Brickset readers are invited to Ontario, Canada this summer for our inaugural LEGO Fan Convention for the adult hobbyist on July 28th to July 31st at The Assembly Hall, Toronto, Canada.
Our list of events includes plans for:
- Build Challenges
- Live auctions
- Prize raffles
- RC racing and,
- TWO Mindstorm’s Robot challenges.
Come display with us and enjoy the company of other AFOLS. Perhaps be a vendor and sell some of your awesome LEGO items. Watch, or better yet, participate in games and challenges! What better way to challenge your robot building skills than to build a robot to try to race to an OPEN FLAME before the other robot gets there?

From October 2nd, 2009 to January 4th, 2010, the Canada Science and Technology Museum will be presenting an exhibition in Ottawa featuring the history of ground, air and water transportations made completely out of LEGO. From the famous Titanic and the Ford Model T to futuristic spaceships, this is an event not to be missed if you're in the area.
On the opening weekend (October 3rd to October 4th), there will be an opportunity to help Robin Sather (Canada's only certified Professional Builder) build a 9-foot long space shuttle! (Space may be limited.)
