Rock & Gem Victoria event concept

Love gems? Love rocks? Love everything about both? Then you’re going to love this Victoria event! The Rock & Gem Show, held by the Victoria Lapidary & Mineral Society, is being held this March with a twofold purpose: one, to earn enough funding for their non-profit organization as well as their lapidary workshop centre, and two, to share and spread awareness with Victoria’s community about earth science and mineral/rock collecting.

Highlights of the event include refreshments for guests, as well as several mineral-focused displays, a Spin and Win game, and interactive workshops such as gold panning, silver smithing, gem panning, beading, and more. There will also be a rock hunt, two silent auctions, and several demonstrations involving the lapidary arts. If you’re looking to share your passion for everything mineral-based with your family and loved ones, then this will be the place to be!

For those attending with mobility restrictions, there will be a time slot between 9:30 and 10:30am where attendees are encouraged to come via the back ramp. One caregiver gets in for free. Please note that all admissions listed below are cash only.
