Each year, Bricks by the Bay selects a theme for the convention. This is a word or phrase that serves as inspiration for the attendees building models to display at the convention, as well as the graphic arts and activities at the event. The themes for previous Bricks by the Bay conventions were:
- 2010: The Brick Artistic
- 2011: Creative Combinations
- 2012: Green (it was held on St Patrick’s Day weekend)
- 2013: Brick Technologies
- 2014: Fun & Games
- 2015: Monsters
- 2016: Seven
The theme for Bricks by the Bay 2017 is “California Dreamin’.” During the 2016 convention, attendees put their ideas in a suggestion box. The Directors met, went through the entries, and selected the theme. Thanks to all attendees who participated by providing their suggestions.
We encourage all attendees to build models commemorating California Dreamin’ which reflects life in our beautiful state, and we’re excited to see what everyone will bring. Get your imagination going and plan something really awesome!
As always, there will be an overall trophy awarded to the MOC that best reflects the theme. Start planning your California Dreamin’-themed model today!
