Saturday August 3rd at the Ishpeming Elks Club, the doors to the show open up at 9:30am and the festivities run until about 4:30pm! In addition to interesting gem and mineral specimens, there’s also going to be agates, gemstone jewelry, rock lampshades, cool mining artifacts, and even candle holders!
Get a glimpse into our area’s geology and maybe pick up some unique decorations for your home or workspace! The best part of the day: free admission for everyone! That’s right, you can visit the entire show for free, and, if you’re interested in becoming a vendor, you can reserve an indoor OR outdoor space to show off your creations!
It will be a day of fun for the whole family, and the event will also include a Kid’s Table, silent auction, fossils, and working demonstrations throughout the day! You can also take a field trip with the Rock and Mineral Club! For more information, visit their website at www.ishpemingrocks.org!
