Message from the board.

Dear koi enthusiast,

As everyone knows, COVID-19 has prevented the 10th Belgian Koi Show from taking place in May 2020.
But BKS is not disappearing on the horizon, and in the meantime we are again busy with the preparations for next year.

So: put a thick circle around the 8th and 9th of May in the calendar of 2021, because then – finally – the tenth BKS will take place in Merelbeke !!
Of course it remains uncertain how the COVID story will unfold .. but BKS will not hold back, and so there is a plan B. So: if the show cannot take place in May 2021, it will continue in September! Namely September 18 and 19, 2021: so put another circle on the calendar, and especially BE THERE!

See you next year!

On behalf of the entire board,
Yours sincerely,

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!

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!

I’ve been the first time at Belgian Koi Show about 3 years ago.
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!
