Events

A heartfelt THANK YOU to all our sponsors…
You make this event possible!

We also want to thank all our vendors, everyone that donated to our raffle,exhibitors, judges and not to be forgotten… HOFA Members as well as all those that attended the 15th Ferret Buckeye Bash…you are what made this show what it is!

We are proud to announce we have a new show hall venue!  

​As some of you know, for the past 14 years, the Ferret Buckeye Bash has been held at Veteran’s Memorial Hall, downtown Columbus, OH. Sadly as of Aug. 1, 2014, Veteran’s Memorial will close and be demolished.   

​We have moved to:  
Northland Performing Arts Center
4411 Tamarack Blvd.,Columbus OH
(NE side of Columbus – off Morse Rd.)

​We are excited about this new show hall. It’s smaller than our old site but we are confident that there will be plenty of room. Parking is free, WiFi is free, nice padded chairs, 8’ vendor tables, a 12’ x 20’ projector screen in lobby for advertisements, a concession stand for food but outside food is allowed and 2-large projector screens in show hall for posting ferret numbers being called.  Easy to find location, just off Morse Rd., 2 miles East of I-71 North and 3 miles West of I-270 on Eastside.

SEE YOU IN AUGUST!
NOTE: 
All ferrets brought into the show hall MUST show proof of a current rabies and sign a waiver stating distemper vaccination is current. Must also have proof of current Aleution Disease Virus (ADV) results within 1 year of show date.
ADV Policy and where to get your ferret ADV Tested
​Franklin County REQUIRES ferrets to have a current rabies vaccination to be legal.

Thanks to the enthusiastic support of the ferret community, the Ferret Buckeye Bash continues to be the largest ferret show in the USA. This year will be our 16th year in Columbus, Ohio.
