The Main Event

July 16th 2022

Memphis TN

Join us for a great geocaching event at Shelby Farms - the largest urban park in the United States. We have a full day of geocaching fun planned to include vendors, and one of a kind ACADEMIES. Get your WILL ATTEND submitted so you can be updated on all of the latest news as it unfolds. 




Challenge Academy

This event will be a challenge style competition with something for everyone. This will really get you moving. Download the passport here.

Gadget Academy

Ever wanted to publish one of those great gadgets that rack up the favorite points. Everyone who attends this breakout session will walk away with a fully functional gadget cache of their own creation. This event will be led by none other than Behind the Cache and Bounce Bounce

At package pickup, you will be able to select your Gadget Academy Session and when you show up for that session we will check you off the list so you have a reservation ahead of time!

The Gadget Academy is going to be building an incredibly cool gadget cache and that is the one that will be covered during the session. The kit was purchased in the VIP swag packages.

There might be some available on that Saturday at the Event Store but limited and only on a first come, first serve basis.

Puzzle Academy

Have you ever wanted to solve that puzzle on your map that's staring back and is begging you to come find me?  Join the famous "puzzle boys" to help you tackle that puzzle cache and maybe even inspire you to put out your own for others in your home area!

Every great MEGA is only great because of the volunteers who make it an awesome experience. In keeping with our theme, we have the best Roadie Manager around and she is building the best road crew around. Come join the crew, it's rewarding to help and you do get some unique items that only the Roadies get to have for just a little bit of your time.

At 4,500 acres, Shelby Farms Park is one of the largest urban parks in the country! Located in Memphis, Tennessee, the Park is both a vibrant community hub and a retreat from the hustle and bustle of urban life. 

Public parks like Shelby Farms Park play an important role in creating a just and equitable community for all, and everyone is welcome here! Whether you play the Park on foot, on wheels, in the trees, in the open or on the water, Shelby Farms Park has something for everyone.

Shelby Farms Park features more than 40 miles of trails, both paved and unpaved, that are popular for walking, biking, running and hiking. The Park's trail network includes Shelby Farms Greenline, an iconic 10.65-mile paved cycling and pedestrian trail that connects the heart of Memphis to the heart of Cordova through Shelby Farms Park.

It's also home to a herd of buffalo! Learn more about our most iconic residents here!

Kids can play and discover all sorts of fun at the award-winning Woodland Discovery Playground and make a splash at the Water Play Sprayground

There is even fun to be had for four-legged friends! Dogs are welcome to explore the Park's trails (on-leash, leash in hand at all times) and to visit The Outback for off-leash fun! 

If you work up an appetite, grab a quick snack in the Lake's Edge Gift Shop, or head to one of the local restaurants located in the Park!
