GET READY FOR SUMMER’S BIGGEST INDOOR/OUTDOOR EVENT AT TELLUS SCIENCE MUSEUM!
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. Let your young geologist play a round of Rock Bingo to win a mineral specimen, and then customize your very own Tellus collecting bag for your specimens.
New to the event this year will be faceting, wire wrapping, and cabbing demonstrations by a few of our local experts. You can get in on the action, too! 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. While you are in the dealer showroom, be sure to register for the grand prize, a large sand selenite from Mexico to be given away at the end of the show on Sunday. No worries — you don’t have to be present to win.
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.
