Join rock collectors, gem enthusiasts, geologists, and mineral experts from far and wide at the next annual Rockhound Gemboree in Bancroft. This summer event brings together rock and mineral dealers that specialize in mineral specimens, stunning gemstone jewellery, crafts, and precious stones. With a history rich in mining, Bancroft is the perfect setting for this interesting event.

At Rockhoung Gemboree you’ll have the opportunity to speak with experts on how to identify precious stones and gems, hear talks from experts in the field, and even pan for gold.
If all this rock talk makes you hungry, take a trip ten minutes out of town to The Craftsman Restaurant in Paudash. The restaurant prides itself on home-style cooking in an at-home atmosphere – “Real food for real people.”
