Mountains of Minerals Show 2021

October 30-31, 2021
Mariposa, California

This will be the 20th annual show, which takes place at the Mariposa County Fairgrounds, on historic Highway 49, two miles south of the town of Mariposa, or 30 min. North of Oakhurst.
Admission is $3 for adults, 12 and under are free, and parking is free!
Show hours are Saturday 10:00 – 5:00 and Sunday 10:00 – 4:00.

The “Mountains of Minerals” show serves as a focal point to share mineral specimens from world-wide locations. Dealers from far and wide gather to share their knowledge and stock of minerals, speakers give presentations on rock and mineral topics, and demonstrations of lapidary techniques are show highlights.

A wide variety of gemstone jewelry and rough, breathtaking mineral and rock specimens, fossils, crystals, beads and mineral related crafts of all sorts will be available from our many vendors.

World class gold and rare gemstones are on display in the California State Mining and Mineral Museum, a permanent part of the fairgrounds, open year ’round. California State Parks will offer a variety of children’s activities at the show. In addition to viewing the spectacular California State Mineral Collection, kids can go on a scavenger hunt in the museum and explore rocks and mineral crystals at the touch table. All activities and demos are free.

Complimentary copies of ICMJ's Prospecting and Mining Journal will be available.
