BrisBricks Inc. Club Events
The Chandler Expo is BrisBricks largest event in the calendar. It’s held annually, around September/October at the Sleeman Sports Complex, Chandler. The event typically runs for 3 full days and has over 55 awesome displays. You’ll also find LEGO fan retailers onsite selling all things LEGO, as well as vendors providing snacks, drinks and other fun activities.
The Strathpine Expo (a.k.a Pine Rivers Show) is BrisBricks second largest annual event. It’s normally held about mid-year at the Strathpine Community Center, and runs for 2 full days. The Strathpine expo normally has about 20-30 awesome displays, as well as a selection of LEGO retailers onsite selling all things LEGO. There’s also a neat little selection of snacks and drinks available for sale, from small community groups and mobile vendors.
Mt Gravatt Expo
The Mt Gravatt “pop-up” show is a LEGO fan expo held at the Mt Gravatt Showgrounds, the location of the very first BrisBricks show back in 2012. The Mt Gravatt Expo is a tidy single day show and has space for about 20 or so LEGO fan displays. The Mt Gravatt show was recently held alongside a separately run BrickResales “Brick Fair” event; meaning there was HEAPS of awesome LEGO for sale, including loose parts, hard to get items and collectors pieces.

Rochedale State School Fete
BrisBricks love sharing the creativity and skill that club members invest into LEGO Building. There’s no better way to do that than share with young enthusiastic minds at a school fete. The Rochedale State School fete has welcomed BrisBricks on a number of occasions to display some of the club members’ creative work.
