2022 SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500® World Championship • Wednesday, January 19
11:00 AM
Location: Silver Lot, front of Central Hall


The “Super Bowl of masonry” is back! The SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500® World Championship Event is renowned as the top attraction for the World of Concrete trade show. The competition arena has spectators who witness an intense battle between 28 and their mason tenders to the test—the pair that constructs a 26’ 8”, double wythe brick wall by putting down the most bricks in one hour (with the fewest quality craftsmanship deductions) wins the title of world’s best bricklayer (and a new truck!).        

Representing the the best of North America, the duos work tirelessly to install as many bricks as possible while following strict
quality workmanship standards. The bricklayer’s walls are judged by 30 highly experienced masonry experts, enforcing 10 sets of craftsmanship requirements. The SPEC MIX BRICKLAYER 500 is recognized as the masonry industry’s only true test of skill, speed
and stamina that annually awards the title “World’s Best Bricklayer” and total purse of over $125,000 in cash and prizes including a new Ford F-250 4×4 XLT Super Duty truck and more!
