If you’re into geocaching, you are going to love our local West Bend $1000 Cache Bash. Not only is it free—it’s the premier social event for geocachers in the world. We often see people and teams come from all over the country and beyond in order to compete in these events, including a raffle, searching for new caches, looking for established caches, and more. There are more than 1400 caches in just a ten-mile radius of West Bend, making this the idea place to hold a national meeting of geocache enthusiasts!
About the Event
The Cache Bash starts on Friday, the 7th of August and continues on to Saturday, the 8th. Last year, the event saw more than 710 teams in total, making it the perfect place to connect with people that are as interested in geocaching as you are. The schedule of events includes:
- A tour of some of West Bend’s most famous or historically significant caches

- And much more!
There are simply too many activities to list here. You can see a more complete schedule on their website. In short, there is going to be a lot of fun for kids and adults alike.
