At least we still have those cool Lego helmets.

The Singapore Brickfest Organising Committee has decided to postpone Singapore Brickfest 2020, which was previously scheduled to happen on June 6 and 7 this year. This is due to Singapore’s government taking measures to ensure social distancing, and advising events with more than 250 people participating to be either cancelled or postponed. 

The event had over 8 nations participating, along with more than 100 tables of exhibitors and would have attracted a massive crowd size - thus, it was deemed unsafe to continue. However, the Organising Committee reaffirmed that the event’s sponsors and 50 volunteers have committed to the event’s postponement to 2021. For those let down by the postponement however, Singapore Brickfest is still planning:

  1. Increased community engagement to encourage LEGO® My Own Creation workshops

  2. Smaller scale LEGO MOC gatherings

  3. Online/offline contests to inspire budding builders

Via a press release, Singapore Brickfest stated that a smaller scale year-end event for Lego fans might still be feasible - but it isn’t a sure thing yet. Look, as long as you don’t take Lego Super Mario away from me, I’m happy. Stay home and keep yourselves safe!
