Our Spring show, which is held at the Santa Cruz Civic Auditorium in late April, has a large variety of vendors from across the country selling finished jewelry, gem stones, lapidary supplies and rough stone, fossils, mineral specimens, stone carvings and many other things of interest to “rockhounds”. In addition there is a rock identification table, demonstrations of stone carving, cabochon making and other lapidary arts, display cases containing examples of items collected or made by club members, plus lectures on various rockhound topics. And for kids, there is a florescent mineral dark room and a children’s activity room.Admission is $6 for adults.
Our Holiday, which is held at the Live Oak Grange Hall in November, is a smaller version of the Spring show with mostly local vendors selling many of the same items found at the Spring show, but geared primarily for Christmas. Admission is free.
