The gem show is organized by Donna Collis, who has been involved with the event for 18 years, and Roger Frye, who has helped plan the show for more than two decades.
Started by the Grassy Creek Fire Department, for the first two years, the gem show took place where KFC and Taco Bell are now located. When Grassy Creek Fire Department merged with Altapass Fire Department to create Parkway Fire and Rescue, show organizers chose to keep the name. The show was later moved to the field across from Parkway Fire and Rescue for three years before moving to its former location at Parkway Fire and Rescue in 1990, where it remained until 2015.
The department purchased the field from Wade Hughes in January 2016 with the intent of making it the home of the new Parkway Fire and Rescue.
Parking and admission to the gem show are free and money raised goes toward new equipment for Parkway Fire and Rescue.
