Lego fun for absolutely everyone
If you are planning to go away for Easter, you are going to miss Adelaide's premier Lego event – Brick-a-laide. Brick-a-laide 2017 will once again be held at the Adelaide Convention Centre from Friday 14 April to Saturday 15 April 2016, with two fun filled days to delight the young and old alike.
You will get to see amazing displays such as the Barossa Vintage Railway by Damien Graetz, showing typical railway locomotives and running stock found on the Barossa Valley Railway line in the late 1960's and early 1970's.

Why not follow the yellow brick road to the Lego North Terrace or find out what Nutella and Star Wars have in common?

There is absolutely no doubt that the unbeatable line up of brick creations, showcasing local and interstate modellers and builders, will delight each and every adult and child who visits this event of fun filled displays. There will be retailers for you to purchase your heart's desire, interactive activities, competitions, life size cosplay characters and the delicious Brick Cafe will once again be able to satisfy your hunger after your session.

Brick-a-laide will once again run on hourly entry sessions with limited capacity to ensure that you can get up close to the models on display. Once your session begins you can stay as long as you like; enjoy the models and get creative at the play tables or around the trade area. There are Sensory Friendly Sessions at 8 am and 4.30 pm on both days for those with Autism Spectrum Disorders and special needs. These sessions will provide a supportive environment with low volume music and announcements and reduced visitor numbers. This is truly a fun filled event for absolutely everyone.
