2021 Gem and Mineral Show Cancelled / New local shows planned for 2022

Our annual Gem and Mineral show is cancelled for Labor Day 2021.  Although New Mexico has finally reopened after the pandemic, this move occurred too late for us to get this year's show planned and ready in time for Labor Day weekend.

We are already beginning to plan for our Labor Day 2022 Gem and Mineral show at the County Convention Center and look forward to welcoming everyone back after a 2 year break!

In addition to our annual labor day event, we are planning to add a new and different gem and mineral gathering for late spring 2022, so please stay tuned for details, including vendor opportunities.
