Metro Vancouver’s BrickCan LEGO Exhibition and Convention

Brickcan Lego Convention

The BrickCan LEGO Exhibition is BC’s biggest LEGO event. It takes place at the River Rock Casino Resort in Richmond in April.

The exhibition part of the event is a two-day affair and in 2024 happens on April 20th and 21st. In 2023 the exhibition ran from April 22nd to 23rd. It’s a delight for fans of all ages who wander the exhibition hall marvelling the creative displays of LEGO models. Running concurrent to the exhibition is the BrickCan Adult LEGO Fan Convention, considered Canada’s largest such convention and launched by Adult Fans of LEGO (or AFOLs as they are affectionately known). This event ran on April 20th in 2023.

Hundreds of LEGO aficionados from all over the world are at the BrickCan LEGO event showcasing their creative designs. They are also on hand to engage with the public and fellow AFOLs about their works of art. At the event there are usually a few LEGO models never before seen.

The public attending the two-day non-AFOL exhibition part of the event on the Saturday and Sunday can have fun building their own LEGO designs, learning from the LEGO masters themselves and shopping with vendors.

The public exhibition on the weekend is a great event. It’s popular with young families and their children, but also for adults. It’s amazing how popular LEGO is with adults. You must admit though, LEGO is pretty cool and awesome, and it’s amazing what these LEGO artists can build! If you’ve never been to this event, and you like LEGO, you should go!

Event Location

The BrickCan LEGO event takes place at the River Rock Casino at 8811 River Road in the north part of Richmond, just south of the Fraser River from the City of Vancouver.

For those not familiar with the location, it’s right on the SkyTrain rapid transit line and not far from the Vancouver International Airport. The casino is just a two-minute drive from where the Richmond Night Market takes place in the summer and about 3.5 kilometres from the McArthurGlen Outlet Mall.

If travelling by car, there is lots of parking in the parkade next to the casino. If travelling by public transit, Bridgeport Station is conveniently just steps from the resort.

The River Rock Casino is a hotel and casino. It has slot machines and games like Blackjack and Roulette. There are also restaurants, and a theatre where shows and concerts sometimes take place. The BrickCan LEGO Exhibition happens in the theatre, but with all the theatre seating removed from the room.

Note: Strollers and wagons aren’t permitted in the exhibit hall because of space constraints. Wheelchairs, however, are allowed.
