KOI FESTIVAL

WELCOME TO THE 2020 KOI FESTIVAL!

The Belle Isle Aquarium remains closed due to the pandemic, so we are excited to bring you Koi Festival programming 

this week with the help of our partners with the Consulate-General of Japan in Detroit, Grassroots Exchange Network - Japan,
and their affiliates. It is important to us to forge ahead with our mission to protect, preserve, restore and enhance Belle Isle Park
for all, now and forever, during these difficult times. One of the ways that we are able to amplify our mission is to 

provide rich programming such as the Koi Festival. Each year we look forward to providing a cultural exchange between communities to focus on the "for all" piece of our mission. Additionally, your participation with the Koi Festival raises awareness of our work to manage the Belle Isle Aquarium and the many animals in our care, including the Koi. 

As you explore the Festival this year please take a moment to explore our site to learn more about our work, and please

 consider a donation to the Belle Isle Conservancy to help us ensure that our  mission is protected in these uncertain times.
