The show is Thurs – Sun, Aug. 15th – 18th in Woodland Park, CO. Located on Hwy 24 between Walmart and Safeway. Hours are 9:00am-5:00pm. We have over 40 vendors with mineral specimens from all over the world. Many of the specimens are self collected. We also have faceted stones, gold, silver, crystals, cabochons, fossils, petrified wood and local minerals! We have a kids area and lots of free rock for kids. Many of our vendors are artists, creating beautiful custom jewelry that you can’t find anywhere else. You can also talk to them and have them create something just for you. Friday and Saturday nights we have a rock auction that is open to the public starting at 6:00pm. This year the Gold Club will be there to teach you and your kids how to gold pan and we have a gentleman that will demonstrate flint knapping. We have food vendors and the show is free! If you don’t get enough, there is another Mineral show just up the road in Lake George Colorado. This show is put on by the Lake George Mineral and Gem club and runs Fri 16th- Sun the 18th, 9:00am-5:00pm. The beautiful Pike National Forest is right there with lots of free camping, or several wooded RV parks located right in Woodland Park, Colorado. There are also many motels close by in Manitou Springs CO. For those of you that like to gamble Cripple Creek is just up the road for fun evening entertainment!
