Audubon Dr., Fresno, CA 93720 Press release Written By: Rosimeri Tran – Show Co-Chair The purpose of the 41st annual Central California Koi Society koi show is to encourage koi hobbyists to exhibit their koi and network with other koi hobbyists in the area so as to broaden their spectrum of the koi and their classification. There are several Judges that travel from outside of the Fresno area from various regions to come and judge the koi, this year the American Koi Judges Association will be represented by Senior Certified Judge, David Young of Tucson, Arizona as well as candidate judge, Gerald Ellison, of San Diego, California. Some of the things the judges look at are pattern, body conformation and size. There are some enormous sized koi that are exhibited and every year the koi get bigger and bigger. The koi are all competing for the Grand Champion trophy and once they receive that award they are eligible to compete in the AKCA Champion of Champions contest.

This year there will be food trucks, a kids zone, plenty of vendors to choose from pond and koi dealers, to arts and crafts, as well as celebrity, Eric Triplett of the Pond Digger series will be a vendor and available to talk pond with everyone. Some of the things that you will see at the 41st annual Central California Koi show are different varieties of koi ranging in size from small 4”-6” to the very large and in some cases jumbo size which is 30” and above. Also there are koi vendors here selling koi and pond products, several are traveling as far away as Los Angeles as well as from the Bay area, they will have products that you would not be able to buy here in Fresno.
