Newcastle Brickfest is on again. Rainbow Bricks is excited to announce the 2022 return of Newcastle’s premier and longest-running LEGO fan event. Newcastle Brickfest is a community event created by local volunteer LEGO fans for LEGO fans.
Fans of all ages will delight in the showcase of LEGO creations and collections from across NSW on Saturday 9 July and Sunday 10 July 2022 at the Newcastle Jockey Club.
Come along and see original LEGO creations and displays of LEGO themes, including the ever-popular city layout with working trains.
Exhibitors are always happy to share their passion for LEGO and to answer questions you may have about their display, and talk about LEGO in general.
As well as all the exhibits, there will be lots of activities for everyone to enjoy, including appearances by cosplaying friends from Hunter Heroes and Star Wars characters.
Brickfest is a family-friendly, not for profit community event which raises money for local charities. Over the past 6 years, Newcastle Brickfest has donated $70,000 to schools and charities.
This year, the Brickfest event will be supporting the John Hunter Children’s Hospital Kids Club. The group raises funds to help purchase equipment for the hospital that is not covered by the hospital’s budget.
Enjoy the displays as well as the following LEGO activities:
- Build Area – An area for the kids to build after being inspired by the exhibitor’s creations.
- Speed Builds – This popular competition returns and will run each hour.
- Remote Control Trackers – Control the RC Tracker set in our driving area.
- Find A Minifigure – Hidden on many of the displays will be a Minifigure. Tell us how many for a chance to win a prize!
- Colouring In – Colouring in competition for the under 12s.
- LEGO Raffle – LEGO prizes to be won.
- Cosplay Area – Have your photo taken with one of the characters or one of the backdrops.
If you get hungry, the Newcastle Racecourse will have its canteen open on the weekend.
