Hitchgathering is the name of a series of international hitchhiking gatherings held in Europe and Northern America since 2008.

Hitchgathering 2019 in August, somewhere in Europe.

Organizing the event

Communication

Checklist
  • Is there space for 100-200 persons?
  • Can we acquire drinking water somewhere nearby?
  • Are there possibilities to dumpster dive or is food cheap?
  • How easy/difficult is it to reach the place?
  • How secluded is the place?
  • Can we just stay at the place or does it belong to somebody, do we need a permission?
  • Can we dig shit pits there?
  • Can YOU be there to help organizing in the beginning?
  • What else is important?

Time

Early August, typically at first weekend. People will arrive some days earlier and many stay for like 1-2 weeks. New people keep coming and going during these two weeks. Festival sort of fades in and fades out, most busiest days having over 100 people at once.

Each year somebody suggests if the main event could be moved to June/July. Each time we come again to same conclusion: early August is the most optimal for all the students/working people to have a hitching trip. There will be smaller pre- and post-gatherings happening all the summer.
