Just a quick reminder: Jason and Stephen will be at the Philly Brick Fest towards the weekend, from April 28 to May 1 at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center, 100 Station Ave., Oaks, Pennsylvania. They’ll be having another Brick Show Experience where you can have a chance to meet these YouTube legends in person. For those who were able to plan ahead, we hope that you were able to take advantage of the early registration that the organizers arranged as early as last year by Brick Fest founder Chad Collins.
Don’t worry though if you did not make it for the early registration since tickets are still available for purchase online. However, for those intending to stretch their luck for a Brick Fest Live VIP Weekend Pass, you might be a little disappointed since tickets for this are all sold out. Tickets are priced between $19 to $22 per person, while children 2 years old and below are free. Nevertheless, there are still tons of attractions and hands-on activities that will surely make your trip worthwhile. With over a million LEGO bricks on display and ready for play, this is one LEGO fan event that you don’t want to miss. Click here to purchase tickets.

We’re happy to say that this will be the largest event we’ve ever produced… It’s going to have the most fanfare, it’s going to have the most LEGO under one roof that you’ll ever see. The one great thing that makes these Brick Fest Live events unique is that they’re events that are created by fans of LEGO for fans of LEGO. You’re going to see the largest variety of LEGO under one roof, guaranteed, and you’re going to be able to experience it in ways that are impossible to do on your own.
