Bricks by the Sea 2023-24

Build Lang Syne

For 20 years, Bricks by the Sea has been the premier LEGO®  Event in Halifax. An annual extravaganza of original brick creations alongside an unbelievable array of retail sets, sprinkled with a bit of seasonal magic!

Debuting at the Dartmouth Sportplex in 2003, moving to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic and now calling the Nova Scotia Museum of Natural History home, the Bricks by the Sea show has been the passion project of Owen Grace and his team of friends. Owen's passion has been the foundation for the existence of the Maritime LEGO®  Users Group (MariLUG) which has gone on to do so many other great events around the region.

This year is a little different... A bigger investment from MariLUG AND we've invited some friends from across Canada to sent us some of their pieces to be included as well!

The show first opens on Saturday November 25th, and if you're lucky Owen and the MariLUG crew might be there too!

On December 2nd we will be adding Nutcrackers from across Canada to the display! Including an utterly amazing rendition of the local Christmas spirit themself... Woody the Christmas Tree!

There will be trains and lights and planes and knights! Wizards with cheese and birds on plumb trees!

Come check it out!

And Facebook limits events to 2 weeks, but the show runs from November 25th until January 6th 2024!

Come see what we've been building!
