The annual Gem and Jam Festival is held each year during the world-renowned Tucson Gem, Mineral and Fossil Showcase making this special weekend each year the perfect pairing in music and art for gem enthusiasts and festival goers of all kinds. While for many music remains the main attraction, the Gem and Jam Festival also features artists of all mediums including visual performers, live artists, arts and crafts along with workshops and lectures, food vendors and high-end art galleries. Over 55,000 people are expected to gather and visit Tucson, AZ from around the world during the 3-week Gem and Mineral Show which has motivated the organizers of the Gem and Jam Festival to provide a unique atmosphere- celebrating the art and ethos of the Gem and Mineral community along with entertainment and visual arts. Multi-day passes, car camping, glamping, and RV camping are available and are a great way to get the whole festival experience!
