The World's Largest Gathering of Geocachers Comes to the Bell Buckle Green

 

The Bell Buckle Green was chosen as the venue for GeoWoodstock VII bringing this event to Bell Buckle despite tough competition from around the country. GeoWoodstock is the world’s largest gathering of geocachers. Combining a meet and greet opportunity for players from around the world with a series of classes, workshops, entertainment, a commercial venue featuring the single largest assembly of Geocaching related vendors, and appearances by legends of the Geocaching community. 

Geocaching is a free real-world outdoor treasure hunt. Players try to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, using a smartphone or GPS and can then share their experiences online. This large community often travels long distances to hunt desirable geocaches, like those in Middle Tennessee.

GeoWoodstock has grown from a small meeting into the international annual convention for the game of Geocaching. The GeoWoodstock event is a family oriented recreational gathering which started eight years ago in a small park in Louisville, Kentucky. Over the last seven years GeoWoodstock has grown from this small gathering at a local park to an internationally-attended festival that has filled state parks in Florida and Texas, a fairground in North Carolina, and a resort farm in Santa Monica, California. Over five thousand people attended the GeoWoodstock VII in Bell Buckle, Tennessee, where the event literally took over the town.
