Discover Event Caches

Meet face to face with your fellow geocachers to discuss recent finds, clean up a park, share a meal, or trade caching advice. It’s as easy as attending an Event Cache. An Event Cache is our version of a party: when a geocacher or geocaching organization chooses a time and location to meet and discuss the treasure-hunting adventure of geocaching. These events are open to all geocachers.

These fun gatherings introduce you to other local geocachers and helps build your geocaching community. You may end up with a few new geocaching partners too. Event Caches are also a great way to introduce new geocachers to your favorite hobby.

Along with Event Caches, explore Mega-Events and CITO (Cache In Trash Out) Events. An event has “gone Mega” when more than 500 attendees participate in an Event Cache. Geocachers can “go green” at a CITO Event. Geocachers at a CITO Event clean up parks, trails, and other outdoor locations.

It’s simple to find an Event Cache near you. All you have to do is visit the Geocaching Event Calendar for a comprehensive list of Event Caches around the world. You can also try using our advanced search tool. This tool allows you to search for a specific type of Event Cache in a specific location.

So now go discover an Event Cache and get to know geocachers and caches near you. Happy caching!

    My favorite part of attending events is matching names on logs to faces.

    Going to events is a good aspect of caching. You get to meet the face behind the moniker. One can get ideas for caches, information/hints on bedeviling caches, and usually good eats!
