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.
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.
VENDORS: Due to the smaller venue, space is limited. We are limiting vendors to maximum 2 vendor spaces and 1 table behind them. Due to the tight space, we ask you NOT bring your own tables unless they will fit within your allotted space (table 6’x2’ or less). You may be asked to remove if table is too big.
This year is our 18th 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.
We are finding it increasingly difficult to find decent pet friendly hotels for our shows. PLEASE, click on the link Show Hotel Guidelines and read carefully. Even if you are NOT showing the ferret(s) you brought with you, are purchasing an new ferret or brought any other pet with you..these guidelines apply to you.
2016 Ferret Buckeye Bash will be here before you know it!
SEE YOU IN AUGUST!
