The World Festival at the FIRST® Championship is a celebration of the FIRST® LEGO® League season that showcases Champion’s Award-winning teams from around the world.

The FIRST Championship is a two-week celebration that STEMs across two cities. Last year, more than 60,000 people attended!

Next April, we’ll be celebrating the HYDRO DYNAMICSSM season at the following locations:

  • Houston, Texas, USA: April 18-21, 2018
  • Detroit, Michigan, USA: April 25-28, 2018

Approximately 33,000 teams from 90 countries are competing in about 1,400 FIRST LEGO League qualifying and championship tournaments around the globe this season! These teams all have a reason to celebrate, and although we wish everyone could attend the event, we have a limited number of spots available. For this reason, we produce an invitation list each year that indicates the regions that will be able to send team(s).

We are pleased to share this year’s World Festival Invitation Lists with you:

Don’t see your region on the list? We rotate regions every year to make sure each region has a chance to participate. We also have a live webcast so you can experience the event even if you’re not there!

Save the dates and stay tuned to the FIRST Championship Website for more information!
