Mark your calendar and make plans to attend the biggest koi show in the Pacific Northwest. This exciting, one day event takes place on the grounds of Pan Intercorp in Kenmore, Washington on Saturday, June 20th, 2020. This year we welcome the world’s #1 Koi Dealer, Ryuki Narita of Narita Koi Farm as the esteemed judge of our 17th annual koi show. We are honored to have his support at this year’s show and grateful for his involvement in elevating the American koi hobby.

The Nozomi Young Koi Show draws hobbyists from all over the Northwest to take part in a unique show highlighting younger, smaller koi. This style of koi show gives everyone from the entry level hobbyist to the seasoned veteran an opportunity to display their collection, participate in the fun of competition, learn more about koi, and share the beauty our hobby has to offer.
