Buena Vista Rodeo Grounds (Gregg Dr.)
August 11-14, 2022 9 am – 6 pm daily
Come visit The Buena Vista Contin-Tail (Continental Tailgate) Gem and Mineral show takes place in the beautiful valley of Buena Vista, Colorado at the Rodeo Grounds just outside of town. This year’s show will host over 100 vendors from all over the county and even the world! Almost every vendor that attends the show has a fun story to tell about collecting or making their own inventory.
Meandering in and out of every tent to view the available wares is always a fun time. Pretty much everything you could think of related to the lapidary arts, minerals, gems, and even handmade jewelry is available for purchase at the show. It is by far the largest outdoor mineral show in Colorado and second only to Quartzite in the United States.
With free parking and free admission, you are sure to have a fun time at the show. The phenomenal view alone makes the day enjoyable as you shop in a relaxed atmosphere. After a long day of walking and talking there are several hot springs nearby where you can soak your tired feet before returning for a second round of fun the next day.
