Bienvenue à Geocoinfest 2019! Geocoinfest is a traveling Mega event celebrating geocoins, tags, and trackables and has made it's way to celebrate in Louisiana. This is an indoor event that is set up similar to a trade show where you will be immersed with activities, educational opportunities, and keep on top of the latest geocaching trends aimed at geocachers, families, and collectors.
Travel just under an hour southwest of New Orleans and you will find yourself immersed in the mysterious swamps, beautiful bayous, and miles upon miles of bountiful coastal wetlands of Houma--Louisiana's Bayou Country. Houma is also home to Louisiana's first and only official GeoTour! Whether it's exploring the outdoors, dining on delicious authentic Cajun cuisine and fresh seafood, or enjoying a Friday night of dancing to local music, when you visit Houma, you won't be short of ways to "laissez le bon temps rouler."
We are proud to be the host city of Geocoinfest 2019. Our exciting itinerary of events will include an exciting Mardi Gras experience, alligator encounters, delicious cuisine, and more! Be sure to check back for more details as GCF2019 approaches.
