We attended the Lego Fan based convention called Bricks by the Bay virtually this year. We had a one hour session where we presented some of what we’ve been doing while there hasn’t been any opportunity for display in a short video. We also talked about our trees and the landscaping standard that includes rivers, paths and oceans. We have detailed info on those on our club standards page.
We will have a large Lego display at Desert Ridge Marketplace (next to California Pizza Kitchen) opening on Black Friday, Nov 29, 2019. The display is open to the public for free on Black Friday, Saturdays and Sundays for 3 weekends. The last day is Dec 15, 2019. Our hours are:
Black Friday: 11AM – 8PM
Saturday: 11AM – 8PM

We will have a large winter village, a city, Egyptian desert, trains, Wizard of OZ, Star Wars and a community build of a large Mosaic of London Bridge.
Five of our club members went to a Lego convention in Santa Clara, California called Bricks by the Bay. There were about 300 AFOLs (Adults Fan of Lego) attending and a little more than 3000 visitors on the public days. We put together a 12.5′ x 25′ large City and Train layout. It won two prizes, Small Team Large Display award and the Best Landscaping for the Wizard of Oz scenes. Here are some pictures of that display:
We had a large area at Phoenix Fan Fusion 2019 (May 23rd – May 26th). The city/train layout was 12.5′ x 25′ and another similar sized area that included a moon base, misc models and lots of Star Wars. Here’s a bunch of pictures from the event:
We had a Lego Movie 2 display at Tempe Marketplace to help promote the movie in Jan 2019. Our display was open to the public for 3 weekends from Jan 25th to Feb 10th, 2019. Here are some pictures from that event:
We have a large display at Desert Ridge Marketplace. It will be open on weekends from Black Friday to December 16th. We are across from American Eagle Outfitters. We are open on Fridays from 6PM to 9PM, Saturdays from 11AM to 8PM and Sundays from Noon to 6PM. We have special hours on Black Friday from 11AM to 9PM. Admission is free and we have a large Mosaic build as well as a modular castle that people can build. There is a large Winter Village as well as a large City and train display. We’ve added a brand new Under the Sea section as well as a 1920’s city section in honor of a couple new movies.
We were at the Tucson Toy Train Show on Nov 9th and 10th. Our display was (for us) a mid sized display. It was 15′ x 20′ in size and had 3 different tracks with plenty of spurs for parking tranis. There weren’t very large crowds, but there was a steady stream of people coming by our display. Here are some pictures of our display.
