  • BrickFair New Jersey 2019

    BrickFair is one of the most impressive and by far largest gatherings of AFOLs, TFOLs, and KFOLs in the United States. Founded by fellow AFOL and builder Todd Webb, BrickFair hosts annual events all along the Eastern seaboard throughout the year. While BrickFair Virginia is certainly the largest of the events, BrickFair New Jersey is no less a fun time for exhibitors and fans alike. ConnLUG will be in attendance at BrickFair New Jersey 2019 with an exhibitor display Nov 1st-3rd, featuring MOCs from many of our members.
