Rock and Gem Show

Needs a location

Save the date now, for the Annual Grand Junction Rock Show, Sat, Sept 24, 9am-6pm, and Sun, Sept 25, 10am-4pm, at the Mesa County Fairgrounds. About 2-dozen vendors, many from out of state, will have a wide variety of rocks, minerals, fossils, gems and jewelry on display. We also setup activities that kids enjoy, and a food truck will be there too.

This event is presented by the Grand Junction Gem and Mineral Club, which has been organized for over 75 years, and has over 100 members. We typically have programs twice a month, with additional classes and field trips throughout the year.

If you are a vendor who would like to have a display at this event, send me (Steve Cable) a message, the sooner the better, and I will send you a flyer with more information.
