Edmonton gem event ready to rock

March 9, 2017 by  

A special event is coming to Edmonton that will bring some sparkle to the city.

The annual Edmonton Gem and Mineral Show will be coming back to the community for its sixth year. A wide assortment of vendors will be participating, and all sorts of minerals will be available for purchase.

Both raw, and cut and polished stones will be on display, as will finished jewelry, jewelry-making supplies, fine crystal, fossils, beads and art. The public is invited to come out and browse through the offerings, and in addition to all of this, there will be demonstrations and presentations to enjoy. To thank people for coming out, door prize draws will take place every hour of the event.

More than 40 different vendors will be participating, and the organizers are accepting applications from anyone else who is interested in setting up a display. They are asked to contact CalgaryGemShow@gmail.com to submit their request. A printer will be able to supply them with branded packaging supplies and other materials that can help them to prepare their products for the show.

The show will be held from May 12 to May 14 in the Shaw Conference Centre. Admission starts at $7 each, and tickets can be purchased at the gate on the day of the event. Additional details have been made available on the event’s website.
