Fish Fry Near Me 2024 | Delicious Meals to Fill the Indianapolis Lenten Season

First, it was the King Cakes and paczkis of Fat Tuesday, and now you’re probably wondering, “Where can I find a fish fry near me?”

Every year, local Catholic churches put together about six weeks of fish fry nights and we’re not complaining. A good old-fashioned fish fry is super popular among those who observe Lent, but they’re not the only ones showing up! Each of the Fish Fry locations below is open to the public.

Jumping from fish fry to fish fry for the next few weeks is a great way to get to know new people and new areas of Indianapolis. Plus, that beer batter goodness is just so great! Next, you’ll be looking for the best egg hunts.

Lenten fish fries are a great way to enjoy a meal with your family and others in the Indy area while observing religious practices regarding food consumption during the Lenten season.  Many churches use the proceeds from their fish frys to support local charities or their own ministries. Find a fish fry in Indianapolis near you!

Our family enjoys the community found at a fish fry, the wonderful food, and keeping that fish smell out of our home kitchen! Are we missing a fish fry? Please email with the information.

Fish fries are a popular tradition in many Christian and Catholic churches during the observance of Lent. Lent is a period of fasting, repentance, and spiritual reflection that begins on Ash Wednesday and ends on Easter Sunday. During this time, many religious people abstain from eating meat on Fridays as a form of sacrifice and penance. Fish, however, is not considered meat in the Catholic tradition, and therefore is a popular food choice during Lenten Fridays.
