I am so excited that Lego has just announced the dates for their 2013 KIDSFEST Tour, and they are coming to my town just in time for Owen's 6th birthday.  We are going to surprise him and take him the Sunday before his birthday, he is going to LOVE it!  We couldn't drag him away from the small Lego Store at Downtown Disney last year, I can only imagine his reaction when we arrive at Kidsfest!

Here are the locations and dates which were just announced:

Richmond, Virginia: February 15 - 17

Louisville, Kentucky: April 5 - 7

Houston, Texas: May 17 - 19

Phoenix, Arizona: July 12 - 14

San Jose, California: August 30 - September 1

Portland, Oregon: October 11 - 13

Hartford, Connecticut: December 6 - 8
Here are the details...

Ready your building skills! The LEGO KidsFest, a nationally-traveling giant LEGO expo, is coming to a city near you! This interactive LEGO extravaganza brings all of the creative hands-on, minds-on fun of LEGO building and experiences together in an 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

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 and official KidsFest tour merchandise

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 150,000+ square feet of space

On tour since 2009, nearly 400,000 have attended a LEGO KidsFest. Previous tour stops include Minneapolis, Boston, Austin, Cincinnati, Denver, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Milwaukee, Cleveland, and Raleigh. Tickets for many cities have sold out with 25,000 to 30,000 visitors in attendance at each venue.

Based on sell-out attendance in previous markets, advance ticket purchase is strongly encouraged. Tickets for all 2013 tour stops are on sale at

Five sessions - all identical - are available for the each tour stop. For full details, visit the website at
