BrickCan LEGO convention is back in Vancouver next weekend, Apr 22-23 [News]

Following a successful first year, BrickCan returns to Vancouver, British Columbia for another LEGO convention and public exhibition. Next weekend, Saturday and Sunday April 22-23, hundreds of LEGO builders will converge on the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond (right outside of Vancouver) with creations big and small for an incredible LEGO exhibition everyone can enjoy. Tickets are selling fast, so purchase yours ahead of time online through Ticketmaster for $15 CAD.

Along with the full convention for builders, the general public can select a two-hour block to see everything that is on display, build their own creation, or shop among the many vendors for that one rare set or minifig accessory you’ve always wanted. Plus, all children 12 and under will receive an exclusive custom-designed BrickCan LEGO kit to take home.

The Brothers Brick will be on-site, scouring the builds for the next amazing LEGO creation to showcase, like this collaborative build Fallout Shelter from last year among many more exciting things. We hope to see you there!
