Mariposa Gem and Mineral Club
Our Annual Gem and Mineral Show is held each Spring at the Mariposa County Fairgrounds. The 2023 show is April 8th and 9th, 2023, featuring more than 35 vendors offering gems, minerals, fossils, lapidary products, and jewelry.
Our show also features a large raffle, silent auction, geode cutting, and food.
Each Fall (normally October) we host a tailgate sale in the fairgrounds parking lot. The 2022 tailgate is scheduled for October 8, 2022!
The club is a member of the California Federation of Mineralogical Societies.
