Do you love carp fishing? Are you a beginner or an expert? Are you a static carp angler or do you prefer to be mobile? Fishing on the bottom, float or floater fishing? For every type of carp angler, Carp Den Bosch is the place to be. You will find everything that you need to help you catch carp. From rods and reels to end tackle and bait, you will find it all (and we mean all). If you cannot find it at Carp Den Bosch 2023, it probably does not exist yet! 

From Zwolle to Den Bosch

Carp Den Bosch used to be in the IJsselhallen-Zwolle, under the name Carp Zwolle, where we held the show 24 times. The last edition there was in 2020 when we decided that we needed to move to a larger hall in 2021 as Zwolle was no longer big enough to house Europe’s biggest carp show. Unfortunately, we could not have predicted that Covid-19 would halt our plans for 2 years as the world battled the virus. 

Having come through that crisis, we can bring our plans to fruition and finally move to the Brabanthallen in the city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch, which is known in Holland simply as ‘Den Bosch’. 

The Brabanthallen, which are more modern halls and much larger than we were used to, will now play host to Carp Den Bosch 2023. We will be using 24,000 m² of the exhibition space in Den Bosch, which is 4,000 m² more than we had in previous years. This still leaves room for expansion, as the Brabanthallen has up to 55,000 m² if we need it!  

20, 21 en 22 January 2023 

As ever, Carp Den Bosch 2023 will be held early in the year so that you can see all that is new and get your shopping done before your first session of the season. 

The doors will open on Friday 20, Saturday 21, and Sunday 22 January 2023 at 09:00 every day and will close at 17:00 on Friday and Saturday and on Sunday at 16:00.

27 years and still going… 

The ‘Carp’ show was first held in 1995 in Houten, we moved to the IJsselhallen-Zwolle in 1997 where we held ‘Carp Zwolle’ for the first of 24 consecutive years. 2023 will be the 27th time that we have ‘kicked off’ the carp fishing season. This is something of which we are extremely proud. By concentrating purely on carp fishing and carp anglers, the show has steadily grown to the mega-event it has become today.  

No other Carp-only event can match the size or terrific atmosphere of Carp Den Bosch. No other show is as well-known across the World as ours – the last show in Zwolle had more than 18,000 visitors from 27 different countries. Visitors from America to Russia and from Norway to Italy prove that!  

24.000 m² of carp pleasure 

In the Brabanthallen, we have the use of more than 24,000 m². This is 4,000 m² more space than we had in Zwolle. This gives us the chance to make the paths wider than before and gives stand holders the opportunity to have larger stands than previously. It also gives us the ability to reduce the number of stands that were on the waiting list.
