Preregistered participants will be showing ferrets throughout the day. The Ferret Buckeye Bash is a championship ferret show with 4 championship rings and over 19 specialty rings.
This year is our 19th year in Columbus, Ohio. We are looking forward to another great show year!
Parking is still free as is the WiFi.
Many enjoyed the nice padded chairs and the projector screen in the lobby was fun to watch.
The concession stand had really good food but outside food is allowed. This year there is a brand new Kroger’s grocery store with a fabulous deli located right across from the show hall.
The location is easy to find, just off Morse Rd., 2 miles East of I-71 North and 3 miles West of I-270 on Eastside.
