The Tucson Show

Tucson Show is an annual gem and mineral show that takes place in late January and February at multiple locations across the city of Tucson, Arizona. The Tuscon Show consist of a variety of shows that are hosted by private organisations such as the Pueblo Gem & Mineral Show, Globex International Gem & Mineral Show and many others. Most of the shows are open to the public, except for certain trade shows which require registration with a business license. 

The first Tucson Gem and Mineral Show was held in an elementary school in 1955 and shortly thereafter moved to a Quonset hut at the Tucson Fair Grounds. In 1973, it moved into the Tucson Community Center, first occupying the North Exhibit Hall, then expanding into the Arena and upper Arena concourse. After the completion of the new facility in 1990, which is now called the Tucson Convention Center, the Tucson Gem and Mineral Show now occupies the Arena, Exhibition Halls A-B-C, Galleria and Ballrooms.

The Tucson Show

Near the start of every year, Tucson becomes a playground for the world of international gem and mineral trading, collecting, and treasure hunting when the Tucson Gem, Mineral & Fossil Showcase arrives. Shoppers from near and far come to hunt for jewelry, jewelry-making supplies, collectibles and treasures, both rare and bargain priced. Navigate Tucson’s largest event with this useful information for visitors, retail dealers, and show owners.

It’s More Than One Show

The Tucson show actually includes more than 40 different shows at dozens of locations around town, from exhibit halls to hotels and sprawling camps of roadside exhibit tents. The mix is slightly different every year, and most shows are open to the public with free admission.

Family Friendly

The Tucson Show packs the downtown Tucson Convention Center over the final weekend of mineral madness, pulling in thousands of treasure-hunters from around the globe. Free seminars and a Junior Education Area with hands-on activities make this show a big draw for families! Read how the Tucson Gem & Mineral Society started this show in 1955 and other gem show history here.

Not Just For Pros

While this event brings serious collectors from around the world, it’s the “cool” factor that makes it one of the biggest and best events of its kind. Thousands of people from all walks of life come to gawk at gold, oooh over opals, and dig dinosaur fossils. Find answers to frequently asked questions here.  

Pueblo Gem & Mineral Show

The Pueblo Gem & Mineral Show is a diverse gem, jewellery and mineral show in Tucson which occurs during the annual Tucson Show. Many exhibitors from the US and internationally flock the event to showcase their designer and fine cut jewellery pieces, rough and polished gemstones such as opal, amber, and pearls and minerals such as silver. 

The Pueblo Gem & Mineral Show is hosted annually for over 40 years at the Ramada by Wyndham in centre of downtown Tucson. The Pueblo show is located within the area known as "The Golden Triangle" which is one block away from the AGTA Convention Centre and TGMS Show.

Coronavirus Update

Absolute Opals & Gems Pty Ltd partakes in the Pueblo Gem & Mineral Show annually. However, due to the pandemic, the Australian Government has placed an international border closure which may affect Absolute Opals attendance in the Pueblo Gem & Mineral Show. As a result, Absolute Opals is unsure of whether they can attend the event. 

If we are successful in attending this event, visit us at the Ramada by Wyndham Tucson, in the Court Pavilion at Booth 32 & 33. See Show Layout below.
