Mariposa County Fairgrounds
The Spring in Mariposa is an ideal time to hold the annual Gem and Mineral show. The dates for 2019 are Apr.13 and 14, 2019.
The “Mountains of Minerals” show serves as a focal point to share mineral specimens from world-wide locations. Dealers from far and wide gather to share their knowledge and stock of minerals, speakers give presentations on rock and mineral topics, and demonstrations of lapidary techniques are show highlights.
Hosts of the show:
- Mariposa Gem and Mineral Club
- California State Mining and Mineral Museum, a California State Park
- California State Mining and Mineral Museum Association, a non-profit membership organization under contract with the California State Parks and Recreation Department
This show is usually the only Gem Show in California at that time. Mariposa is very near the geographic center of California, convenient to central San Joaquin Valley and Yosemite National Park.
This will be the 19th annual show, which takes place at the Mariposa County Fairgrounds, on historic Highway 49, two miles south of the town of Mariposa, or 30 min. North of Oakhurst. Admission is $3 for adults, 12 and under are free. Parking is free! Show hours are Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
