For the first time since 2019, the Oregon Jamboree's not the only rock extravaganza in town. 

That's because, following a two-year COVID-19 hiatus, the (very) long-running Sweet Home Gem & Mineral Show is back in full force. 

This 72nd edition is scheduled to run from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, March 26, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 27, inside the Activities Gym at Sweet Home High School, 1641 Long St. This year features a silent auction for various rocks, plus a raffle and snack bar. Admission is 50 cents, but children 12 and under are free when accompanied by an adult.
