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.

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… see list and show hall layout​


Additional info:

  •  Parking is still free as is the WiFi. 

  • Many enjoyed the nice padded chairs and the projector screen in the lobby is fun to watch.   

  • The concession stand has 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.
