Welcome to the Michigan Koi & Pond Club Website

The purpose of the Michigan Koi & Pond Club is to promote the keeping, appreciating and exhibiting of Koi, also known as Nishikigoi, as well as water gardening as a hobby. The Club engages in educational activities related to our hobby and strives to disseminate information to our members and to the general public.

The MKPC was founded in 1996 and continues to meet monthly from March through November. We strive to provide an array of topics and educational activities that are both interesting and useful for our members whether a newcomer to this hobby or an experienced pond keeper. Monthly newsletters are sent to our members from March through October. Our Pond Tour is an annual event for us and is located in a different city each year within the tri-county area around Detroit. In 2012, the MKPC held its first Koi Show which has now become an annual event.

Meetings and events are generally held the third Saturday of the month, usually at 1 pm. Please visit the Upcoming Events section for more information on our next meeting.

We appreciate your interest and encourage newcomers to contact us if you have any questions.
