Tucson's Annual Gem Shows Begin Saturday

The Tucson Gem, Mineral & Fossil Showcase begins Saturday, Jan. 27, and continues through Sunday, Feb. 11. During that time, visitors and residents come to hunt for jewelry, jewelry-making supplies, bargain-priced collectibles, and rare treasures.

Shows take place at dozens of locations throughout the Tucson area. Most shows are open to the public with free admission. The showcase concludes with the 64th annual Tucson Gem and Mineral Show at the Tucson Convention Center, Feb. 8-11.

The Official Tucson Gem Show Guide app provides show locations, hours of operation, transportation options, and a guide to local dining. Park Tucson offers GemRide, a free shuttle service that connects convenient parking locations with most of the shows.
