In 2017, the Belle Isle Conservancy hosted the first Koi Festival at the Belle Isle Aquarium. The Koi Festival is a family-friendly event that brings the community together to celebrate the Japanese culture of the Aquarium’s Koi collection. In alignment with Children’s Day, which is celebrated in Japan on the 5th of May, the Koi Festival celebrates the symbolism of the Japanese carp in its native culture and offers Aquarium visitors a chance to experience elements of Japanese culture. Activities include traditional games, martial arts demonstrations, music, and crafts inspired by Japanese traditions along with a selection of Japanese inspired cuisine.
