    gems from around the worldThe Kino Gem and Mineral Show, which is one of the largest in Pima County, returns to Kino Sports Complex Jan. 30 – Feb. 14. 

    The show features over 220 exhibitors displaying unique wares, such as rocks and gems from around the world including rough or polished stones, minerals, fossils, geodes, and other stones. In addition, several exhibitors will also have jewelry, beads, woodcarvings, leather goods, pottery, rugs and more. The countries represented in this year’s event include Canada, Peru, China, India, Madagascar, Germany, Australia and several others. 

    Starting Jan. 30, the show will open daily from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. for both wholesale and retail trade. A food court serving food and alcoholic beverages will be open during this time. In addition, visitors can enjoy free admission and parking. Visitors should use the Kino Stadium main parking lot, located next to the show. Free gem show shuttle service will also be available from this location. 

    “Setup for the show takes nearly a month and evolves into a mini tent city,” said Reenie Ochoa, Stadium District director. “It’s a tremendous economic driver for Pima County and an excellent example of how the District has capitalized on repurposing Kino Sports Complex as a multi-use facility.”
