Orlando’s first-ever Lego Brick Convention is coming next month
Set your calendars and grab your bricks, because Orlando’s first Lego Brick Convention is happening March 18 – 19, 2023. This hands-on Lego-focused event features creativity, family-fun, and giving to charity.
UPDATE – 03/17/23, 5:34 p.m. EST: Author, Tharin White, went to the early preview of this event and stated, “This event was so welcoming and full of fantastic people and creations. I was so enthralled by the media preview that I bought tickets to attend the event when it officially opens.”
Lego Brick Convention fan events happen across the United States, with other conventions in Rhode Island, Ohio, South Carolina, and more. Tickets start at $15 online ($18 in-person at the event), but if you’re interested in attending the Orlando event, you should act fast because over 70% of all tickets are already sold out.
Visitors can expect to meet famous Lego creators, including Mel Brown, Patrick Durham, and ACPin. Alongside celebrities, the event also promises massive Lego displays and opportunities to purchase rare and custom bricks and minifigures, as well as photo-ops, and of course, building with Lego.
Looking for the complete Lego weekend experience? After visiting this Brick Convention, the Legoland Florida theme park is a one hour and fifteen minute drive south. Legoland Florida has hosted the top three winning designs from the “Lego Masters” show in the past, and we were able to interview the season one winners of “Lego Masters,” Amy and Tyler Clites.
Not everything has been revealed, but visitors can expect to see this Super Mario Bros. Lego set that was three years in the making. This creation is close to the upcoming Donkey Kong roller coaster coming to Universal’s Epic Universe in 2025.
A portion of the proceeds from each Brick Convention is donated to Creations for Charity, an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that buys new LEGO sets for underprivileged children around the world during the holidays.
