LEGO lovers may not be able to attend in-person conventions right now, but they can immerse themselves in all things LEGO at the Brickworld LEGO Fireworks Virtual Con on Saturday, June 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. MST. Tickets are $9 per show. Currently, only 2,000 tickets will be offered per show worldwide, so register now. This show will feature LEGO fireworks!
Using 18 Zoom rooms, the Brickworld Virtual LEGO Expo will allow participants to show their own creations to others as well as experts, including many “LEGO Masters” TV contestants.
Viewers can also participate in discussions with LEGO Community Manager Jan Beyer, Bricks in the Middle’s Kevin Hinkle and watch other tutorials and presentations.
They can also visit vendors to browse and purchase a variety of products, and join different display rooms, including the Great Ball Contraption, a Star Wars room, Guilds of Historica (one room with four different castle realms), a Smurf village and other fantasy settings.
Future Brickworld virtual conventions include:
- Brickworld Virtual Con Halloween on Saturday, October 31
- Brickworld Virtual Con Holiday on Saturday, December 12
Note that $1 from each ticket ($4 from a all-shows pass) will be donated to Brickworld’s longtime charity partner Make-A-Wish, along with Riley Children’s Hospital, Creations for Charity, and FIRST LEGO League.
Brickworld is also posting ongoing how-to demonstration videos so LEGO builders can improve their skills at home. Current postings include Building Round Part One and Building a Truss Bridge.
