Upcoming LEGO events - 2013-2014

Postby Bruce N H » Mon Apr 08, 2013 3:27 pm

Hey all,

I'd like to put together a listing of all major LEGO events for the next couple of years. Please list any that you know of, their dates, and the city and country. As you add events, I'll edit them into this post. I'd especially appreciate help populating this calendar with events outside the US, since I'm more familiar with the US venues, and things from 2014, as those dates are sometimes not readily apparent on the official con websites, even if the organizers have already settled on dates. Also add things like ComicCons, ToyFairs, Star Wars events, train events or other similar events that will have either an official LEGO or significant AFOL presence. It can be anything from something like Comic Con that brings in over 100,000, down to a planned event of your local LUG as long as it is open to other AFOLs and/or the public.

Thanks,
Bruce

Hey Bruce,

I should have posted this a lot sooner, but I thought it was already on the list.

Another event (this weekend actually) is the Cincinnati Comic Expo.
It is September 13, 14, and 15. There is a kidcon, a special section titled "bricks by the banks" (I believe both of these are sponsored by OKILUG).
There will be lots of cool LEGO related activites and things happening including speed and blind build events.

Next year's dates have also been announced at September 19-21, 2014.

So I humbly request the following events be added to this LEGO calendar.

-Cincinnati Comic Expo: September 13, 14, 15 of 2013
-Cincinnati Comic Expo: September 19, 20, 21, of 2014

Both of these events will be in Cincinnati, OH. Please refer to cincinnaticomicexpo.com for more information.


Thanks!

Bricks Cascade, public days are advertised as March 8 2014 and March 9 so assuming it starts on Thursday for attendees that would be March 6-9 2014

Brickcon 2014; the first weekend of October, the 2-5th. I may be wrong, but that's most likely the date.
