Door Prizes!

All paid attendees receive a Door Prize Ticket on entry to the show. To be eligible to win door prizes, complete the Door Prize Ticket and hand it in at the Information Desk just inside the entrance to the show. There will be at least one door prize drawing made every hour throughout the show. Prize winners will be announced over a PA system as names are drawn throughout the show. There's no charge for your first entry, but you must be present to win and claim a door prize when ticket numbers are announced. Sorry, only one door prize ticket available per paid show entry.

Wine Tasting At The Show!

The SFGMS is Proud to "Pair" With Mineral Wines!


When we learned of Mineral Wines we were intrigued by an obvious connection to a passion shared by most of our members - the wonder of nature's display of the elements as expressed in the mineral world through unique crystal formations and combinations. When we tasted Mineral Wines we were thrilled to discover a delightful expression of such passion as translated through their very fine cuvees honoring the 'rare and beautiful' - in both wine and minerals. So pairing with Mineral Wines for our Diamond Jubilee seems a "natural."

Exhibits

Dozens of exhibitors will display their collections of rocks, gems, minerals and crystals, jewelry and lapidary work. This year's theme "All that Glitters" promises to provide many exhibits with spectacular and valuable displays. Some exhibits will illustrate activities of members and skilles learned in SFGMS classes.

Gem, Mineral and Lapidary Dealers

There will be also dozens of rock, gem and jewelry vendors offering everything from rough lapidary and gem materials, to fine specimens, to beautiful and unique jewelry that you'll never find at the mall. Many offer books and tools for those wanting to learn about lapidary arts and jewelry-making. Don't miss this once-a-year chance to obtain your hearts desire at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco!

Demonstrations & Lectures

There will be live demonstrations in lapidary arts and jewelry fabricating techniques, and free lectures with renowned experts on many topics of interest in the gem and mineral world!
