The Tualatin Valley Rock and Gem Club 56th Annual Rock and Mineral Show will be at the Washington County Fair Complex in Hillsboro, Oregon, Friday and Saturday, March 7-8, 2014.
Admission is $1 per person, children younger than 12 free when accompanied by an adult.
Hourly door prized, raffles, demonstrations, and kid’s activities will be all day and a silent auction will offer some exciting opportunities to win some previous rocks and minerals.
“There are many vendors and exhibitors at the show this year, and we are delighted to have so many who’ve been with us for a decade or more as we continue this tradition in Hillsboro,” says Club President Mitch Metcalf. “I’m so proud that we’ve been able to continue the tradition and that we have some of the best volunteers to help run the show, bringing their geology expertise and passion to the public.”
The annual rock and mineral show benefits the Tualatin Valley Rock and Gem Club educational activities and projects, and also go to the Rice Northwest Museum in Hillsboro, a world-class rock and mineral museum and partner and affiliate with the club.
OregonLive announced the show on March 7 in their weekend activities section.
