Map Updated Again

If you're particularly eager to keep up with the development of BrickFair, the map is growing at www.BrickFair.com/Map/.

ConnLUG and Brikwars have been added, as well as a few other MOCs.

I apologize for not fitting all exhibitors into one room together.  We're working to squeeze in all the fun!

Another Game Change

The Parts Draft set is #31093 Riverside Houseboat.  Purchase this set and bring it with you to the game!

Parts Draft is a game with all winners.  Try it :)  Walk-ups may also be accommodated.

World of Lights is Coming

I asked the venue about our World of Lights and how dark we could make the room.  The response: "As dark as you want."

Sweet.

Have you lighted your MOCs yet?!

Game Changes

Sign up for games!  Last call!  Registered exhibitors sign up at www.BrickFair.com/Game/.

Note the following last-minute changes:

Mindstorms Sumo and Tug-of-War have been dropped due to lack of interest (and lack of space for a competition ring).  Go Fish Tournament has been dropped as there's no space for the Go Fish tent.

Blind Builds AFOL & TFOL have been reshaped into Blind Builds 1 & 2.  If you were already signed up for one, now you're now signed up for both.

Tiger Plastics Open has been duplicated.  If you were already signed up for Tiger Plastics Open, now you're signed up for both Tiger Plastics Open 1 & 2.

Cornhole Tournament has been duplicated as well.  Same deal as above.

You can still sign up!  As long as there are empty seats.

BrickFair Returns to New Jersey

Hey kids.  BrickFair is coming to the Meadowlands Expo Center in Secaucus, NJ this Halloween weekend!

Moreover, the Meadowlands will see us return again next year for Halloween 2020.  That show is not yet listed on our website so as not to confuse ticket sales.

We'll see you in two weeks and we'll see you again next year :)

Free Shipping to BrickFair

Eight Bricklink stores are offering free shipping on orders to BrickFair NJ.  Many are also offering discounts of 10% on orders.

So if you're looking for last-minute parts, why worry about them arriving to you in time?  Have them hand-delivered at BrickFair!

Free Public Ticket

Reminder to all, and news to some first-timers, when you register to exhibit ($80) your goodie bag will include one free public ticket ($15 value).  So if you're exhibiting and expecting friends or family to visit you during the weekend, you'll have a free public to give out - one ticket in each goodie bag :)

Volunteer

Help BrickFair run smoothly and make the show more fun for everyone!  See www.BrickFair.com/Volunteer/ for volunteering vacancies.

Helpers can immediately click themselves into a slot, commit to as little as 1 hour of work, and earn a BrickFair t-shirt :)

Game hosting earns you $35 in LEGO and is a great way to mingle with your fellow exhibitors!  Contact Todd.

Theme Leaders commit to multiple days of directing other exhibitors in setting up, and earn cash and LEGO.  Contact Todd.

We need one good MINDSTORMS builder to be Theme Leader and game host to our MINDSTORM games - Sumo and Tug-of-War - for the public to watch.  Without the right volunteer we'll have to remove these games from the schedule.  The ideal person has already built their own robot(s) for competition.

To work for pay as cashier or ticket-taker please Contact Todd.

LEGO Store & Airport Updated

Following input from fans we've updated the recommended airport to Newark and the recommended nearby LEGO store to Jersey Gardens.  The store is further than New York's store, but traffic makes it the same travel-time from the expo hall.

We'll see at The Meadowlands this Halloween!

Dec 2nd 2018

New Jersey Returns

BrickFair New Jersey returns next year, the weekend immediately after Halloween!  That means our costume contest returns too!

Next year we'll be at the Meadowlands Expo Center in Secaucus, NJ!

While Virginia (summer) and Alabama (winter) shall remain permanent BrickFair fixtures, expect to see the see our spring and autumn shows explore new cities and states in 2020.

We hope you can all join us next year!
