MIDWEST GEOBASH IS BACK FOR ITS 18th YEAR!
Join us for FIVE INCREDIBLE DAYS of Fun, Friends, and Fellowship July 20-24, 2022 at Fulton County Fairgrounds in Wauseon, Ohio
Often imitated, but never duplicated - MWGB has become the must-do social event in the Geocaching world since its inception as a casual camping gather in 2005 at Harrison Lake State Park in Ohio. In 2022 we're back in Fulton County Ohio near where it all started with our venue only miles from the original event location.
The event focuses on our core principles of Fun, Friends, and Fellowship with 5 days of activities dedicated to making lasting friendships while having a great time geocaching.
Join over 2000 of your closest geocaching pals for fun activities such as on-site caching, lab caches, over 1500 on-site Geocachers camping with themed decorations, a Poker Run, and even a Treasure Hunt! See the spectacular vendors! Watch as our night-time fires are lit! Help hundreds of trackables on their way and participate in daily swag trading sessions with dozens of fellow swag collectors!
