OAKS, PA - For Lego lovers in the Philadelphia area, the return of Brick Fest Live! to the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center in Oaks is your chance to build with over a million different Lego pieces.

Fresh off an exhibition at the New York Hall of Science, Brick Fest Live! will offer four football fields of LEGO to more than 25,000 super fans at the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center April 21-22, 2018.

Day passes start at $22.50 and VIP tickets start at $39.50. Kids two and under are free.

“Today we tour the nation and increase awareness that science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) are all in play when it comes to LEGO and other construction toys,” says Brick Fest Live! show producer Gabe Young. “At Brick Fest Live!, families build together to accomplish their goals and find creative solutions. In the process, they’re inspiring the next generation of artists, engineers and architects.”
