The Ohio Cichlid Association's Extravaganza is the largest celebration of cichlids and catfish on the planet. This three day event happens the weekend before Thanksgiving each year. Each year, cichlid enthusiast of all ages and experience, make the trip to Strongsville, Ohio (10 Miles Southwest of Cleveland), to enjoy a weekend of all things cichlid and catfish. Registered attendees can expect to see world class speakers, manufacturer booths, vendor booths, a large fish show (with 150+ entries), and fish being sold throughout the hotel. In addition, we offer a hospitality suite for registered attendees.
Saturday features a huge swap meet, informal awards dinner, and an auction, featuring brand new goods donated by prominent manufacturers within the aquarium hobby.
There will be a silent auction of fish and tanks, including a 75-gallon and two 40 gallon set-ups. The family-friendly weekend culminates in an awesome fish auction on Sunday, when over 1,000 bags of cichlids and catfish are sold. http://www.ohiocichlid.com/extravaganza/extravaganza-info
