DON’T MISS THE SOUTHEAST’S FAVORITE ROCK SHOW!

RockFest Member Perks at Tellus Science Museum

GEM, MINERAL, FOSSIL, AND JEWELRY DEALERS from across the country will be set up in the Banquet Room and outside on the back lawn. See rare and exotic jewelry, ancient fossils, and rocks from around the world that you can purchase for your own collection. Many dealers will even honor the Tellus member discount, saving you 10% off your purchase!

RockFest 27 at Tellus Science Museum

At our Demonstration Station, you can watch local experts show you various jewelry-making techniques. If you are looking to get in on the action, purchase a geode at the Geode Station and have it cracked open! There will also be various geology-themed children’s activities in the Great Hall.

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

While you are in the dealer showroom, be sure to register for the grand prize — a beautiful amethyst geode to be given away after the show on Sunday. Don’t worry; you do not have to be present to win.

Another way to add to your collection is at our silent auction during RockFest. There will be new specimens available throughout the day, so check back and bid often! Proceeds from the auction will benefit new collection acquisitions.

In between all the shopping and activities, you might need a break! Members can enjoy a complimentary frozen treat at the Member Hospitality table. If lunch is what you need, the Tellus Café will be serving a cookout style menu inside and at the back patio restaurant.
