Calling all construction toy fans! We are the show for you! Why do we love construction toys so much? Because they INSPIRE. Because they give us an opportunity to BUILD & PLAY. Because, once you are a fan, there are fun opportunities to SWAP. And because of the thrill you feel when you get to SHOP for a new set.
Brix n Blox is THE show for the construction toy enthusiast….taking place Saturday, November 26, 2016 at Highland Park Community Hall located at 3716 2 St NW, Calgary, AB. Doors open at 11:00 am and the fun will be going hard until 5:00 pm. See you there!
Construction toys have a huge fan base, from the toddler playing with her first set of Mega Bloks to the lifelong AFOL (adult fan of LEGO). And why not? There is something downright inspiring about seeing a person, place or thing built out of bricks!
Brix n Blox is pleased to be partnering with a team of true Lego artists, the Southern Alberta Lego User Group (SALUG) to present the Brix n Blox LEGO Competition. This competition will involve builders from the age of five to adult, and will include multiple themed categories. Some fantastic prizes will be up for grabs, courtesy of SALUG, in addition to the coveted Brix n Blox LEGO Contest trophy. The full registration package outlining registration fees, contest parameters and what kind of cool stuff our Builder’s get with their registration will be posted shortly. Space is limited, so you’ll want to sign up early!
Registration is closed for 2016. See you next year!
“Dad….Mom….Honey….I need to PLAY!!”
We can’t expect your little engineers and architects in training (or yourself for that matter) to be in the presence of construction toys galore and not get in some play time. So we’ve worked in lots of opportunities to play at Brix n Blox, including:
- The Great Wall of Calgary: don’t leave without putting your personal mark on this brick wall
- Construction Sites: you know how sometimes you just need to get away from the crowd and zen out with some bricks and blocks? Ya, we’ve got you covered!
- Get Your Game On: LEGO has released such a fantastic suite of video games, it would be a darn shame to not provide the opportunity to partake! Video game terminals will be set up throughout the show for anyone looking to get their game on!
- ….and more! Stay tuned here for more details on additional activities as they become confirmed
Brix n Blox Bazaar!
As any true fan can attest to, space to store and display your new sets is a valuable commodity, and often a limited one. Enter the Brix n Blox Bazaar! For a low entrance fee ($40 for a Private Vendor six-foot table), you can bring in as many construction toy sets and affiliated products as you can fit on the table and barter, swap and sell to your heart’s content. Forget selling your used sets on Kijiji or holding a garage sale….Brix n Blox is giving you the opportunity to participate in a good old-fashioned bazaar with fellow fans. The Brix n Blox Bazaar is your one stop shop for used, out-of-production and vintage construction toys! Space is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis, so register today!
Please note, tables can be shared among up to a maximum of two parties – if you are only interested in a half-table and do not have someone to partner up with, let us know and we’ll match you up with someone.
Private Vendor tables are meant for used, out-of-production and vintage toys only. If you are interested in selling new off-the-shelf products we can hook you up with a Business Vendor table!
Minifig Trading Area
Check our Instagram account (@brixnblox) and you’ll see that we love our Minifigs! And we’re guessing that you do too!

Have some Mega Bloks Micro Action Figures you want to trade? Bring them by and see what you can get.
Note – there is no extra cost for this activity your event ticket covers it!
