Springfield Rock & Gem Fair Spring
Every year, we hold a Gem Fair on the grounds of the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Springfield, MO.
This started out as a rock swap between members, morphed into a public sale of members’ crafts, and finally became a miniature show. Vendors selling rocks, minerals, gems, fossils, unique jewelry, used lapidary equipment, etc. set up outdoors on the church grounds. The fair is held the 1st weekend in June (June 7-8, 2024).

Springfield Rock, Gem & Mineral Show Fall
For over 50 years, OGMS has hosted a fall Rock, Gem & Mineral Show.
The Show consists of vendors and exhibits that further our club mandate to study and promote an interest in earth science, geology, paleontology, and mineralogy; study lapidary and jewelry-making art; conduct education; support youth activities; and encourage interest in earth science.
This show is held on the 4th weekend of October (October 28-29, 2023) at the Springfield Expo Center on East St. Louis Street in Springfield, Missouri. Our club is a state & federal non-profit, and the gate at the show is our yearly major fundraiser.
