Welcome to C-Mass Geofest 2019!!!
This year’s main event will be held on July 20th 12-5pm at the Westville Lake Recreation Area (125 Wallace Road Sturbridge, MA 01566). This free event is for all ages and is LEASHED DOG FRIENDLY and OUTSIDE FOOD FRIENDLY. Please join us at the event for fun, games, raffles, and to learn more about geocaching in the Central Massachusetts area.
This is the fifth annual event that is centered in the town of Sturbridge Massachusetts, one of the many towns that make up Central Massachusetts Geofest. Sturbridge has many things to offer, including antiques, flea markets/shopping, Orchards, recreational areas, fine and casual dining, breweries and Old Sturbridge Village. This particular region is a great place to visit, with 19 state forests, 3 State parks, a National Wildlife refuge and many wildlife management areas. There are also plenty of hiking trails, rail trails, ponds, rivers and places to explore outside. Sturbridge offers something for everyone to enjoy. Sturbridge alone currently has 237 geocaches, and over 1000 within 14 miles including the Smiley Face GeoArt and the Carmen Sandiego series (which has a geocoin)
There will be much to do and see at our main event, but we have also put together a fantastic lineup of pre-events, as well as post events too. You are more than welcome to come for the day, the weekend, or stay the whole week!!!
