Tucson Gem, Mineral & Fossil Shows: Travel the Globe Without Leaving Town

Saturday, January 14 2023 to Sunday, February 12 2023

50+ spectacular gem, mineral, and fossil shows throughout Southern Arizona during the months of January and February! See amazing wares from vendors all over the world.

Location: Various Venues around Southern Arizona

Throughout January and February, The Old Pueblo becomes home to some of the biggest gem and mineral shows in the U.S.A., with dozens shows throughout the city. These draw in hundreds of thousands of collectors, jewelers, manufacturers, dealers and visitors from around the world. 

Until now, the people who followed their curiosity, passions and professions didn’t have one place to explore both the art and science of gemology and mineralogy. Now, they do. 

When you visit the Tucson Gem, Mineral & Fossil Showcase, consisting of huge themed exhibitions spread out all over the Tucson/Marana area, you’ll feel like you’ve traveled the globe, ventured back in time, and shopped a world’s fair of treasures – all in one place. Bring a sense of adventure to this crossroads of cultures and languages. Explore exhibits filled with dozens and in some cases hundreds of vendors selling things ancient and modern that sparkle and shine for every budget and taste. You'll see why the "Gem Show" is one of the most anticipated winter events in Tucson.
