The San Luis Obispo Gem & Mineral Club holds an annual show. The show features dealers selling a fantastic array of gems, minerals, fossils, carvings, jewelry, beads, jade, crystals, meteorites, lapidary and metaphysical items. There are demonstrations of jewelry-making and lapidary crafts.
Admission and parking are free. There are some wonderful door prizes donated by the vendors.
We try to have a food vendor providing Santa Maria-style barbecue in the outside barbecue area.
The October show coincides with the annual Cambria Scarecrow Festival, a community-wide event showcasing hand-crafted scarecrow folk art. Click the link for more information about this popular, crowd-pleasing celebration.
Note that most vendor spots are reserved well in advance, so those intested in participating should contact the club and submit their signed contract and deposit early.
