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 eighth 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. Usually we have over 200 Koi entered and over 100 Goldfish.
We are honored this year to host the ZNA America Chapter Presidents and the ZNA Judges Seminar open to the public by limited special registration. Contact Henry Culpepper.
Show Hours: Fri. March 8 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.; Sat. March 9 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sun., March 10 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Free admission.
The show is sponsored by four central clubs including the Florida East Coast Koi and Water Garden Club, Orlando Koi and Pond Club, the Rainbow River Koi Club, the Gainsville Koi 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 websites
