Message from the board.
Dear koi enthusiast,
In 2020 our 10th Belgian ZNA Koi Show will take place at a different date and location.
The reason for this is that next year is European football again in June. We are confronted with football every two years and that is not good for our number of visitors.
That is why we have decided to change the date.
The best available date is for us at the beginning of May, but it may still be cold at night. We do not want large temperature changes between day and night.
Because we want to provide Koi with the best possible care, we have decided to look out for a large hall with natural light.
They are scarce. In Merelbeke we have found one with good conditions.
The central location is also nice.
Hence our move to the municipal halls of Merelbeke.
We hope to see you all there again.
With best regards,
The board of the BKS
Koi Competition with international Jury
This fair takes place in the Municipal Halls of Merelbeke where the most beautiful Koi are shown and go home with different prices, even Koi that cannot be seen anywhere else, except on this show !

The Belgian Koi Show has also been known for years for the extremely high quality of the exhibited Koi. The most beautiful examples of Belgium, the Netherlands and France can be seen at the show.
In addition to the competitive element, the Koi show is also about bringing together the Kooi enthusiast and hobbyists of all kinds of allooi. It is a place to meet each other in common interests, and a place to gain a lot of knowledge and information about the pond and garden events. This is due to the presence of exhibitors who bring a lot of knowledge, expertise and material, ready to release to the general public, ranging from filter material, test kits, Koi food, etc. Bring the possibility to buy bonsai, plants and art for the garden, and everything is available to create a perfectly rotating pond, which also looks very beautiful too!

“I have been visiting the Belgian Koishow (s) every year since 1998 and I must say, especially in the last ten years there has been a significant increase in the quality of the fish in the competition. The range of sales stands is also very varied. In short, the Belgium Koi Society Koi Show is more than worth a visit!”Toën Feyen (Nl)ZNA Certified Judge
“Top show, pleasant atmosphere with top competition kois !!! A must for every koi enthusiast in Belgium!”Chris van Cleemput (B)Visitor
“A nice experience to help with the construction and also the show itself, where you get to know a whole lot of new and fun people with whom you can share your koi and pond experiences. Since you have never learned about koi! You will also see beautiful fish swimming in the barrels that are certainly worth a closer look! Certainly the fish that you would otherwise hardly see or not see are definitely worth it! I am also happy to help with this show!”Jurgen Briers (B)Volunteer and Visitor
“I’ve been the first time at Belgian Koi Show about 3 years ago.Andrea Zanchin (I)Deelnemer & bezoeker
I knew that koi hobby was popular in the middle of Europe but I didn’t know how to expect, in particular from a little country like Belgium.
When I arrived to Hasselt and I saw the location, my expression has been like…WOW! The green park and the japanese garden in the vicinity are a perfect context for a koi show, and also the stands and vats arrangment are really well located. The level of koi for the contest is the highest that I’ve seen in Europe and as well the organization of the event. Good food, drink and friendship make the rest.
If I have to decide one koi show to visit in Europe, I have no doubts…BELGIAN KOI SHOW!”
