About Bricks LA

Started in 2015, Bricks LA is an annual convention for Adult Fans Of LEGO (AFOL) to share their brick art, ideas, and friendship with other brick enthusiasts! Guests are invited to explore hundreds of fan built models, shop with brick vendors for sets and unique gifts, and spark your creativity with a variety of activities. Although the event usually takes place at the Pasadena Convention Center in sunny Southern California, due to state health and safety guidelines, we will have our first virtual event in January 2021.

Bricks LA is proud to be one of only 13 events in the world recognized by The LEGO Group as an AFOL Networking Event (ANE). Events identified as ANEs focus on bringing AFOLs together and are working to grow their international reach while helping to inspire the next generation of builders.

Public Guests

Bricks LA is the only show of its kind in Southern California, providing a safe environment for families and brick enthusiasts of all ages to explore the art of brick building and meet the builders behind these amazing creations! Along with discovering incredible brick built models, guests will find a variety of vendors with brick related items such as new and vintage LEGO sets, minifigures, jewelry, gifts, and more. Be inspired by builder hosted panels and presentations and let your imagination run wild with demonstrations and hands-on activities through the weekend!
