Lego fans in Illinois are very excited because the best brick convention in the entire world is coming to our state.

Lego Convention Is Coming To Illinois

One of my favorite toys growing up was Legos. Back in those days, they were basic. None of these fancy sets. It forced you to use your imagination. Since I was an only child I felt like I was pretty good at it. Between my friend and I, we had a huge crate full of bricks.

Nowadays, Legos are one of the most popular toys in the entire world. It's amazing what people can do with them. My friend and I would create huge buildings and leave them up for days at a time.

It just makes sense that Illinois would host a convention based purely on the Lego bricks. Especially, for fans of the popular toy. It's funny because it doesn't have a specific age group because most people like it.


The Lego convention is happening on September 28th and 29th at the DuPage Event Center & Fairgrounds in Wheaton. There will be plenty of room for all kinds of fun. I'm fascinated by watching costumes come.

This event will feature everything Lego including themes, meet and greets, There will be several hands-on exhibits for the kids. You don't have to be a master builder to participate. They even have plenty to do for the fans too.

If you're a fan of Legas, I suggest coming to everything to make sure you're getting the whole experience. You can just kick back and relax to enjoy the wonderful world of these unique concerts.
