LEGO fans will be saying “let’s go” when a popular toy brick convention comes to Syracuse after previous stops elsewhere in Upstate New York.

BrickUniverse, a traveling LEGO fan expo, will bring its 2023 “Inspire Tour” to the New York State Fair’s Horticulture Building on Saturday, Oct. 28. The day-long event will feature professional LEGO artists, various exhibits and creations, and give attendees a chance to build their own LEGO masterpiece or find rare and new LEGO sets.

General admission prices start at $15.12 (including fees) through Eventbrite and brickuniverseusa.com; tickets are required for all children 5 and older and all adults, including parents. Admission is free for children 4 and under when accompanied by a paid adult.

Tickets are sold in time blocks, from 10 a.m. to noon, 12:30-2:30 p.m. or 3-5 p.m. A limited number of VIP admissions (9 a.m. to noon) and Fast Pass (5:30-7:30 p.m.) are also available for $28.07 and $22.46, respectively; VIP admission includes entry one hour before general admission starts and one exclusive VIP BrickUniverse Syracuse LEGO Brick Badge.

Add-ons are also available for souvenirs like a BrickUniverse Signature Tote Bag or a BrickUniverse Syracuse 2023 Brick, an actual LEGO brick with “Syracuse” and the BrickUniverse event date printed on its side.

BrickUniverse previously came to Albany and Rochester earlier this year and featured a “Star Wars” zone for building spaceships, an interactive Building Zone, and a chance to meet professional LEGO artists like Jonathan Lopes, Lia Chan and Rocco Buttliere. The toycon will return to Rochester on April 20-21, 2024, and Albany on April 27-28, 2024.
