When is Minecon 2021/2022? Date, Details, & Everything You Need to Know About Minecraft Festival

It's coming. It's just really far away.

For avid Minecraft fans and those interested in attending Minecon 2021 (also called Minecraft Festival), we have good news and bad news. The bad news is that because of the COVID-19 Pandemic, it was postponed again until 2022. The good news is that they have honed in on the official date for both the event and when you can purchase the tickets! Let's look at everything you need to know about the event.

Date & Location

As of now, the most solid information we have about Minecraft Festival is that it will take place in Orlando, FL, between mid-Summer and early Autumn, 2022. This was announced on September 3, 2020 during the Minecraft Live 2020 event. This was the second (and hopefully last) postponement for this event.
