Brickworld Chicago is a convention for fans of LEGO, mostly consisting of AFOLs (Adult Fans of LEGO) or TFOLs (Teen Fans of LEGO), where they display and share their creations made of LEGO bricks. Brickworld consists of both a private convention and a public exposition.

Brickworld's private convention offers workshops, presentations, roundtable discussions, special events and challenges. The event provides an opportunity for fan community to get together and learn from each other. AFOLs and TFOLs are the main focus of Brickworld's private days.

Brickworld's public days invite anyone and everyone to view all the builder's creations as well as to see a few small events. In addition, popular LEGO-centric YouTubers are in attendance for fans to meet, including MandRproductions, RichboyJhae, TheBrickWiz, Dalek Bricks, and DTinaglia Studios. Vendors are also set up around the convention floor to sell both official LEGO sets or custom elements.

Brickworld Chicago occurs annually on the third weekend in June. Brickworld also operates several exposition only events around the Midwest and Florida.[1]

Brickworld was featured in the 2014 documentary A Lego Brickumentary.[2]

In 2020, Brickworld Chicago, Milwaukee, and Indy were all cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The shows were originally scheduled for June, October, and November respectively.[3]

Expositions include displays, interactive activities, and vendors selling LEGO sets, parts and aftermarket accessories. These events are in the same cities each year. We travel to these locations. But, we are not a traveling show in the sense that we go to a lot of new places each year.
