Quartzsite Hobby, Craft and Gem Show


2010 Booth Location: The Big Tent – Center Aisle ); Quartzsite, AZ

Quartzsite, in western Arizona, just 20 miles east of the Colorado River on I-10, Quartzsite has been a rockhound’s paradise since the 1960s. These days, it is also a mecca to well over a million visitors each year, most of whom converge on this small town in a wave of RVs during the months of January and February.



Show Booth


Join us at Quartzsite when at this time of the year, 2,000 vendors of rocks, gems, minerals, jewelry, fossils combined with the Arts & Crafts, Hobby items, and handcrafted merchandise displays with everything imaginable. This all helps to create one of the world’s largest open air flea markets in Quartzsite.

More than 200 exhibits of unique clothing, jewelry items plus many other interesting products will be on display. There will be demonstrations of do-it-yourself craft items and many products for the home and kitchen.

Since 1998. 30,000 sq ft. of exhibition area filled with vendors displaying hobbies and crafts along with rocks and gems, seminars and more.

In 1998 the promoters decided to add a second show to their calendar and the First Annual Quartzsite Hobby, Craft & Gem Show was born. The Craft Show shares the same, beautiful 30,000 sq. ft., fully carpeted show facility that the RV Show has enjoyed since back in 1984.

The Craft Show is now being referred to as “RV SHOW II” as the attendees are primarily RVers. If you cannot make the huge RV Show you can see an awful lots of RV and travel related exhibits plus 100’s of hot rods and classics during the Craft/Car show.



The Big Tent


In 1997 the “BIG TENT”, as the show had become known, moved across the freeway to it’s present home, just 1/2 mile South of I-10 on Hwy 95. ( now 700 S. Central) The new 20 acre facility, a former dry campground, was just what the doctor ordered for the expanding show. At that time in Quartzite, parking was almost impossible to find.

With the new Quartzsite Sports, Vacation & RV Show Show Grounds, the show was able to offer over 15 acres of public parking and the promoters, Kenny King and Mal Mallory, made the decision to offer their parking FREE to the public, while many other of the shows in town were already starting to charge to park.
