Have a kid that loves playing Minecraft, or love Minecraft yourself? I don't judge. My boyfriend got me a Minecraft diamond necklace as a gift once. Take your love of the game to the next level at Minefaire! The #1 Minecraft event in the country is coming to the St. Paul River Center on March 17th and 18th.


At the event you and your family can bring Minecraft to life with virtual reality experiences, nonstop live entertainment, and meet Minecraft YouTube creators flown in from around the world! There will be parent-child build challenges, official Minecraft Education Global Mentors to learn from, and  the largest official Minecraft Merch store in the world. Got an awesome Minecraft costume? You can compete in the costume contest!

Minefaire is an official Minecraft Community event and it even holds the Guinness World Record for largest convention for a single video game. How neat is that? Plus you can be part of it! Tickets start at $49 for a day pass or if you feel like going big, you can get a VIP Package for $69. The VIP package lets you into the venue an hour early, gives you priority seating for the Diamond stage, and comes with a VIP bag and lanyard.
