Welcome to the Aquatic Expo
North Carolina’s Largest Aquatic Festival
The Aquatic Expo in Charlotte is NC’s first large-scale two-day expo which is a joint effort of CAE (Carolina Aquatic Expo), and the Carolina Reefing Community Club.
The Aquatic Expo (TAE) was founded with the goal of showcasing the aquarium hobby to the public. One of the most amazing things about the aquarium hobby is the endless possibilities for every aquarium. There are so many interesting species and pieces of decor that can be used to fill up those glass boxes, and our goal is to bring together as many of those pieces as possible. The Aquatic Expo is designed to showcase livestock that is not normally found in your average pet store. Big box chain stores do not have the facilities to keep a wide variety of livestock, and therefore many people are unaware of the abundance of options that are out there. Our goal is to bring as many of those options to the Expo as we can so that attendees can see, and buy, things that would otherwise be unavailable to them.
ONLY THE BEST

TAE seeks out the best Freshwater, Saltwater, and Reptile vendors from coast to coast. Our curated list of vendors are aquaculture facilities and businesses that are true hobbyists at heart. Over the years they have attended numerous events and always bring the healthiest and most vibrant live stock to our shows. We are proud to have some returning and new faces this year!
