Fish Fry

Fish Fries in the Pittsburgh Region

| Tuesday, Feb. 9, 2016, 10:42 p.m.

Friday fish fry events during Lent are expected to draw thousands of hungry customers from across Western Pennsylvania starting this week.

Lent begins on Ash Wednesday and ends March 24.

During the six weeks leading up to Easter Sunday on March 27, many Christians abstain from eating most forms of meat on Fridays, giving rise to the tradition of Friday fish fries in church basements, social clubs and fire halls that often double as charity fundraisers.

The Trib has compiled an online map of fish fry events in the region. It will be updated throughout the Lenten season.

If you don't see your fish fry and would like us to list it, organizations should send the following information to announcements@tribweb.com: name of the organization, address of the event, takeout phone number, website, times and dates, menu and pricing.
