History and organization
Brick Fiesta is a non-profit, fan-run, family friendly annual LEGO fan convention. Unlike other LEGO fan conventions, Brick Fiesta moves each year, among four major Texas cities: Austin, Houston, Dallas, & San Antonio. The first Brick Fiesta convention was held as a four-day convention in 2011 at the Omni Southpark hotel in Austin.
The function of the Private Convention is to provide a venue for adult fans of LEGO to bring and display their own Lego creations. The event brings together the online fan community and helps fans to explore and develop their Lego hobby. Activities at the convention include presentations, classes, contests, games, and many experiences unique to Lego conventions.
The main focus of the Public Exhibition is to invite Lego fans of all ages and the general public to view hundreds of hobbyist-built creations and meet their creators. Also available to visitors are the vendors, who sell LEGO sets, creations, designs, and individual pieces.
