Minecon 2023 Start Date and Details

If you are a Minecraft fan and curious about the upcoming Minecon or so-called Minecraft festival, here’s what you need to know about it.

At first, the Minecon should have started in 2020, but due to Covid-19 and health issues, it had to be postponed until 2023.

Even though it has been postponed and announced by the official Minecraft staff, that Minecon 2023 will be held at the end of 2023, there is still no information that it will not be pushed for another year.


The last words we had heard about Minecon 2021, were about the new upcoming updates and the most important thing was the mob vote.

Without hosting the Minecon live, people were still able to vote for their favorite mob and get it added in the next update.

Spoiler alert! For those who haven’t heard or seen, the winner of the mob vote was the Alley.

Where will be the Minecon 2023 held

Since there is no new information about postponing and hosting Minecon 2023, Microsoft left us with the latest details and location for the event.

The Minecon 2023 will be hosted in USA Orlando FL, but we still have no idea of the date. The only information they gave out was that it will be at the end of the year.

By our knowledge, the Minecon may be hosted in November, but Covid-19 is still around, so the update on the exact day will remain a secret until everything is secure.

Minecon 2023 Ticket Prices and Prizes

Except not knowing the exact day of the Minecraft event, we do know that the tickets will be soon out for sale and people can buy any of these packages.

  • 3 Day Diamond for $300
  • 3 Day Gold for $225
  • 3 Day for $165
  • Friday $60
  • Saturday  $60
  • Sunday $60

Now every ticket has different bonuses but all of them will include a pass to the event and also the newest Minecraft cape, which can be added to your Microsoft account.

The Minecraft cape is given only to attendees of the Minecon and this happens when the staff scans your ticket.

You can’t simply purchase a ticket and get the cape, so you will need to actually attend the event, otherwise, your code will be invalid.

Rules in the Minecon 2023 Event

So if you have bought a ticket for Minecon 2023, you will need to know that there is a set of rules that needs to be followed, or you will not be able to enter it.

You need to be 16 years or older, in order to access the Minecon. If you are below the age of 16, you will need a parent or guardian otherwise, you will not be able to enter. Child care services are not provided at the Minecon, so you need to be fully aware.

Animals are not permitted in the Minecon, so if you intend to take any animal with you, the access will be denied.

If they catch you with an animal in the Minecon, you will be requested to leave without any further notice.

Where can I find Minecon videos if I cannot go to it?

Those who are unable to attend the Minecon will be able to watch live streams on any of the streaming sites, such as Youtube, Facebook, Twitch, and others.

Microsoft allows anyone in Minecon to make stories and videos or to simply take pictures of the Minecon and share them in public with others.

If you want to watch Minecon from Microsoft’s eyes, you can watch their streams, which are live recorded on their official Facebook, Youtube, and Twitch channels.
