Announcements

Dear Brickmaniacs,

As the world continues to deal with the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we must announce that we will cancel World War Brick in 2020. We must all take necessary measures to ensure the safety of those we love and the community at large. We plan to hold World War Brick 2021 in Minneapolis, MN on the weekend prior to Father’s Day, June 11-13. Those 2020 tickets already purchased will be honored in 2021 and 2020 ticket holders who don’t cancel will get an exclusive item for their faithful support. As the global pandemic continues to evolve and our communities continue to deal with the consequences, we are focused on doing what we can to serve our fans and the greater community. The health and safety of our fans and team members is absolutely paramount. Although we apologize for any inconvenience caused, we are confident that you all understand the importance of this decision. Your support has been and will continue to be indispensable to us as we weather this crisis. Please continue to do your part to slow the spread of COVID-19 by washing your hands regularly and maintaining proper social distancing. Please share with us what you build while at home using the #StayHomeWithBrickmania hashtag!

From our Brickmania family to yours we wish you good health and happy building! We can’t wait to see all of your at World War Brick 2021!
