It has been almost 10 years since the last Geocaching Block Party, hosted by Geocaching HQ, in quirky Fremont, WA.  With the 25th anniversary of geocaching, we invite you to join us as we celebrate, take a stroll down memory lane, and thank GCHQ for all they do for us. 

The main event takes place on Sunday, February 2, 2025, from 8am to 2pm, but the fun lasts all week.  Any down time can be spent finding some of Yuma’s amazing geocaches.  Even in the winter, you can count on warm, dry weather for perfect geocaching conditions!

BLOCK PARTY ITINERARY 

Main Stage:

You'll want to check out our Main Stage throughout the day.  We start the day with an opening ceremony, and end with awards and the closing ceremony.  We are organizing panels of speakers at the beginning of each hour to talk about what they do for geocaching and give you the opportunity to ask questions, and on the half-hour we will have guest speakers talking about geocaching's past (or future).  We'll even have an open mic time for you to tell your stories so you won't want to miss it!
