21 Jul 2014

Posted by Reef_Tank_Greg in News and Announcements

We are proud to inform all of you our area is having a great fall frag swap! Steve Tyree's Coral Farmers Market is doing a new "Pro Tour". The vendors involved select the cities on the tour and one of the cities chosen for 2014 is New Orleans! Everyone made a great impression upon them with Fragniappe!
Bayou Reefkeeping will be participating as the region's primary hobbyist organization with a booth at the CFM along with exclusive rights for conducting a raffle! There will be around fifteen total booths, most of which are coral vendors.
 Bayou Reefkeeping is also happy to be able to offer a great service to the Coral Farmers Market attendees! Make sure you stop by the Bayou Reefkeeping booth to experience the BRK Coral Coat Check Service!

BRK Staff members will be ready with insulated boxes of different sizes, to check and hold your purchases for you, while you are free to roam the event floor. Once you're ready to go, come back by and exchange your ticket for your insulated box of corals, ready to go!

That's not all, more information to come! Stay tuned!

Here are some further details!

Announcing Fragniappe 2015 - Saturday, March 7!

11 Jul 2014

Posted by Reef_Tank_Greg in News and Announcements

Bayou Reefkeeping is thrilled to announce Fragniappe 2015, the Frag Swap with a little something extra! Once again the event will be benefiting a local charity and it will return to the Northshore Harbor Center.






Date: Saturday, March 7, 2015

Time: 11:00am to 5:00pm

Location: NorthShore Harbor Center





Based on vendor surveys, we expect almost all of last year's vendors to return for Fragniappe 2015! We are also expanding the exhibition space to allow for better traffic flow and to allow for around five more vendors.



Further details will be provided in the upcoming months!!!




Save the Date!!!!



As if that's not enough, stay tuned for information on a great Fall Frag Swap involving national vendors coming to New Orleans in early October!
