The LEGO KidsFest national tour will stop at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, Feb. 19-21, 2016 for the first time, bringing 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.

LEGO KidsFest is an official LEGO event for children of all ages and builders of all skills and interests.

Among the many LEGO attractions, families will find a LEGO Model Museum, race ramps, LEGO Star Wars and Disney Princess displays, a retail store, and more.

"Our 2016 LEGO KidsFest tour is going to delight both new and returning audiences," said Vince Rubino, events manager for LEGO Systems Inc. "We've still got some favorites on the show floor, like the Big Brick Pile, Creation Nation and the Race Ramps. There are also many new and unique activities designed for building, learning and fun."

Five sessions — all identical and 4½ half hours in length — are held at each tour stop. LEGO KidsFest tickets can be purchased at Tickets are $19 for the Friday and Sunday afternoon sessions, and $22 for both sessions on Saturday and the Sunday morning session.

On tour since 2009, previous LEGO KidsFest tour stops have included major cities such as Chicago, Boston, Dallas, Atlanta, San Jose, Cleveland, Richmond, Phoenix and Portland.
