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

For the 10th anniversary the idea of Transeuropean Hitchgathering was created. The three main locations (Portugal, Germany, Ukraine) are to be incorporated in a series of Hitchgatherings spanning from Western to Eastern Europe, all summer long!

If you're on the other side of the Atlantic, watch out for news regarding a hitchgathering in July or August in the province of Minas Gerais, Brazil that is being organized.

Organizing the event

Spread the word

  • Tell your friends
  • Tell hitchhikers you meet on the road
  • Write cardboards with hitchgathering.org, the place and date (and maybe more) and place them at popular hitchhiking spots ... be creative and use your colorful markers!
  • Draw your own flyers :)
  • Spread the word around hitchhiking clubs and websites in your country/your language
  • Post on your hitchhiking / travel / nomad blog or website about the gathering
  • Tell your favorite hitchhiking / travel / nomad blog author to write about it
  • Organize a pre-meeting (can be early like May/June/July to raise attention and connect people)
  • Translate a ready-made article in your local language and offer it to newspapers
