It’s More Than One Show
Tucson’s gem show actually includes more than 40 different shows at dozens of locations around town, from exhibit halls to hotels and sprawling camps of roadside exhibit tents. The mix is slightly different every year, and most shows are open to the public with free admission.
The Tucson Gem & Mineral Show® packs the downtown Tucson Convention Center over the final weekend of mineral madness, pulling in thousands of treasure-hunters from around the globe. Free seminars and a Junior Education Area with hands-on activities make this show a big draw for families! Read how the Tucson Gem & Mineral Society started this show in 1955 and other gem show history here.
Not Just For Pros
While this event brings serious collectors from around the world, it’s the “cool” factor that makes it one of the biggest and best events of its kind. Thousands of people from all walks of life come to gawk at gold, oooh over opals, and dig dinosaur fossils.
Fall Gem Shows, Too
The giant Tucson Gem, Mineral & Fossil Showcase has always taken place in winter, near the start of every year, but a second show is gaining momentum in autumn.
We Rock All Year
Rock hounds and mineral mavens can find Arizona treasures and lapidary-related gifts, maps, and books any time of year at the University of Arizona Mineral Museum, Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, and other area attractions and retailers.
