Open to the public, this bi-annual show brings together over 2 dozen professional dealers from around the region, who will have all manner of items of geological origin available for purchase! Items are from all over the world, with an emphasis on regional finds, and include natural crystals, rare mineral specimens, polished rock carvings, natural gemstones and jewelry, fossils, meteorites, gold nuggets, and so much more!

Great for parents and kids looking for something to do, or for shop owners needing inventory, the show is educational and exciting, as well as a great way to pick out a special birthday or Christmas gift! My favorite is when parents sneak back around to buy what their kids wanted without them seeing!

The show is in Grand Hall 8, downstairs in the Classic Center main building, in Downtown Athens, Georgia. Plenty of room for safe browsing in this huge space! Parking is available onsite by the hour, and in downtown decks and street parking. Athens-Clarke County Transit is free, so park at the Lexington Road Park and Ride lot and spend what you save on rocks!

Tickets available at the door, cash preferred, cards also accepted. Kids 15 and under are free, adults 16+ are $7. Tickets are good for all three days, with intact wrist band.

We will be returning in Spring 2023, for the 7th Annual Show, March 3, 4 and 5, 2023, same venue! We will be adding Gold Prospecting, Prospecting Equipment, Metal Detecting, Coins, Treasure, and more!
