Is there a child out there that doesn't enjoy building and creating with LEGO bricks? If so, I haven't met them yet. Both of my girls love the open-ended creativity that comes along with these colorful little bricks, people and accessories and have yet to tire of constructing, destructing, and rebuilding over and over again.
Therefore, when I heard that there was a LEGO KidsFest national tour, I could only begin to imagine the fun that would be had when over 150,000 square feet of space are filled with LEGO bricks!

The LEGO KidsFest 2012 tour stops include Cincinnati (March 23 – 25), Denver (April 27 – 29), Milwaukee (June 15 – 17), Austin (August 31 – September 2), Detroit (October 12 – 14) and Pittsburg (November 30 – December 2).
While I often feel that Wisconsin is left out of some of the fun events and tours that take place across the country, I'm thrilled that LEGO is stopping at Milwaukee's Frontier Airlines Center from June 15 – 17, 2012. With it will bring 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 goods and gear
- 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 more! Check out just a portion of the fun from the LEGO KidsFest tour stop in Denver:
"Any family who likes to be inspired, get hands-on and have fun together won’t want to miss LEGO KidsFest," said Vince Rubino, LEGO events manager. "We're bringing so many activities for Milwaukee-area families to test and showcase their creativity and building skills in what is sure to be a family event to remember."
Five sessions – all identical – are available for the Milwaukee June 15 – 17 tour stop. LEGO KidsFest tickets are $20 for adults and $18 for children and can be purchased online at LEGOKidsFest.com. Based on sell-out attendance in previous markets, advance ticket purchase is strongly encouraged!
But, wait! Why buy tickets when you can WIN them? One lucky person will win two tickets to the opening night session (4-8:30pm) on Friday, June 15, 2012!

I am receiving passes for my family to attend LEGO KidsFest in exchange for sharing this information and writing a review, but all thoughts and opinions are honest and my own.
