Stockton, California will have its first ever LEGO Fan convention when the STOCKTON BRICK CONVENTION arrives at San Joaquin County Fairgrounds on February 3-4, 2024. For the event, professional LEGO Artists will be coming in from around the United States to display their amazing LEGO creations and to meet with fans. There will also be meet-and-greets with LEGO celebrities.
The event is being organized by 23-year-old LEGO fan and entrepreneur Greyson J. Riley. Greyson started college at 11 years old, wrote a book that teaches history through LEGO at 13, and started organizing large-scale LEGO fan conventions at 14 years old. "LEGO is so much more than a toy," Riley says, "and Brick Convention will show attendees just that the possibilities with LEGO are endless."
One of the special guests coming to the event is Amado Canlas Pinlac (known as ACPin). Pinlac is coming to display a full gallery of his award winning LEGO displays. He has been spotlighted in several books, magazines including BrickJournal, Blocks, and Brick.It magazines. ACPin has been invited numerous times to the Masterpiece Gallery at The LEGO House in Billund, Denmark to exhibit his various LEGO Botanical creations for several years starting in 2017 when it opened. He is the first and still the only Filipino and Kapampangan afforded this highest honor by The LEGO Group. His creations have won first prizes in various international competitions and have been exhibited throughout the United States and internationally in Denmark, Bahrain, and the Philippines.
