Planning Your Tucson Gem and Mineral Show Excursion

The annual Tucson Gem, Mineral and Fossil Showcase is one of Tucson’s most famous and beloved institutions. Every year, thousands of people flock to the show, which typically takes place in January and February. In 2020, the show is scheduled for February 1-16. Whether you’re new to the show or a seasoned attendee, here are some ways to ensure that you get the most out of your visit.

Decide which shows you want to attend.

The Showcase actually consists of multiple exhibitions, which are located all across the city of Tucson. Most of them are free and open to the public. However, you will need to decide which ones you want to go to. The fastest way to do this is to check the show’s official mobile site, which includes a list of all of the different exhibitions and where they are located.

Determine how you will get to the exhibitions.

While you can reach any of the exhibitions by car, parking can be difficult to find in many areas on busy days. Fortunately, Tucson has a number of public transportation options, including a bus that covers the entire metropolitan area and a streetcar that provides quick transport within the Downtown area. Check out the Showcase’s official site for a handy list of transportation options, including taxicabs and rental cars.

Decide on a budget before visiting the exhibitions.

It’s a smart idea to decide how much you are willing to spend at the Showcase before you attend, so that you don’t end up buying more than you meant to. You may also want to visit an ATM prior to going to the Showcase, since some of the dealers at the show may be cash-only. It’s a good idea to spend some time looking around before deciding on a purchase, as there are numerous items to choose from!
