Minerals & Gemstone 480x104

The Tucson 22nd Street Show

The 22nd Street Show is one of the largest single shows along the I-10 corridor, and features a mammoth indoor tent with hundreds of dealers inside. This show has free spacious parking, and is in a giant heated tent. There are all different types of dealers at this show, including mineral, gemstone, jewelry, and fossil dealers, and the show is interesting to walk around. My friend Lowell Carhart is the organizer of the show and he also runs the NY/NJ Gem & Mineral Show as well as the Denver Coliseum Show. Click here to visit the 22nd Street Show website.
