The event cache is a type of geocache that centers around a social gathering of geocachers.
"Occasionally, local geocachers and geocaching organizations designate a time and location to meet and discuss geocaching. After the event the cache is archived."
Events can range from simple to elaborate depending on the purpose of the event. Some of the more common event themes include:
- Meet and Greet
- Meet and Cache
- Flash Mob
Themes are only limited by the imagination of the event organizer(s). If popular, events may become regular events, held anywhere from once a month to once a year.
While there are a wide variety of different ways to host an event, all events fall into one of four different types of events:
- Regular Event - the most common event type.
- Cache In Trash Out - an event focused on cleaning up an area.
- Mega Event - a larger event attended by more then 500 People.
- 10 Years! Event Cache - a special type of event celebrating the 10th anniversary of Geocaching.
- Giga Event - The largest event type, Attended by more then 5000 people. One of the rarest geocaches.
