2012 Dayton Fish Fry Season is Here!

Click Here for the 2013 Fish Fry Schedule

A common complaint I hear from people is that there is nothing to do in Dayton during the winter months…to which I reply, “Apparently you’ve never heard of Dayton Fish Fry Season.”  In case you didn’t know, Dayton fish fries are THE place to be.  Traditionally, many of the Catholic churches held fish fries during Fridays in Lent, as Catholics don’t eat meat on those days.  Over the past several years, the popularity of fish fries has grown tremendously.  At a typical Catholic fish fry, you’ll be able to eat fish and chips, enjoy a few beers, bid on some amazing silent auction items, and play some black jack.  The cost is around $15 per fish fry, which is much cheaper than a night out on the town…plus you can say you are eating, drinking, shopping, and gambling for the kids!  To get you started, here is a listing of some of the area’s great fish fries.  If you know about others, please feel free to add them in the comments section.  I will do my best to update this list with additional details as they become available!

Two fish were in a tank and the one says to the other, “Do you know how to drive this thing?”
