Further your explorations!
The annual BRICKS BY THE BAY convention will be on-site at the Hyatt at the same time as Nova Albion!
Bricks by the Bay is a 3-day event hosted by the Bay Area Lego Users Group, and running from Friday March 25th through Sunday March 27th at the Hyatt, alongside the Steampunk Exhibition.
There are a number of talks, discussions, games, contests, and other activities throughout Friday and Saturday for attendees, as well as a large exhibit hall where they can display their LEGO models for one another and for the Public Day on Sunday. There is no age limit, but those under 18 are required to have an adult also registered, and those under 16 must be accompanied by that adult at all times.
Nova Albion has worked out a reciprocal pass deal with the LEGO event organizers -
for just $10 you can get a pass (ask at the Registration Desk) that will let you in to all the BBtB daytime programming, displays and vendor hall. It has been suggested that Steampunk Exhibition participants should check out the panels and exhibits on Friday and Saturday, as Sunday will be open to the general public and may be very crowded.
