The first LEGO® KidsFest in the Czech Republic: A two-week building feast will cover Prague with seven million bricks

LEGO® KidsFest is a globally successful feast of bricks, playing and creativity, which can builders in the Czech Republic experience for the first time this year. On an area of almost 10,000 square metres, visitors will have a chance to experience an endless building and unique LEGO® creations by certified builders from abroad and Czech fans will amaze brick funs. Dozens of specialised LEGO zones such as LEGO® Star Wars™, LEGO® Ninjago, LEGO® Chima™, LEGO® DUPLO®, LEGO® Friends, and LEGO® Architecture will be prepared for endless hours of building. “LEGO KidsFest is a two-week festival, which is unique in Central Europe in that it is packed with creativity and playing. It will please the fans of more complex LEGO models, entire families and the youngest up-and-coming builders. Each fan of LEGO bricks can have fun to the max with us and leave bursting with experiences,” promises Petr Břoušek, marketing manager, LEGO Trading.

Visitors to LEGO KidsFest will include certified builders of works of art made using LEGO bricks such as Sean Kenney from New York City, Dirk Denoyelle from Belgium and Rene Hoffmeister from Germany, who have prepared the 150 models for not only Czech fans. The uniqueness of the event is also illustrated by the number of bricks to be used for the festival. Creative visitors can use more than seven million LEGO bricks to build anything they can think of.

The festival is open to all builders regardless of their age; it is also friendly to families with the youngest children and its modern amenities include a barrier-free entrance and many relaxation zones. A sufficient number of refreshment booths will be prepared for hungry brick aficionados who can also bring and have their own snacks. A special LEGO Mini-cinema, shop, and fan zone will also be available.

Tickets are available from the Ticketpro network and on site; entry is free for children aged up to two. LEGO KidsFest will be held at the PVA EXPO PRAHA Letňany exhibition grounds.
