Tucson Gem Show Downtown Map Parking and Shuttles - Revised for 2020


Parking Downtown Tucson

Before heading out to your first show, locate the closest parking/shuttle area beforehand. The largest parking lots are the Downtown Shuttle and Parking hub located at 201 S. Linda Ave., and the large parking lot at the Kino show located south of downtown Tucson.

Most of the shows located south of downtown have their own parking, like G&LW or JOGS. The shows on Oracle drive also have their own parking.

There are four main public shuttles: 

Downtown Gem Loop - takes you to all the centrally located shows
Mineral and Fossil Loop - takes you to the shows along Oracle drive
Kino Gem Loop - takes to the shows south of downtown (ie. Jogs, G&LW shows)
Casino del Sol Express - takes you to the large show located southeast of the city (ie. Colors of the Stone show)
