Societies invite Dealers to shows to feature selections of rocks, minerals, gems, jewelry and associated specialties. Shows can also offer demonstrations, displays and activities for you to enjoy.  If you want to learn about the hobby, be sure to visit a show in your community.  It's an excellent time to meet members and find out what the society or club has to offer.

CFMS invites its Member Societies and Clubs in good standing to post their shows or events on this page.
(Events sponsored by other organizations will NOT be posted).
