Gem & Craft Fair:
Our annual Gem and Craft Fair
is held on the first weekend of May.
You will find vendors offering colorful rocks, slabs, lapidary items,
gemstones, hand crafted jewelry, clothing, arts and crafts, beads and
findings, woodwork, and many other hand crafted items.
The show is held at a very special site: the Historic
Kennedy Mine in Jackson, California. One of the tallest
head frames in existence today is in full view of our show. Also, a
museum is right next door. Other historic gold
mining structures and buildings remain on the property to see.
The Kennedy's giant wooden Tailing Wheels can be visited just a few
