Want to exhibit? You’ve come to the right place!

Brickfair is open to anyone that would like to put their LEGO creations on display for the public.  Engagement with people you’ve never met taking time to browse through your work is extremely fulfilling.

Follow two paths by selecting one of the two buttons below to register.  If you are part of a LUG (LEGO User Group), proceed to the LUG registration. If you are not or you prefer to exhibit independently, select the other.

Why is this important?  Our main focus is the enjoyment of the public and the recognition for the builders.  LUGs normally have collaborative exhibits, and if you’re registering as part of a LUG there is a fairly good chance that all exhibitors from a specific LUG will be grouped together. If not, what you’d like to exhibit becomes a little more important for planning the layout and ensuring a great experience for all.

All right? Are you ready?!  Make your selection below, and register now as limited space is available.

Once you have registered, don’t expect unicorns to appear, minifigures to sing or burgers to fall from the sky 🙂 We will give enough time for all registrations to be completed and then report back once we are ready.

How does judging work?

Brickfair 2024 is excited to announce its judging process for the annual LEGO exhibition! This year, we’re calling on volunteers to help judge our nine competition categories. We aim to have at least three volunteers per category, who will carefully review and select their top three entries. Our esteemed final judges will then review the shortlisted entries and choose the winners.

Join us on Sunday morning at 08:00 in front of the LEGO store for our prize-giving ceremony, where we’ll announce the winners and celebrate their incredible creations.

If you’re interested in volunteering as a judge, please reach out to us at hello@brickfair.co.za. We appreciate your help in making Brickfair 2024 a success!
