Buena Vista Contin-Tail Gem, Mineral, & Fossil Show
Visit Colorado’s Largest Annual Outdoor Gem, Mineral, & Fossil Show in beautiful Buena Vista, Colorado

Buena Vista, Colorado: During the second week in August, Colorado’s largest outdoor gem mineral and fossil show, The Contin-Tail, will be going on in Buena Vista, Colorado. Each year over 100 vendors of gems, minerals, jewelry, fossils and more set up in the beautiful valley of Buena Vista Colorado, at the Buena Vista Rodeo Grounds, to sell their wares over four days. This year the show will run from August 12th-15th, 2021 and is open loosely from 9 am to 6 pm each day.

Not only do the individual vendors have beautiful gems, minerals, fossils & handmade jewelry but they have real-time “old world” knowledge of their inventory. Many of the vendors are miners & artisans who sell what they produce & find! This is a great way to support small businesses and artisans. One could spend an entire day just swapping stories with a single vendor.

Be sure not to miss out on all the fun this year and come on out to the show. Parking and admission at the show are always free. This is very family friendly & educational outdoor event. There will be food and beverages made available by a mobile food vendor, and the scenery is phenomenal.
