Find Official Minecraft Community Events near you!

Mapping the latest Minecraft events around the world

A little while ago we announced Official Minecraft Community Events: awesome mini-conventions, gatherings and parties hosted by handpicked partners from the Minecraft community itself! It’s a great way for you to make new Minecraftin’ friends, snap selfies with the coolest video creators, meet mapmakers, bag cool merch, compete, cooperate and generally have an incredible amount of fun - all without the need for an expensive plane ticket to another continent! Why? Because the idea is that they take place ALL OVER THE WORLD - and hopefully there’s one just round the corner from you.

It’s early days, and we expect this list to grow hugely over the coming weeks, months and years, until every corner of the globe is covered in Minecraft fun. But for now, here’s a quick rundown of our amazing partners and where their events can be found!

We’re always looking for new folks to partner up with, so if you’re interested in applying to put on your own Official Minecraft Community Event, we have a guide you can read here.

On to the events!
