Due to the concern surrounding the coronavirus, and out of concern for everyone’s safety, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Nozomi Young Koi Show and reschedule to June 19th, 2021. All else will remain the same, same location, same celebration of koi, vendors and activities. Ryuki Narita has confirmed that he will attend and judge as planned next year. This decision was not taken lightly, but our priority lies with the safety of our koi keeping community.
We are looking at options for distanced onsite events and online events throughout the summer, so stay tuned for more information!
Pan Intercorp is proud to announce the 2020 Nozomi Young Koi Show!
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.
