Minefaire Minecraft Convention Founders

Minefaire is the #1 Minecraft event in the world. The founders of the event, Chad Collins and Gabe Young, stopped by to tell us all about the game and this huge event.

Minecraft was released back in 2009 and it’s now the second most popular video game of all time after Tetris. It’s often been described as “virtual LEGOs” and gives players the chance to build nearly unlimited creations in the game, one block at a time. Chad and Gabe saw their own children playing the game and knew it would be a big hit with fans around the world.

Minefaire runs March 17th and 18th, 2018 at the Saint Paul RiverCentre. The event includes live demonstrations, Minecraft merchandise, virtual reality and more. For tickets to Minefaire, click here.
