How to host an event

  1. Read the FAQ and Tips for hosting an event.

  2. Up to three months before your event, Submit your Event Cache on and wait for it to be published by a Volunteer Reviewer. Your event must follow the geocache hiding guidelines.

  3. After your event is published, submit the GIFF Event Form to Geocaching HQ (form will be posted August 2019).

  4. The GIFF team at Geocaching HQ will notify you by email when your event is approved. This may take up to two weeks.

  5. Approved events can be seen on a mappable list of Events (posted August 2019).

  6. Get creative and add some fun to your event. Then it's time to host!
