Calling all LEGO enthusiasts! BrickFair, the nation’s largest annual LEGO fan festival, is returning to the area in August, and it’s bigger and better than ever. Filling 130,000 square feet of space, this year’s event will accommodate even more amazing exhibits, vendors, games, and fun. And I have three Family 4-Packs of tickets up for grabs for a few lucky KFDC readers!

With a “Myths & Legends” theme, BrickFair 2016 will bring together LEGO fans from across the country to showcase amazing brick constructions. Over 800 exhibitors will display their designs, from tiny creations to towering cityscapes. There will also be nearly 100 tables of vendors selling all things LEGO — T-shirts, hats, mini figures, models, and more.

It’s not all just looking and buying. Visitors can get hands on in the Stay & Play Area chock full of bricks, so you can build and get creative. There will also be games, bouncy fun, and lots of photo ops. And in keeping with the theme, you can try to spot mythical creatures and characters among the LEGO displays.

This will all take place at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, VA, August 6-7 from 10:30am – 4pm both days. Tickets are $15/ages 4 and up, free for ages 3 and under.

GIVEAWAY: For a chance to win one of the Family 4-Packs of tickets, simply leave a comment below telling me your favorite way or place to stay cool during these hot summer days. To be eligible, you should subscribe to the KFDC blog (see sign-up to the left) and follow KidFriendly DC on Facebook. This giveaway will run through Sunday, July 24, then the winners will be drawn at random and notified shortly thereafter. Good luck!
