Microsoft and Mojang are letting the world get in on their Minecraft based event with MINECON Earth, a global event that everyone can attend for free.
The community event takes place on the 18th November 2017 and starts at 17:00 GMT / 12:00 noon Eastern / 9:00 Pacific and will last 90 minutes. The interactive live stream event also adds Minecraft cosplay and the ability to buy exclusive Minecraft goodies during the event to be delivered.
We’ve always wanted to make it easier for more of our community to participate in MINECON. This year we’re focussing on interactive coverage of a condensed, extra special, show that you can watch LIVE via the internet. We’re calling it MINECON Earth.
For more information on MINECON Earth, check out the official website.
Also during the announcement of MINECON Earth, Mojang promoted Official Minecraft Community Event’s where the community get together to talk about Minecraft.
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.
