Brick Fiesta 2018

In early July about 20 members of TexLUG-Houston spent a long weekend attending Brick Fiesta 2018 in San Antonio, Texas.  Many of the members brought custom models they had built with LEGO® bricks.  Models were judged in about 20 categories by convention attendees and public visitors.  At least eight awards were given to TexLUG-Houston members.

Convention attendees also participated in a variety of build contests and games.  There were presentations on subjects such as lighting and stop-motion animation.  Many vendors were onsite to provide fans with opportunities to purchase unique or rare parts, sets, minifigures, t-shirts, and other gear.

Brick Fiesta is an annual event described as “A Celebration of LEGO® in Texas” – a fan convention with public exhibition.  It rotates through four major cities in the state;  in 2019, Brick Fiesta will be held in Austin.  www.brickfiesta.com

Brick Fiesta was July 7-10, 2016, at the Westin Galleria, Houston, Texas.  A non-profit, family-friendly convention celebrating LEGO(R) in Texas!

We had a large turnout of LEGO fans and builders from Houston, other parts of Texas, even the Pacific Northwest and Canada!  There were over 200 unique LEGO models, plus a large train/city layout by Texas Brick Railroad.

Thanks to our fantastic guest speaker, Alice Finch, for an entertaining presentation.  Also thanks to Kevin Hinkle and Paul Striefler, representatives from The LEGO Group, who attended the show and provided many insightful comments.

Next year’s Brick Fiesta will be in the Dallas / Fort Worth area, dates to be determined.  Check back here, or follow the Brick Fiesta website, for more information.
