A "Couch Crash" is a global invitation to visit a city to get to know the people, city, culture and Couchsurfing better. Couch Crashes are full of fun events that the local Couchsurfing community has organized in advance so you can get the most out of your time in Madison. It's also a great time for Couchsurfers to socialize and gain experience hosting/surfing.
Madison’s 9th Annual Couch Crash will take place August 24th through August 27th. Save the date on your calendar, invite your friends, plan your road trip and join this event page so we can keep you up to date.
