2018 Shell Show a real show-stopper! 

Thanks to all our guests who made our 2019 Shell Show a success!

     Our 2019 shell show has now come and gone.  And, wow, what a show!  Three great days of showcasing great scientific and artistic exhibits, learning about shells at our Learning Center and Demonstration Center, and shopping to your heart's delight at the great variety of dealers.

And, congratulations to the people who won the major awards!    Click here for pics of the winners and other activities at this year's show!

The Sarasota Shell Club would like to thank the Sarasota Fair Association staff for all their great support to ensure everything ran smoothly!

And now, the planning begins for next year's show!
