About Houston Brick Club

Houston Brick Club is a varied group of people who enjoy building, displaying, and collecting all things LEGO®.

Throughout the year Houston Brick Club has a variety of activities.  These may include setting up a display at a museum or other event;  building a custom item for a charity auction;   or spending time building with children in a hospital.  We also meet about once a month to talk LEGO®, swap parts, build things, and generally have a good time.  Meetings may take place at a member’s home, a restaurant, a mall, or any other place that won’t mind a group of adults talking about a highly sophisticated interlocking brick system.

Please see our Events page for information about specific activities.

Houston Brick Club was originally known as TexLUG-Houston.  “TexLUG” stands for Texas LEGO® Users Group.  There are other similar LUGs in in Austin, San Antonio, and Dallas/Ft. Worth.  In addition, Texas Brick Railroad is a state-wide LEGO® Users Group with a focus on trains.  In 2019 the group simplified its name to Houston Brick Club.

In July 2016 TexLUG-Houston hosted Brick Fiesta:  a non-profit, family-friendly convention celebrating LEGO® in Texas.  Brick Fiesta 2017 was held in Mesquite, Texas (near Dallas), Brick Fiesta 2018 was held in San Antonio, and 2019 will be in Austin.  The 10th Anniversary Brick Fiesta will be held in Houston in 2020.  For more information, check back here or follow Brick Fiesta on Facebook.

 

Can I join Houston Brick Club?

Of course!  Houston Brick Club is open to anyone who enjoys LEGO® products.  All you need to do is come to a meeting or event and introduce yourself.  We are family-friendly, but we do ask that anyone under 18 bring an adult with them to participate in any of our activities.

Most of our internal communication about meetings and other events is done using using Google Groups.  To request access to the group forum, please click here.  We also have a Facebook group, found here.
