2024 Local Fish Frys in Frederick Md During This Season of Lent

Local fish frys in Frederick County are organized by churches and community organizations, taking place on Fridays which are traditionally a day of abstinence for Catholics during Lent.

Whether you celebrate Lent (the season of penance and prayer before Easter) or not, tis the season for Fish Frys!

Clearly, attending a local fish fry can be a fun and delicious way to support your community and enjoy some good food!

So, to find a fish fry near you, scroll down for my list.

Fish Frys in Frederick Md During Lent

First, there’s a great article in the Frederick News Post, titled, “You Don’t Have to Be Catholic To Enjoy Lenten Fish Frys”.

In the article, the author reviews a fish fry that she really enjoyed!

This year, Lent 2024 begins on Ash Wednesday, February 14, 2024 and will end on Thursday, March 28, 2024.

I’ve put together a list of local churches, as well as restaurants, who offer fish fry dinners on Fridays during the Lenten season.

Needless to say, you don’t have to be a member of a church to attend one of these Fish Fry’s, and you don’t have to be a Christian either.

In my alphabetical list (first churches, then restaurants), I’ve included the name, address, phone number, & website link for each fish fry location.

Be sure to call each location before driving to your fish fry of choice so that you can confirm that they are still offering a fish fry for that evening.

For instance, some churches don’t offer fish fry dinners EVERY Friday during Lent.
