Minefaire: The Ultimate Minecraft Fan Experience

10 a.m.-5 p.m.

Family Events, Festivals

Much like SimCity and Overwatch, Minecraft is a sandbox video game with a massive following. So massive, in fact, that it’s the second-best-selling game of all time. Minecraft invites players to create structures using various-sized cubes. Along the way there is player exploration, resource hunting, and battles. As you work on making your cube building, there are encounters to be had with things like zombies and chickens, and opportunities to jaunt off to an alternate dimension. This weekend, Minefaire will revel in all things Minecraft. There will be plenty of chances to play the game live, or try your hand at new virtual reality creations. If you prefer a dose of the real world, join families in a LEGO building session. Costumes are encouraged, and a contest will award prizes to the best getups. Vendors, workshops, Q&A talks with YouTube gamers, and other fun will round out the two-day happening. Find tickets and more info at minefaire.com.
