Saturday June 11 & Sunday June 12, 2016
10 AM – 5 PM

Suitable for all ages.

Members: FREE
Non-Members: Regular Admission



GEM, MINERAL, FOSSIL, AND JEWELRY DEALERS from all around the country will be set up in the Banquet Rooms and on the back lawn of the museum. You will see rare and exotic jewelry, plus ancient fossils and mineral specimens from around the world that you can purchase for your own collection. Many dealers will honor the Tellus member discount, saving you 10% off your purchase!

  • There will be various geology-themed children’s activities in the Great Hall.
  • Purchase a geode at one of the demonstration tents and have it cracked open right in front of you to see what treasure may lie inside.
  • Door prizes will be given away every hour.

RockFest is also a great opportunity to have your own rocks identified. If you have unearthed something that appears to be rare or just “different”, bring it to the Mineral and Fossil ID tent on the back lawn to have it identified by our Tellus experts — including Curator Sarah Timm and Executive Director Jose Santamaria.

After all of your shopping and activities, it will be time to take a break! Members can enjoy a complimentary refreshment in the Member Hospitality area. If lunch is what you need, the Tellus Café will be serving a cookout style menu. Dine inside the Tellus Café or visit the back patio restaurant to enjoy lunch outside.
