"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. For the 2019 show 240 Koi were entered and there were 105 Goldfish. 

Seminar presentations on koi, goldfish and ponds are conducted all day Saturday beginning at 9:00am. Show Hours: Fri. March 13 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.; Sat. March 14 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sun., March 15 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Free admission. (Seminar series on Saturday is $10 for the day.) 

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.
