That’s right, Newcastle Brickfest will run for two days (Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 July) at Newcastle Jockey Club and there will be more LEGO-related fun than you can poke a brick at!

The community event, created by local volunteer LEGO fans will see some of the best creations and collections from across the state,

The young and young at heart are sure to be impressed and inspired and budding builders will have the chance to chat with exhibitors to ask questions about their magnificent displays.

There will also be a literal ton of LEGO fun to be had including speed build, colouring-in and find the mini-figure competitions, tower building, a build area, remote control trackers, a LEGO raffle and more.

This year the festival will also be visited by cosplayers from the Hunter Heroes and the Saurus Squad.

The family-friendly, not for profit event supports local Newcastle charities and, over the previous five years, has donated $50,000 to schools and charities throughout the region.

The event will also feature staggered start times and limits per start time to ensure everyone gets to experience what this popular festival has to offer.

The 2019 Newcastle Brickfest is on from Saturday 13 July (2pm – 5pm) to Sunday 14 July (9am – 5pm) at Newcastle Jockey Club (Darling Street, Broadmeadow)

Tickets are $5 per person (children under two are free) and you can get them here. There will be limited tickets at the door ($8 each)
