Tour the world’s biggest LEGO convention from your own home

Couldn’t make it to Brickworld Chicago 2024 to check out the world’s biggest LEGO convention in person? Tour it from your own home instead…

Every year, thousands of attendees descend on the Renaissance Hotel & Convention Center in Chicago to soak up 100,000 square feet of LEGO builds and vendors. It’s the biggest LEGO convention in the world, and the place to be if you want to check out what some of the best builders around are doing with the brick right now (or just fill your boots with new and retired LEGO sets and minifigures).

There’s just one obstacle in the way for most of us: getting to Chicago in the first place. But if you don’t have the spare time or budget to tour the convention in person, there’s an alternative solution thanks to YouTubers Beyond the Brick, who have now published an incredible four-hour tour of the show floor, spotlighting the hundreds of imaginative builds along the way.

From sprawling LEGO Star Wars dioramas and huge military machines to bite-sized character builds and memorable mosaics, Brickworld Chicago basically has it all. Whether you’re looking for inspiration for your own custom builds or just want to gape in awe at what other people are capable of with the brick, it’s definitely worth pulling up a pew and soaking up every second of this in-depth tour.

Or you could just pop it on in the background while you’re building LEGO, cooking dinner, cleaning your house, working out – whatever. Every time you glance up at the screen, there’ll be something new and awesome to take in. Hit play above to take your own virtual tour of Brickworld Chicago.

Details on next year’s convention have yet to be announced, but it typically takes place in the third week of June, so mark it on your calendar now…

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then.
