Apply now for the March 1-3, 2024 event which will be the 6th annual Rockhound Roundup sponsored by the Southeast Federation Mineralogical Societies, Inc (of which we are a member.) Every year the event has gotten larger and they anticipate this year will be no exception. This is designed to be a networking event in addition to being an old fashioned Rock Swap and Sale.
Can I Participate?
The SFMS would love to have participation from all the clubs in the Federation. Any member of any of the SFMS clubs may take part. That means any of OUR members can set up a booth–and they can team up.
In some years clubs have set up a “Club Booth” and have provided information about their organization and made sales with benefits going to the entire club.
When and Where is the Rockhound Roundup?
When: March 1-3, 2024
Where: Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida. (Approximately 2 hours north of SeaBreeze Rec Center). The address is: 3076 95th Dr, Live Oak, FL 32060
How Can I/We Participate
To participate, download the application form. No deadline is noted on the form, but in general it is a good idea to sign up early.
If you want a tent, tables or chairs you do need to bring your own. Apparently you can sell straight from your truck if you prefer.
The event is 3 days, but you do not have to commit to all 3 days. The fee is the same whether you want to sell one day or for the entire event.
Tell Me More
There are lots of details about the event on the application form, including what to expect, hotels and campsites, etc.
You can also download the flier which would be great to share with others!
What if I Don’t Want to Sell Anything
You can still attend this event which is part socialization meet-up and networking and part buying and selling!
There will be Rough Rocks and Slabs, Polished Stones, Handmade Jewelry, Tools and Equipment for Lapidary Arts and Silversmithing
