East Coast Gem, Mineral and Fossil Show with over 200 vendors is August 7-9 at the  Better Living Center at 1305 Memorial Avenue in West Springfield, Massachusetts. Admission is $6 and kids 12 and under are free with an adult. $5/day to park.

August 7 and 8 – 10am to 6pm

August 9 – 10am to 5pm

About 200 retail and wholesale vendors are on-site who sell mineral specimens, fossils, gemstones, beads, jewelry, meteorites, crystals, geodes, decorator items, and lapidary supplies and equipment. One of the highlights of the show each year is a special exhibitor showing off his or her finds.

Every child attending the show gets a free mineral specimen, and kids of all ages can select an inexpensive geode and watch as it is cracked open to reveal never-before-seen crystals. For a small fee, kids can pan for gemstones and fossils.

Visitors of all ages can bring their “unknown” minerals for free identification. And for those who want to continue their learning about nature’s geo-treasures, there are free lectures on topics related to rocks and minerals offered every day.
