open a Friday session.  We're still brainstorming.

Public tickets for Virginia have been removed from our website until a public show can be assured.

Our fingers are crossed!  We're hopeful that next month brings good news for a public show.

Virginia Still On (So Far)

BrickFair Virginia is still green-lit, as far as we know.  We're preparing as if it's happening.  We are staying in touch with the Dulles Expo Center to ensure our safety expectations align with venue rules and state and federal mandates.  But, like last year, we are all watching and waiting as the world changes around us.  So we don't expect firm answers from the venue.  Therefore we can't give you one just yet.

The vaccine progress seems promising!

We plan to make final announcement, Yes or No, by May 1.

We'll keep working towards the show and you please keep your fingers crossed!

Virginia 2021, Our Next Best Hope

We know people miss the LEGO shows because they tell us in email.  Each round of BrickFair e-blast spurs replies and shared feelings.  The world keeps turning with or without us.  We who live for the convention circuit wait and see, wait and wonder.

Here at BrickFair we are playing a game called Chase The Date where each season brings another show rescheduled and another round of "what dates are available in 202X?" questions.  Venues have fewer staff working fewer hours, so communication slowly chugs along.  We are maintaining a parade of revolving, re-dated contracts and are thankful that our new dates have been agreeable.

BrickFair's lack of spam (we like to think) is because we, like you, are in hibernation.  Here at BrickFair everything moves slower these days.  But we're still working, still prepping for the next show.

We look forward to seeing everyone again as soon as possible - as soon as it is safe.
