2024 SHOW:

After a several-year hiatus due to the pandemic, we are excited to bring back the show in a smaller, more intimate setting that truly shows off the beauty of Humboldt County and Old Town Eureka. Come see the work of dozens of talented marble makers in a beautiful location overlooking Humboldt Bay within walking distance of many hotels, restaurants, coffeeshops, dispensaries, and bars. 

Friday, February 9 Marble Makers Ball at The Glass Garage (215 C St, Eureka), 6-9pm. Music, Marbles and Fun!  Our kick-off event is a veritable “who’s who” of contemporary marble makers, collectors and hunters. This is a great chance to meet visiting artists and welcome them to Humboldt County. We will have live glass blowing demos as well as music and more! 

Saturday and Sunday, February 10-11 From 10 AM to 5pm, come to Eureka’s Wharfinger Building (1 Marina Way)  where you can meet the marble makers and see the work of glass artists from around the country. We will also be holding live glassblowing demonstrations at two nearby glass studios. The Glass Garage (215 C St) will host demonstrations in “Torch Working” as well as featuring marbles by several local glass artists. John Gibbons Glass (804 Broadway St, Suite A-1) will feature “Hot Shop” glasswork demonstrations by their in-house team of artists. One $5 entry fee per person (children 12 and under are free) will cover all three locations! 

Sunday, Feb 11  One of the most exciting events of the weekend will be Sunday’s massive 50-marble token and scavenger hunt valued at over $10,000. The Eureka Lodging Alliance is sponsoring the hunt which starts at noon at the Clarke Plaza (3rd and E). There will be 2 separate ways to participate and possibly win one of these amazing prizes. The first will be a “token hunt”. Random tokens will be hidden around the Old Town area with clues published on the Face Book page “Humboldt Hunts Marbles”. If you can solve the clue and find the token, bring it back to the Clarke Museum to exchange it for a treasured marble. The other fun and exciting challenge will be a photographic scavenger hunt (you will need digital camera or smart phone). Starting at noon, you can pick up a sheet with challenges and riddles that will lead you on a great exploration of our beautiful and historic Old Town. When you have finished the list bring it back to the Clarke Museum to have your photos checked out and possibly win one of the marble prizes. 

Come for the marbles, and stay to explore the beaches, old growth redwood forests, and rugged coastlines behind Humboldt County's "Redwood Curtain." Check out Travel Information to learn more about the area.
