Bricks by the Bay this weekend!

Posted by ,

Bricks by the Bay is one of the largest LEGO conventions on the West Coast and one of the largest displays of MOCs in Northern California. Tomorrow is the first day of this year's event, held at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California. Thursday - Friday is geared exclusively toward registered attendees. There are activities for registered attendees on Saturday and Sunday as well. In case you haven't registered, you can still experience Bricks by the Bay during the public exhibition, being held on both Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.

This is the 10th year of Bricks by the Bay, and the organizers have chosen a very clever theme this year: "The UneXpected". I can't wait to see the amazing MOCs created for this show!

I'll be there on Friday and Saturday. On Saturday afternoon, I'm participating on a panel with three fellow BayLUG members talking about our experiences on the LEGO Inside Tour.

If you're attending, please say hi and let me know your thoughts on the site. I may have a Brickset memento to share if you do! As always, I'll be the only MeganL there with a Brickset brick on her name badge.

Hope to see you there!

Awesome! My “friend” (he doesn’t really like me) from Discord is gonna be there. Too bad I live really far away from Santa Clara and can’t attend.

I went last year and it was great! Encourage anyone that will be sitting at home around NoCal to hop in the car and visit. Afternoons are cheaper than all day if you're busy. I have friends going Saturday but I'll be going on Sunday (can't miss Shawn Mendes Saturday evening @ Oracle). MeganL, I wish you were going Sunday!

I JUST moved to the Bay Area 2 months ago for a new job, and cannot wait to go to my first Lego convention! Can't wait to see all these mocks in person for the first time, rather than just reading about it later. No offense @MeganL, your articles are still great (especially the Elves reviews)
