The Fiesta of Gems Show is a free educational event for the community which provides fossils, gems and mineral exhibits, demonstrations, and children’s programs. We also offer jewelry making classes, gem, mineral dealers, tools, and books sales. This event helps several community programs in Culver City and helps to educate and inspire elementary students in Earth Science activities. It also enables the Club to provide donations to the El Rincon School, to the Culver City Boy Scouts, Troop 113, and the Culver City Senior Center.
Our Fiesta of Gems Show offers over 35 gem and mineral dealers from California, New Mexico, and Arizona who will sell minerals, gems, slabs, cabochons, beads, and jewelry findings. The Culver City Rock and Mineral Club members will exhibit gem and mineral works of art, jewelry pieces, and private collections of gems and minerals. There will be classes throughout the weekend introducing various techniques of jewelry making.
