This year’s gem show consists of more than 47 shows and 4,000 vendors. They are strewn across Tucson and most are open to the public. That includes the Tucson Convention Center, Kino Sports Complex, and the fairgrounds. Many hotels also set up can’t-miss white tents that showcase even more goodies. Schedules and locations for each show are available online.
