Quartzsite Improvement Association

Quartzsite Improvement Association (QIA) started it all years ago, in 1967 with the first "POW WOW" rock & gem show (now our biggest show on the QIA Calendar, helping to build Quartzsite to it's status of "World Famous Rock & Gem shows."

The Quartzsite Improvement Association is entirely staffed and run by volunteers. Some live in Quartzite all year, while many return from any part of North America for the "Winter Season".

There is an elected Board of Directors that reports to the Membership once a month, during the winter season. Our custodial group of volunteers literally keep the doors open!! They are in charge of being sure the building is open for the various meetings, classes, dances, etc. Then, they also make sure to stay late and close the doors for the night and clean up after a meeting, dance, etc. so the building is all set for the next day or event.

The Gold Show

Feb 11-14

The Gold Show held at the QIA displays prospecting, panning, detectors and the La Paz Co Search & Rescue Team. This incredible show is hosted by Nature's Nuggets, Miner's Depot, QIA and Quartzsite Metal Detector Club.

Richard and Dick, from Nature's Nuggets have been working on organizing this great event for months and it was really exciting to see all the Vendors and visitors come out for this show.

The show will be having lots of fun events too! Panning contents, "detecting" contests and some great speakers and special presentations during the show each day.
