Websites for Schedules & Guides

Visit Tucson has the complete lowdown on how best to experience the shows – especially for first-timers – including transportation, restaurant, and lodging suggestions.
Visit Tucson – the city’s official tourism bureau – is the official resource for the collection of 48 shows in 2019 called Tucson Gem, Mineral & Fossil Showcase. There are further links from this site for more details.

Here’s a website called Gem Show Central that seems to keeps the most complete list of all the shows, big and small. Contact information, locations, and notes on which shows are open to the public, to industry wholesale purchasers, and to both.
Note: this one is NOT an official Visit Tucson page, however it does list shows that start in January, ahead of the Tucson Gem, Mineral & Fossil Showcase.
