Bricks by the Bay™ is one of the largest LEGO® conventions in the Western U.S. and the premier annual display of LEGO brick creations in Northern California. So what exactly is a LEGO® convention, you ask? Bricks by the Bay is a four day long celebration of all things LEGO, where hobbyists, artists, fans and enthusiasts come together to learn, share and play. The convention will be held at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California, in August 2017.
Convention attendees bring their wonderful LEGO brick creations to display. We gather for brick building seminars, LEGO themed fun and games, and to hear from luminaries and ambassadors of LEGO brick building. On the last day of the convention, the public is invited to attend and see all the attendee built LEGO exhibits. Ours is one of many such conventions nationwide, such as BrickCon in Seattle, the BrickFairs held on the East Coast and BrickWorld in Chicago.
The 2017 Bricks by the Bay convention theme is California Dreamin’. Whether it is brick built models of famous California landmarks or other inspired builds that invoke the spirit and history of the Golden State, the attendees’ creations are sure to inspire. So join us this Summer which marks the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love and share some love for our favorite bricks.
