If you love Lego or just building with things in general, set aside time on your calendar.
Mudgee’s very own LEGOfest in under construction and set to be a day full of fun.
After attending numerous events just like this, Founder of the Mudgee and Surrounds Lego Users Group (mslug) Nathaniel Leatherby, found it absolutely necessary to bring the festival to Mudgee.
“I had been around to a few other Lego festivals and thought it would be a good idea to have one here in Mudgee,” Mr Leatherby said.
The day does not discriminate against age, in fact, adults are encouraged to come along.
“Kids aren’t the only ones who like Lego, adults do too so the event is really open to people of all ages,” Mr Leatherby said.
The event will showcase Lego creations from all around the area as well as builds from Sydney.
Children will be able to have a go at building their own creation on the day at a free build area.
As for observing, there will be 40 tables with different Lego builds on them and could even include creations of Star Wars and superheroes.
All profits from the event will go towards 200 Bales.

“Every show donates to a charity and I thought the best one suited to Mudgee would be 200 Bales, and the farmers really need it,” Mr Leatherby said.
On the day, there will be a sausage sizzle and raffle.
The first prize of the raffle will be a large lego set of the Saturn V, the rocket that went to the moon in 1969.

The event will be held on 2nd December, at 9 to 5pm at the Mudgee Showground.
Entry will be $5 at the gates, with children under the age of three granted free entry.
“Come along and get some inspiration for your own builds.”
“You might see something and think ‘oh I can do that’.”
If the day is a success, Mr Leatherby said it is very likely the event will be held annually.
