The Puyallup Valley Gem & Mineral Club is hosting its 2023 annual show called The Valley of Gems Show, typically held the first full weekend of June.
With vendors both inside and outside you’ll find a vast selection of rough and finished “treasures” on display. Choose from crystals, minerals, fossils, beads, findings, lapidary equipment, cabochons, geodes, and jewelry, just to name a few things to add to your collection. Inside, watch demonstrators show you “how it’s done” and see the many displays presented by PVG&MC members.
There is no admission fee, convenient parking, and disabled access. There is an adjacent covered picnic area for picnicking, walking trails through the trees and a play area for the younger rockhounds. If you don’t picnic, food is available from the kitchen in the building. Also inside, visit the kids mine on the stage, and check out the silent auction and club sales area. Take a chance in our 3pm Sunday raffle which includes 2 - $50 bills, a beautiful handmade rock lamp, rock tumblers, many pieces of jewelry and rock specimens donated by the vendors, and you don’t have to be present to win.
