Parrsboro Rockhound RoundupPLEASE NOTE:  Due to the COVID19 situation, the NS Gem and Mineral Show Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the event for August 2020.  We are concerned for people's safety and feel that crowds will not be gathering by then.  We hope all our friends stay safe.  Looking forward to 2021 being a healthier year.

Since 1966, the Nova Scotia Gem and Mineral Show has been held in the Town of Parrsboro, Nova Scotia, Canada.  A showcase for geological treasures, and with over 30 high quality exhibitors of spectacular gems, minerals, jewelry and metalwork, the Nova Scotia Gem and Mineral Show is a very popular family event.

The gem and mineral displays, and specimens for sale, are some of the finest in the Maritimes.  A weekend of workshops, geological events and demonstrations let you experience what it's like to work with gems and minerals, or shape a metalwork design.  Pan for gold and much more!
