AutCon is an annual event based loosely around the famous MineCon. As children with Autism often struggle with social settings, Autcraft allows them to generate friendships, bonds and be social without being in person. Autcon helps them one step further by having them meet ''in person'', whilst being entertained by games and activities, and work on those in-person social skills.
In 2015 the first AutCon was held in Brisbane, Australia. However small it was, AutCon was a success. Games were played, new friendships forged, barbecue lunch was provided and the members each left with a 'goodie' bag full of things to take home.
In 2016, The Second AutCon was held for the first time in Liverpool, England and was organized by SparkleTwinnie & TheHemikoWay, With help from TheDonster & DaisyBoo.
In 2017, Autcon was held in three locations, two of which were in the United States. Washington, D.C. and Atlanta, Georgia hosted these events.

Autcon was not possible to arrange because of the pandemic and following lockdowns.
Instead, it was arranged online on Autcraft. Over 100 players visited, and AutismFather livestreamed the whole event. The staff built a specific arena with lots of booths with minigames and contests.
This event was also held online due to the pandemic, with brand new arena built for the occasion.
