We are excited to be returning for our 10th edition of Newcastle Brickfest, A LEGO Fan Event 2023!
Newcastle Brickfest is not only Newcastle’s premier LEGO Fan event but one of Australia’s Premier LEGO Fan Events. It’s a community event created by local volunteer LEGO fans for LEGO fans of all ages, showcasing LEGO Master Builders creations across NSW and Australia.
Rainbow Bricks LEGO User Group [LUG] is excited and proud to be running Newcastle’s Priemer LEGO Fan Event, Newcastle Brickfest A LEGO Fan Event, again in 2023. This is our 10th Edition and will be our biggest yet! We have been bringing LEGO fans together since 2014, when we ran the first Newcastle Brickfest. It has been an annual highlight for LEGO Fans in the Newcastle/Hunter Valley area.
Our LEGO Master Builder’s original creations and displays of LEGO themes will impress and inspire kids of all ages. Interact with the exhibitors, and ask them questions about their exhibits and LEGO in general. We will have the always popular City Layout back again with working trains. As well as all the displays, there will be many activities for everyone to enjoy.
Our Cosplaying friends from the Hunter Heroes and Star Wars Characters are joining us! So you can grab a photo with your favourite character.
Newcastle Brickfest is a family friend, a not-for-profit event that supports Newcastle charities. Over the previous 10 years, Newcastle Brickfest has donated over $120,000 to schools and charities in the Newcastle area.
This year’s Charity Partner is the John Hunter Children’s Hospital Kids Club and their great work with the John Hunter Children’s Hospital.
