Our 2023 River of Gems show was a tremendous success, thanks to all of our show vendors, volunteers, guest speakers and demonstrators, and especially to the 4000+ attendees who came over three day, bringing for their enthusiasm for rocks, gems and minerals. We truly cannot do this without everyone’s support.

Those who participated in our live auction or purchased raffle tickets helped to raise nearly $3000 for our scholarship fund, which is available to students who want to study geology or related science at the school of their choice. Interest students may download application information here.

Join us in August for our End of Summer Show, August 18–20, 2023 at the Polk County Fairgrounds, outdoors and in building C.
