This page lists the events that occur on the server, outside of Build Challenges. Some large events that involve the Minecraft community but do not occur on the Minecraft Awesome! server, due to certain circumstances such as plug-in or map dependencies, might also be listed here (e.g. Minecraft Hunger Games).
An Event is usually something that gathers a decent amount of participants for the activity, although there are always exceptions. If someone is unsure if something is prominent enough, send a Private Message to KRSD on the Video Games Awesome forums to discuss it.
