Tourism is the major contributor to Quartzsite's economy. The retail trade and services sectors benefit from the visitors who reside at the numerous (more than 70) mobile home and trailer parks in the vicinity between October and March. Major gem, mineral and general swapmeet shows are popular tourist attractions. The Bureau of Land Management and law enforcement agencies estimate more than 1.5 million people attend these events.
