St. Louis LEGO Fan Convention
There are three things that stick out in my mind about LEGOs. They fueled my creativity as a child; However, I was never very good at building anything that looked like anything; and my mother was never happy when she walked on them barefoot.
LEGO CONVENTIONS… WHO KNEW?
So, of course, if you’re attending the big LEGO fan convention in St. Louis this summer, please wear shoes. And bring your LEGOs. And get ready to salivate at the extraordinary exhibits that will be at your fingertips. (I have to tell you something, I had a visceral reaction to the news of this convention. I even gasped.) Here’s one from a few years in New Orleans.
Did you catch that total for the Grand Central Terminal display? Over 62,000 parts. It puts a garage to shame that I did when I was 11. I think it was a garage anyway.

ST. LOUIS LEGO FANS CONVENTION… WHERE AND WHEN
The St. Louis event will take place at the Greensfielder Recreation Complex in Queeny Park on July 30-31. And in addition to some stunning creations, vendors will be on hand selling all types of LEGO products available: new sets, old sets, custom sets, t-shirts and even jewelry.
LOTS OF LEGO FANS IN THIS PART OF THE COUNTRY
I missed the one earlier this year in Louisville; if I had known, I would have gone there. But there must be a LOT of LEGO fans in this part of the country; other conventions in 2022 will be held in Dayton, Ohio; Charleston, West Virginia; and Knoxville.
I doubt you’ll see the exact same exhibits twice, which might be why fans attend in such high numbers. Here is an excerpt from this Louisville event this winter:
If you’re the LEGO equivalent of Frank Lloyd Wright and want to attend, visit the St. Louis Expo Facebook page for registration information.

After doing a bit of reading, I don’t think I need to see it in person to guarantee that the spirits dwell there.
