Get ready LEGO fans.
Newcastle’s longest-running festival celebrating the iconic little yellow brick is back again for 2021
That’s right, Newcastle Brickfest will run for two days – Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 July at Newcastle Jockey Club and there will be more LEGO-related fun than you can poke a brick at!
The community event, the brainchild of Rainbow Bricks, promises to be a LEGO-lover’s paradise in 2021, with more than TWO HUNDRED tables of displays for you to park your peepers on!
There’ll be something for everyone, too – from Disney princesses to Star Wars , and from tiny creations to a monster Space Shuttle. The traditional city layout will also make a return and if you’ve seen it, you already know it’s BIG!
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.
As well as the displays, there will be tonnes of activities to sink your teeth into including appearances by cosplaying legends from Hunter Heroes and the 501st Southern Cross Garrison.
There will also be a LEGO raffle, plenty of food and drink and, of course, the chance to pick up some LEGO to take home.
The family-friendly, not for profit event supports local Newcastle charities and, over the previous sixyears, has donated $70,000 to schools and charities throughout the region.
This year, Brickfest will be supporting the John Hunter Children’s Hospital Kids Club, which raises funds to buy equipment for the hospital that is not covered by the hospital’s budget.
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 2021 Newcastle Brickfest is on from Saturday 10 July (3pm – 5pm) to Sunday 11 July (9am – 5pm) at Newcastle Jockey Club (Darling Street, Broadmeadow).
