Aquashella is a unique and exciting event that combines two fascinating worlds - the world of aquatics and the world of art. This two-day event is held in Chicago, Daytona, and Dallas every year, and it is a must-visit for anyone who loves fresh or saltwater fish—showcasing the beauty and diversity of aquatic life through various art forms such as painting, sculpture, and photography. The festival also features vendors selling aquatic plants, aquarium accessories, and fish. The first Aquashella event was held in Chicago in 2018, and since then, it has grown in popularity and expanded to other cities across the United States.
At Aquashella, visitors can enjoy live music, food trucks, and interactive exhibits, making it a fun event for the whole family. The main attraction of Aquashella is the stunning display of aquariums that feature a variety of aquatic creatures, ranging from small fish and shrimp to larger species like stingrays and sharks. Aquashella offers a platform for aquarium designers, fish breeders, and vendors to showcase their talent and products. The festival also features interactive workshops, educational sessions, and live demonstrations.
NEA has been to many of the Aquashella festivals, and it truly is a magical experience. Hundreds of vendors are there with their new aquarium products to showcase their beautiful salt and freshwater fish. We have had the privilege of having our own booth at Aquashella Dallas 2023 and are now invited back to run a larger booth at Aquashella Daytona this year. We are so excited to see what everyone has to offer this time around.
Aquashella is not just a fun event, but it also has a deeper purpose. The event aims to promote sustainable fish-keeping practices. By educating visitors about the importance of preserving our oceans and aquatic life, Aquashella hopes to inspire a sense of responsibility and encourage people to take action.
Overall, Aquashella is a unique and innovative event that celebrates the beauty of aquatic life through art and education. Whether you are a fish enthusiast or simply looking for something new and different, Aquashella is an experience not to be missed.
