2012 Brickmania Events

Brickmania is a part of the international LEGO fan community and we participate in as many events as our schedule allow. Following the list of scheduled Brickmania appearance for 2012 so far. Brickmania will have a full selection of products for sale at all of these events.

Please note we will not have our usual month open house at the Brickmania Toyworks while we move into our new, bigger space (about 150 feet down the hall). We will have our regular open house at the current location January through March, but will not be hosting any birthday parties until after we have moved.
