If you are a serious LEGO® builder and are interested in attending our next convention, join us on Thursday-Sunday, August 7-10, 2014. This time, the event will be even bigger, expanding to a second ballroom and adding workshops on Thursday!

Bricks by the Bay is a LEGO convention that has been taking place every year since 2010. Each year, quality LEGO builders descend upon Santa Clara from all over to show off their creations, exchange ideas, give and attend presentations on all aspects of the LEGO hobby and art form, buy/sell/trade LEGO and LEGO-related items, and socialize with like-minded individuals.

The weekend culminates in the public exhibition on Sunday, August 10, where the public has a chance to come and see what we've built!

Registration is now open! Register now for your badge.
