If you build it, they will come: BrickUniverse LEGO fan convention coming to Upstate NY in 2023

    LEGO fans, make your plans.

    The BrickUniverse LEGO convention is returning to Upstate New York, making a stop in Rochester and Albany this spring. Each two-day toycon event is part of their INSPIRE Tour.

    BrickUniverse will first head to the Washington Avenue Armory in Albany on April 15-16, then on to Rochester Main Street Armory April 22-23. Tickets are now available online at eventbrite for both the Albany and Rochester events.

    General admission tickets start at $16.45 and all attendees age four and older need a ticket. Children age three and under get in for free with an admission paying adult. Add-on benefits are available for general admission tickets.

    Just a few VIP admissions remain for both events. The VIP tickets gain entry to BrickUniverse one hour before General Admission passes and includes one VIP BrickUniverse 2023 LEGO Brick Badge.

    According to Rochester First, this year’s events will include a Star Wars zone for building spaceships, an interactive Building Zone for fans to build their own creations, an Architecture Zone where fans will be challenged to build with a monochromatic assortment of LEGO bricks, and the chance to see local LEGO artisans alongside professional LEGO artist meet-and-greets.

    Guests will have the chance to meet professional LEGO artist Jonathan Lopes, who began his career in New York; NASA-themed LEGO artist Lia Chan of Dallas, Texas; Chicago-based LEGO artist Rocco Buttliere; and Canadian artist Paul Hetherington.

    For fanatics of those colorful plastic bricks, you’ll also be able to buy items from brick merchants and more.

    See full details for both events on the BrickUniverseUSA website.
