Giant Lego Expo Comes To Louisville

| February 27, 2013

The LEGO KidsFest national tour stops at the Kentucky Expo Center from April 5 through 7, bringing all of the creative hands-on, minds-on fun of LEGO building and experiences together in this three acre activity- and entertainment-packed family event for children of all ages and builders of all skills

and interests.

Among the many LEGO attractions, families will find:

  • LEGO Model Gallery: dozens of life-sized models made entirely from LEGO bricks
  • LEGO Master Builders: live demonstrations and activities from the crew who get paid to play
  • Creation Nation: build your own creation to add to a custom map of the U.S.
  • Race Ramps: build your own custom car, then race it down the ramp against friends and family
  • LEGO Games Arena: roll the dice to play LEGO board games
  • Construction Zones: creative free build, play and display areas
  • LEGO DUPLO: younger visitors can explore imagination through building
  • LEGO Retail and KidsFest Marketplace: purchase LEGO merchandise and official KidsFest tour goods
  • Brick Pile: a gigantic pile full of LEGO bricks for creative play and enjoyment
  • Monochromatic Builds: bricks of a single color to foster group creativity
  • Brickscapes: fantastic displays that combine lots of LEGO and DUPLO sets
  • And much more, covering over 180,000 square feet of space

Here’s a taste of what previous attendees had to say about the LEGO KidsFest:

“Just looking at all the fun creations; and seeing everyone else’s inspiring creations: you will want to start playing. Almost everywhere you look are buckets and areas of LEGO bricks to build with.”

– Amy in Minneapolis

“A weekend event guaranteed to be a good time.”

  – WTAE TV, Pittsburgh

“I would highly recommend this to anyone with kids. There was truly something for every age group to enjoy.”

  – Jennifer in Cleveland

“When we go to an event like the LEGO Kidsfest, the passion is reunited … Each station drew them in. They got lost in the possibilities … They saw new ideas and took mental notes that they’ll use for weeks and months to come.”

– Judy (GeekMom/Wired Magazine), Denver 

Based on sell-out attendance in previous markets, advance ticket purchase is strongly encouraged. Louisville is the second tour stop of the 2013 tour. Other stops include Richmond, Va.; Houston; Phoenix; San Jose, Calif.; Portland, Ore.; and Hartford, Conn.

Five sessions – all identical – are available for the first-ever Kentucky tour stop. LEGO KidsFest tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for children and can be purchased online at www.LEGOKidsFest.com.
