About our show...

"The Orlando Show," as it is known in koi circles, is one of the largest judged koi shows in the Eastern U.S., drawing entries from across the country. The goldfish show, now in its 10th year, has become the largest goldfish show in the country. In addition to the judged shows, there are over 35 vendors from across the nation with koi, goldfish, pond supplies, aquatic plants, garden art and more. For the 2022 show over 200 Koi were entered and there were over 100 Goldfish.  

Show Hours: Fri. March 10 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.; Sat. March 11 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sun., March 12 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Free admission.

CFKS is sponsored by four central Florida koi clubs including the Orlando Koi and Pond Club, the Rainbow River Koi Club, the Gainesville Koi Club, and the Florida East Coast Koi and Pond Club, and the ZNA Southern Koi Association. These member clubs incorporated the show as the Central Florida Koi Show Society, Inc. Click on club logos at the bottom of the page to visit club web sites. 

Our 2023 Koi Show judges  This year we have three Certified AKJA judges. Each judge will mentor a prospective judge as follows: Troy Head with Katy Shanafelt, and  Bobby Wicker with Kaitlin Korf, and Luanne Porter with Chad Bishop.
