UPDATE, JUNE 23: First-release tickets for LEGO® CON have sold out. More tickets will be released on Friday, July 1.

The winter school holidays are fast approaching, which means parents and caregivers Sydney-wide will be looking for ways to entertain the kids, ideally with activities that the adults in attendance can also get a kick out of. Here's one option that nails the brief.

Following two years of online-only events, LEGO® CON is coming to Sydney this winter for a live weekend-long edition. The two-day event comes as The LEGO® Group celebrates its 90th anniversary this year, so expect a bumper celebration of all things brick with plenty to see, do and build.

On July 9 and 10, little and big kids alike can make their way to Sydney Showground for a huge lineup of activities spanning the worlds across the full range including LEGO® City, LEGO® Friends, LEGO® DOTS, LEGO® Technic and more. And it goes without saying that a little construction is on the cards, too. Guests can create and play with a range of sets and help build a top-secret large-scale LEGO® project.

LEGO® CON will also host the Sydney debut of the extremely impressive life-sized LEGO Technic™ McLaren Formula 1™ Race Car, most recently on display at the Australian Grand Prix. Kids are also invited to join a session of Build the Change, an inspiring conversation where little LEGO® lovers can share their hopes and dreams for the future.

LEGO® CON takes place from July 9–10 at Sydney Showground (Hall 5). Entry is free, but registration is required to enter. For more info on the event and to register, head to the website
