Rainbow Bricks Presents
NEWCASTLE BRICKFEST 2019
A LEGO Fan Event

Rainbow Bricks is excited to be returning again in 2019!

Newcastle Brickfest is Newcastle's first and longest running LEGO Fan event. It’s a community event, created by local volunteer LEGO fans, for LEGO Fans of all ages, showcasing LEGO creations and collections from across NSW.

Once again we are supporting Hunter Schools and Charities with the proceeds from this family friend, community event.

Original creations and displays of LEGO themes will impress and inspire kids of all ages. Interact with the exhibitors, ask them about their displays and LEGO in general. Plus we will have the always popular City Layout back again with working trains. As well as, all the displays, there will be lots of activities for everyone to enjoy on the day.

This year we have added Saturday afternoon sessions for those of you who can’t make it on the Sunday.

We are also being joined by our Cosplaying friends from the Hunter Heroes, the Saurus Squad and Star Wars Characters!

This is a family friend, not for profit event, which has been supporting Newcastle charities. Over the previous 5 years we have been able to donated $50,000 to schools and charities Newcastle Brickfest has supported.

LEGO Activities:

Build Area - An area for the kids to build after being inspired by the exhibitors creations.

Speed Builds - This popular competition returns and will run each hour. You have just 3 minutes and a random selection of parts to build something. What will you create?

Tower Building - Help us build a huge tower with LEGO and LEGO Train Track.
