Mojang has announced the dates and location for MineCon 2016, this year’s convention of everything Minecraft. Running September 24th through the 25th, MineCon 2016 will be held in Anaheim, California.

In the announcement on Mojang’s website, the Minecraft developer stated, “It’s that time of year again, time to mark off your calendars and start making plans. MineCon is coming! That means thousands of you will come together for fun (and this time even some sun) and to celebrate the Minecraft community”

Continuing, “As usual, we will have a weekend event and as usual, we will be live streaming the entire time, so even if you can’t come in person, you can still enjoy the Minecrafty goodness from the lovely comfort of home.”

As for ticket pricing and sale dates, we will just have to wait and see, but hopefully both will be coming soon.

The first MineCon was held in 2010, a year before Minecraft 1.0 was even released. The location changes every year, past convention cities including the likes of Las Vegas, Disneyland Paris, and London.

In recent Minecraft news, update 1.9, the combat update, just launched. It overhauled much of the game’s combat systems and even added the ability to dual-wield items.

Are you looking forward to MineCon 2016? Let us know in the comments.
