The Western Mass. Mineral, Jewelry & Fossil show is being moved both in date and location. If you already have a show flyer for our 2016 event, please throw it away and be on the lookout for our new Show flyers already being circulated. The Show originally scheduled for March 19th and 20th at the Clarion Hotel, Northampton MA has to be moved due to an updated demolition and construction schedule at that location.

**The NEW DATE AND LOCATION is** April 16th & 17th 2016 at The Hadley Farms Meeting House

41 Russell St, (Route 9) Hadley MA. 01035

Less than 1 mile from I91North, off Exit 19 -Amherst/Hadley

This location is the former Hadley Village Barn Shops on Rt.9 in Hadley. We are very sorry for the disruption and we are working feverishly to make the transition and relocation of this event as smooth as possible.

Free Rock & Mineral Identification Offered By UMass Geology Dept.

Admission to the show is just $5 per person.

Children twelve and under and Scouts in uniform can get in free with paid adult!

Be sure to sign up for the door prize. In addition, we will have a Special Drawing to help raise funds for the club’s educational programming.

Our two day mineral show attracts people from all over New England and beyond. The trait they share in common is a love for all things related to the earth and earth science.

Each year the show has exciting new finds to be discovered! For 2016 we will have an abundant array of items from all around the world. Just like every year, our dealers will have a spectacular selection. There is always something new to find. Be sure to take a look at all the dealers exhibiting at this year’s show. Many dealers will have special items at the show, so be sure to get here when the doors open. You don’t want to miss out on a great find!

With such a wide selection of items, there will be something to suit every interest. So, whether you are just a beginning hobbyist or a professional collector, the Western Mass. Mineral, Jewelry & Fossil Show has you covered. Tables and tables of merchandise! To find all the special deals, you’ll definitely want to attend both days of the show.

Mark your calendar (for the NEW LOCATION & DATE) for the Western Mass. Mineral, Jewelry & Fossil Show

Complete show information and directions to this new venue can be found on our updated show website; and our Club web site

More than 15 years ago the WESTERN MASS MINERAL, JEWELRY & FOSSIL SHOW got me hooked on the magic of minerals. Second only to the East Coast Show it's the best mineral show in the state... Those of us who are already mineral aficionados - prospectors, collectors, artists, photographers, and all those who are blown away by their beauty and the mysteries of how they were born - would never miss this show. Even if you always thought a mineral was "just a rock" you should come to find out how much more they are than just rocks. See you there. (c: karen

I'm from Indiana, so won't be able to attend the show this year. But I know many of the vendors and club members. The Connecticut Valley Gem & Mineral Society does a great job with this show every year and the proceeds go to fund their many public awareness projects. Hi 5's to this club for the extra work they go through to make sure this will be a great experience for all the visitors
