Sadly, but unsurprisingly, Reef A Palooza California has been cancelled in August this year. It will now be held next August 21 and 22, in 2021.
“We are all disappointed to inform you all that Reef A Palooza California 2020 is being postponed to August 21 & 22, 2021 due to the global uncertainties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and to our concern for the health and safety of all in the aquarium hobby and its exhibitors.” Said RAP California on their Facebook page.
“We know this is a difficult situation for us all and we look forward to you all joining us for Reef A Palooza California 2021, when we are able to safely bring aquarium hobbyists together again. Thank you for your loyalty in helping us create the premiere aquarium show in the United States.”
About Reef A Palooza
Reef A Palooza is America’s largest saltwater aquarium show, being held at four venues across the country every year. It describes itself as an indoor marketplace where sellers, exhibitors and hobbyists of all types can buy, sell, trade, and showcase their products to the marine hobbyist community.
It’s still unclear as to if RAP Orlando, Chicago and New York will still be held this year in September, October and December. The Orlando show should have taken in place in April this year, but was postponed to a new venue and new date of 26-27 September.
