BC’S LARGEST-EVER LEGO® EXHIBITION AND FAN CONVENTION – COMING IN APRIL

 

VANCOUVER, BC (March 14, 2016) BrickCan – BC’s first major Adult LEGO® Fan Convention, and the largest Public LEGO® Exhibition ever staged in BC – will take place April 21-24, 2016 at the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond, BC.

Hundreds of Adult LEGO Fans from Canada, the United States, and even from overseas will travel to Richmond for the first major LEGO Fan convention ever to be held in BC. These enthusiasts have spent countless hours building amazing LEGO creations that will be on public display.

LEGO fans of all ages are invited to come to the River Rock Casino Resort on Saturday, April 23 or Sunday, April 24 to take in the BrickCan Public LEGO Exhibition. Tickets for specific viewing times are available through Ticketmaster.

In addition to the marveling at the hundreds of amazing creations on display, ticketholders will be able browse “Vendor Alley” and purchase rare or custom building kits, unique accessories, cool T-shirts, jewellery, artwork, books, and more. Then there’s the “Creation Station”, where kids can try some building of their own and participate in other interactive, hands-on activities.  Ticketholders aged 12 and under will also receive an exclusive, custom-designed building kit to take home.

All three regional adult LEGO clubs are joining together to support BrickCan and create a spectacular event: the Vancouver LEGO Club (VLC), the Abbotsford LEGO Users Group (AbbyLUG), and the Victoria LEGO Users Group (VicLUG).

BrickCan chairman Robin Sather says, “LEGO fans in the Vancouver area have been talking about hosting an event like BrickCan for almost 20 years, and it’s finally happening. We’re super excited!”
