Enjoying All Things Koi!!

The Northwest Koi and Goldfish Club (NWKGC) was founded in 1976.  The majority of our members reside in the Portland and Vancouver areas, but we have members from all over the USA!!

Through community outreach, monthly gatherings, hosting conventions, and our world-renowned Koi Show, the NWKGC strives to promote and foster the growth of the koi keeping hobby.

The club is affiliated with Zen Nippon Airinkai (ZNA), Koi Organisation International (K.O.I.), and the Pacific Northwest Koi Association (PNKCA)
