Denver, Colorado Community Events



September each year
Annual Denver Gem and Mineral Show
Place: Denver Merchandise Mart, 451 East 58th Avenue (I-25, Exit 215)
Time: Friday, 9 a.m.-6 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sunday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Sponsored by: Greater Denver Area Gem & Mineral Council
The Denver Gem & Mineral Show, in conjunction with The Colorado Fossil Expo, offers an unparalleled view of the earth sciences and of the lapidary arts, through exhibits and dealer displays from around the world.

Minerals, fossils, meteorites, gems, beads, unusual jewelry and gift items, books, and lapidary equipment are among the items sold by 150 dealers. Crafters and scientists provide demonstrations of gem cutting, jewelry making, and fossil preparation. Displays showcase some of the world's finest museum collections. The theme for 2004 is Zeolites and Associated Minerals, and we expect many outstanding displays of these exotic minerals. A major display will feature Colorado's Patriotic Geological Symbols, red rhodochrosite, white Yule marble, and blue aquamarine. Speakers will give talks on topics relating to mining and mineral collecting.

There will be free gold panning for children, and free gem and mineral identification. Mr. Bones, a walking dinosaur, will delight children of all ages. The show, which is open to the public, provides an exciting and educational experience.

The Denver Gem and Mineral Show is sponsored and produced by volunteers from the Greater Denver Area Gem & Mineral Council, a non-profit association of ten area clubs with 1400 members. All show proceeds benefit museums, scientific research, scholarships and education. For those interested, the show is a good opportunity to get in touch with one of the local clubs that continue to foster interest in the earth sciences all year round.

Adults: $5/day, Seniors (over 62) & Juniors (13-17): $3/day, Children under 13 free with adult
