What’s New

We are excited to announce that we will once again be displaying at the Way of Lights at the Shrine of Our Lady of the Snows in Belleville, IL this holiday season. After taking a year off last year due to restrictions on the size of indoor gatherings by the state of Illinois, we have a huge display planned, including our largest LEGO city ever!

IMPORTANT VENUE CHANGE – Unlike years past, this year we will be set up in the Visitor’s Center in the former location of the Shrine Restaurant. It’s to the right just past the camel rides and kettle corn.

St. Louis County continues to limit indoor gatherings, so we are still holding monthly meetings remotely so we can show off what we’re building. See the Upcoming Events page for our meeting schedule and to get a link to join a meeting on the day that it occurs. We’re always excited to meet new members and would love for you to join us.

We will make every effort to keep our schedule here up to date in the event of cancellations due to COVID-19 precautions, but to be sure you receive updates as soon as possible, follow the GtwLUG Facebook page.


The Gateway LEGO Users Group (GtwLUG) is a group of adults in the St. Louis area who enjoy building with LEGO® brand building blocks.  The club puts on displays throughout the year and meets monthly for club meetings.  You can learn more about us in this December 2016 article in the Belleville News-Democrat.

Visitors and prospective members are always welcome to join us at meetings. See the schedule for details.



Club meetings occur on the dates shown below and are always at Grant’s View Public Library  in Room #1 from 1:00 – 4:00 PM unless otherwise noted.

Note: Until the library reopens their meeting rooms, all meetings are being held remotely via teleconferencing software.  Members should watch the forum and Facebook pages for links.  Prospective members should check this site the day of a meeting as a Zoom link will be posted at least one hour ahead of the meeting.
