Northern California-June 2014:

Thursday, Friday and Saturday are registered attendee exclusive days. The final day of the convention, Sunday August 10, 2014, will include a Public Exhibition where the general public can come in and view the many creations on display.
This year’s convention has something for every attendee including:
- Keynote speaker and special guest: David Pagano, founder of Paganomation, an award-winning production studio.
- New this year: Bricks by the Bay Brickfilm Festival. Brickfilmers from around the world are submitting films fitting the convention theme of “Fun & Games” as well as their best work of the prior year. Festival judges include animator David Pagano.
- Convention attendees will be able to take part in a number of games and contests at the convention. A favorite contest is the CosPlay or Costume Contest with contestants having costumes that “Look Like LEGO®” or are “Made From LEGO® Parts.”
This year’s convention features a third attendee-exclusive day. Thursday, August 7, will offer four special workshops:
*“LEGO® Animation” with David Pagano (Professional LEGO animator; BBTB 2014 Guest of Honor & Keynote Speaker);
