The Tucson Convention Center, where the Gem and Mineral Show is held, is located along I-10, roughly an hour-and-a-half south of central Phoenix and just 15 minutes away from the Tucson International Airport. You’re in a good location where traveling shouldn’t be much of an inconvenience. Besides, you’ll get a stunning view of the Sonoran desert and five minor ranges of mountains around the city.
Gem, Jam & Camp
Camping in the Arizona desert sounds like a nightmare, but luckily for you it’s winter time in Tucson. The mild weather during the day and the cool temperatures at night are ideal for camping in a Boutique setup, which comes with a mattress, linens and cozy furniture for the ultimate camping experience. If you aren’t the fancy type, your car or RV will do just fine.
Gem & Jam Pre-party
Unlike previous years in Los Angeles, the official pre-parties now take place in various locations around the Southwest. Kick off your weekend with energizing musical performances, dazzling visuals and many other activities to get you in the Gem & Jam spirit.
The lights and live art installations make Gem & Jam not only a musical but heavily visual experience. Go with your ears, eyes and mind wide open.
