2021 DGMS Volunteers
The 2021 Denver Gem and Mineral Show will be at the Colorado Convention Center from September 16-19, 2021 in downtown Denver as part of the Hardrock Summit and Evolution Show. Volunteers will receive free admission to the Convention Center and free parking in the adjacent parking garage on the day(s) they volunteer. In addition, your volunteer badge will also get you into the Sparkle and Joy Show at the Denver Sheridan Hotel (September 18-21). A free shuttle bus will run between the Convention Center and Sheridan Hotel. The Sparkle and Joy Show is a wholesale show, so you will not be unable to purchase anything from dealers if you do not have a business license, but you can still look.
The volunteer positions and descriptions for the Denver Gem and Mineral Show and Evolution Show are below. Please check which day(s) you can work and what you would like to do. You can select more than one position during the day and we will work out specific times next month. A detailed schedule with specific days and hours will be prepared in August for those volunteers that have signed up. Thank you!
