The ZNA NorCal club is pleased to present our 2023 show! We will be at the same lovely outdoor Wyndham Garden Hotel location.

The ZNA NorCal Koi Show has always been all about education, with an opportunity to learn and improve our koi knowledge. We invite and encourage ALL koi hobbyists, whether members of a club or not, to participate and enter their beautiful Nishikigoi into our show. This is a great way to learn koi appreciation, receive valuable feedback on your koi and share wonderful camaraderie with friends old and new.

The NorCal club members are all koi kichi who love koi and promote the hobby, share the joy of koi and make friends who share the common goal of doing the best possible job of keeping Nishikigoi. Regardless of what size pond we have or what quality koi we keep, we are all bonded together as koi kichi. We are looking forward to wonderful participation from both exhibitors and vendors, and we welcome the friendly competition from members of other clubs both within California and across the country.
