block party inviteJoin Us for the Geocaching Block Party Mega-Event

It’s a “Will Attend” that will fuel memories for years to come. We’re inviting the entire worldwide geocaching community to join us at the 2013 Geocaching Block Party on August 17 in Seattle. It’s a Mega-Event not to miss. This year’s Block Party weekend lasts longer, promises more geocaching fun and has plenty of events for everyone. You’ll even be able to grab a cozy spot in front of a giant outdoor movie screen for the first annual Geocaching International Film Festival (GIFF). GIFF will showcase the best videos from geocachers around the world. You and the rest of the audience will choose one lucky video to receive the “Audience Award.”

The Thursday and Friday before the Block Party, you can reserve your spot on a behind-the-scenes tour of Geocaching HQ. You’ll get to find the Geocaching HQ geocache, meet some of the folks at Geocaching HQ and see where all the geocaching magic happens.

Saturday from 11AM to 6PM, you can soak up the fun at the Geocaching Block Party. Activities include a new GeoTour near Geocaching HQ and meeting the Geocaching HQ staff and many of the volunteers that assist the worldwide geocaching community. Sound like a lot? Don’t worry. You’ll be able to refuel at the onsite food trucks. Log your “Will Attend” now, then share this new Block Party Invite video with your friends. We’ll see you there.

Still want more? Wrap up your weekend in Seattle on Sunday with the Going APE Mega-Event. The journey through a long mountain tunnel delivers geocachers to a majestic and legendary location.

Get more details on events, times, dates, vendors and more at the Geocaching Block Party website.

    I would love to attend, but it is on the opposite side of the country for me!

    We’ll plan to host The Block Party every year. If you can’t make it this year, think 2014, or 2015 or… you get the idea. Hope to see you in Seattle soon,

    Would love to attend too, but unfortunately we’re only going to be in Seattle at the end of June, for one night!! At least we’re going to be visiting the HQ :)

    How/where can I find out as soon as the dates/details for the 2014 party are released? We’ve decided we’re going to attend then for sure!

    It is always on the 3rd Saturday in August, which is International Geocaching Day. So that would be August 16 2014 :)
