CFMS Society & Club Show Calendar

CFMS CLUB & SOCIETY SHOWS=
This page lists upcoming CFMS Member Society/Club Shows and CFMS Conventions.

Societies/Clubs 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.  

Please use the ONLINE SHOW DATE FORM to send your information.  When you use the online form,  a copy will go to the Show Date Coordinator and be printed in the CFMS Newsletter.  A copy will also go to the CFMS Webmaster and posted on this show calendar.   If unable to use the online form, CLICK HERE for a format to use for email or mail.

Publicize your Show for Free!  We suggest that you post your show on the Rock & Gem Magazine's Show List.
Your show will appear on the Rock & Gem Magazine's online show list and, a month or so before your show date, it will be published it in the magazine itself.  Many rockhounds watch this list.
