You know it’s summer when Lego BrickFair 2014 comes around to Northern Virginia! This is one of my family’s favorite events, and it’s something to see (and do) if you’re a Lego fan. BrickFair is a huge Lego expo put on by AFOLs (Adult Fans of Lego) from all over the country, and Chantilly, Virginia, is one of the four locations they do every year. If you’re in other parts of the country, try to visit BrickFair 2014 this November in New Jersey, next January in Alabama, or next May in New Hampshire.
At BrickFair, you’ll find displays by all ages and great art you can’t believe is made of Lego. I’ve seen black & white portrait mosaics and all kinds of amazing things! There’s also an Exhibitor area, where you can find Lego sets galore, Lego jewelry, clothing, and more. Last year, we played Bingo for Lego prizes, spent hours in the large Lego room–where you can sit and play with all kinds of pieces you might not have at home, and watched demonstration of Lego robotics and crazy contraptions.
BrickFair Virginia is Saturday & Sunday, August 2nd and 3rd, from 11am-4pm at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, VA. Tickets are $12/person at the door or you can purchase ahead online. Kids 3 and under are FREE. Keep in mind that strollers are not permitted. It can be crowded, but it’s a lot of fun!
