Announcing… Official Minecraft Community Events

Meet, greet, compete!

Just a few minutes ago we announced MINECON Earth - an interactive live show coming to your screens this November! Read more about that on our dedicated page.

But for many members of our community, making new friends while getting to meet their favourite YouTubers, mapmakers, artists and more is one of the things that made previous MINECONs so special. For that reason we’re also planning a whole new type of Minecraft show. One that will take place a little closer to home. We’re excited to present: Official Minecraft Community Events!

Unlike previous MINECONs, these local gatherings will be hosted by community-led partners such as Minefaire, Minevention and Blockfest (a brand new event by the nice folks at Multiplay). These partners (along with many more to come) have gained our official stamp of approval to throw authentic in-person Minecraft experiences. You’ll get to meet your favourite YouTubers and streamers, compete in tournaments and costume contests, see unique content and more.

We’ll have more info on community events in the near future so watch out for one happening in your area soon!
