Mariposa Gem and Mineral Club
Our annual gem and mineral show is held each Spring at the Mariposa Fairgrounds. (Unfortunately, our 2020 event was canceled in compliance with government health requirements.) We are preparing to host a modified show to be held on April 10th and 11th, 2021. Our past shows hosted more than 36 vendors offering gems, minerals, fossils, lapidary products, jewelry, and food.
Each Fall, we host a tailgate sale in the fairgrounds parking lot. For 2021, our event is planned for October (date TBD).
The club is a member of the California Federation of Mineralogical Societies.
We normally hold meetings monthly at the California State Mining and Mineral Museum located at the Mariposa Fairgrounds. Due to COVID-19 health restrictions this year, we will meet using Virtual Meeting tools. In June and December (when allowed), we hold potluck dinners at designated locations.
Yearly Membership fees: $20 singles, $30 couples, $35 families.
