“TexLUG” stands for Texas LEGO(R) User Group. We are a varied group of people who enjoy building, displaying, and collecting all things LEGO. While we are based in Houston and its surrounding areas, there are other branches of TexLUG in Austin, San Antonio, and Dallas/Ft. Worth. In addition, Texas Brick Railroad is a state-wide LUG with a focus on trains.
In July 2016 TexLUG-Houston hosted Brick Fiesta: a non-profit, family-friendly convention celebrating LEGO in Texas. Brick Fiesta 2017 was held in Mesquite, Texas (near Dallas) Brick Fiesta 2018 will be held in San Antonio. For more information, check back here or visit BrickFiesta.com.
What does TexLUG-Houston do?
Throughout the year TexLUG-Houston has a variety of activities. These may include setting up a display at a museum or other event; building a custom item for a charity auction; or spending time building with children in a hospital. We also meet about once a month to talk LEGO, swap parts, build things, and generally have a good time. Meetings may take place at a member’s home, a restaurant, a mall, or any other place that won’t mind a group of adults talking about a highly sophisticated interlocking brick system.
Can I join TexLUG-Houston?
Of course! TexLUG-Houston is open to anyone who enjoys LEGO products. All you need to do is come to a meeting or event and introduce yourself. We are family-friendly, but we do ask that anyone under 18 bring an adult with them to participate in any of our activities.
