Please be advised as of 2/28 we are still working on this show location due to some unexpected issues, so contact us to confirm location.
April 8-18- Silver Street Show at Mineral City- The Mineral City complex continues to grow with several new buildings. The total number of dealers will be over 70, and will continue to grow as additional buildings are renovated and constructed for opening in 2022. This will eventually house 100 dealers or more and will comprise the largest single venue of higher end mineral dealers in Tucson. The showrooms are permanent and allow for casual, comfortable viewing in spacious rooms. We have taken all precautions to comply with Pima County regulations for Covid prevention and assure you we are as responsible as possible in that regard.
