Just a quick reminder that BrickWorld Chicago is this weekend, so if you live or visit in the area make sure you attend! BrickWorld Chicago is one of the largest LEGO fan events in the county with LEGO fans coming from around the world. The LEGO displays are amazing, and there are plenty of activities to participate in for all age-groups. Below are the details. 🙂
BrickWorld Chicago takes place at the Renaissance Convention Center in Schaumburg, Illinois. The private AFOL (Adult-Fan-of-LEGO) convention runs from June 11th – 15th, while the public exhibitions are on Saturday 14th (10am – 4pm) and Sunday 15th (10am – 3pm). Tickets can be purchased online or at the door. Kids 3 and under get in free. You can buy tickets here: BUY BRICKWORLD CHICAGO TICKETS
There are plenty of activities both on the AFOL days and on the public days; presentations, games, building events, contests, etc. You can see the entire schedule here. Also, if you have never attended a BrickWorld event before, watch the video below to get an idea on what to expect.
Also, Joshua Hanlon and Matthew Kay from Beyond the Brick will be on site to film all the action; including builder interviews and a walkthrough of the entire display. If you’d like to get a copy of the DVD go support their Kickstarter project. $20 is all it takes to secure your copy of the DVD, and larger pledges will also get you some sweet extra rewards.
LEGO’s own representatives will be at the event, along with practically every famous LEGO builder who’s creations you have likely only seen online. This is a great occasion not just to see some of the best LEGO creations, but also to make friends with other LEGO fans and get inspired! You may even come up with ideas for future co-created displays!
So head over to the BrickWorld Chicago website to get your tickets or learn more about the event, and if you do attend let me know! Also, feel free to come back and share your experiences for the benefit of our readers. 😉
