Event details

Announcing the GPAA Columbus, OH Gold & Treasure Show!

Due to the CDC recommendation to postpone in-person events consisting of more than 50 people for the next 8 weeks, we have made the tough decision to respect their recommendation and postpone all remaining Gold & Treasure Shows. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please understand that this decision was made with your health and safety in mind, as well as the health and safety of GPAA staff and all those in attendance. Those who have purchased advanced tickets for the remaining Gold & Treasure Shows will receive full refunds for their ticket purchases. Please allow 7-10 business days for these refunds to be processed. Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to rescheduling the remaining shows as soon as it is appropriate to do so.
Respectfully, GPAA Gold & Treasure Show Team


Home to some of the most active and well-represented chapters of the GPAA, the Gold & Treasure Show circuit wouldn’t be the same without a weekend spent in Ohio! With more than $10,000 in prizes and more than 3 ounces of gold up for grabs, come on out and show your support for prospecting and mining with your fellow Buckeyes!

See the latest from gold and treasure vendors, new equipment releases, local prospecting clubs and top-notch seminars from industry leaders. The show will feature close to 100’ of panning troughs loaded with more than three ounces of gold. The panning zone is a show favorite and a great experience for kids ages 4 to 94 to learn and refine proper panning skills from some of the best gold miners around. The best part – keep everything you find!

The fun doesn’t stop there – every show day wraps up with the Major Prize Raffle where we give away thousands of dollars in prizes ranging from metal detectors to prospecting adventures. A raffle ticket is included with every paid admission, and more are available for purchase at the prize booth. All raffle ticket proceeds go to benefit local GPAA chapters.

Got your eye on a new piece of mining equipment? The GPAA Gold & Treasure Shows are the best place to pick up that new dredge, high banker, sluice box, gold pan, you name it. Learn everything there is to know about mining equipment straight from the manufacturer. Plus, you’ll find some “can’t be beat” show pricing, not available anywhere else.

Also included with admission is the Gold & Treasure Show Seminar Series. From basic to advanced prospecting and mining techniques, the seminar series is hosted by some of the most knowledgeable prospectors and geologists in the country. 

Advanced Tickets to the GPAA Gold & Treasure Show are available for only $5. Check out the Gold & Treasure Shows event pages on Facebook @GPAAGoldShows for more information, event updates and additional prize giveaway opportunities!
