This year's theme is Gemstones USA.
There will be vendors, exhibits and demonstrations all four days. Door prizes will be given away every hour (you must be present to win), and there is a grand prize for both an adult and child to be drawn at the end of the show on Sept. 3 ( you don't have to be present to win). All children will receive a free grab bag.
There will also be a special raffle for a Native American inlaid Necklace and Earring set valued at $600. Raffle tickets are $5 or 5 for $20.
There is a free shuttle from the Apple Festival at the side entrance of the Mineral and Lapidary Museum at 4th Ave. and Main St. in Hendersonville, NC.
