Policy - Children of Adult Fans

Child Attendance at BrickCon

BrickCon recognizes that LEGO is an everlasting toy: it is as fun today as it was in 1958, when the brick we know and love received its patent. There are many ways for LEGO fans of all ages to engage with and enjoy our favorite toy.

With that said, BrickCon is an event intended put on by adults and intended for adults and young adults. If the primary LEGO fan who wants to attend is under the age of 14, BrickCon is not the right place for them.

LEGO fans of all ages are welcome to join us during public hours (Saturday and Sunday); the private convention is for ages 14 and up (when accompanied by a parent or guardian) and fans 18 years and older.

We respect and encourage builders of any age: if you are not yet old enough to attend BrickCon as registered attendee, we encourage you to come on public days, and become involved in your local LEGO group. Build, create, and when you’re old enough - we’re excited to have you join us.

Registrations made for persons under the age of 18 without meeting our requirements will be rejected and any monies refunded.
