CLEVELAND –  Lent has officially begun, which means it’s Fish Fry season.

Many Christian churches abstain from eating meat on Fridays during Lent, which is why some people think of this time of year as the “fish fry season.”

Lent began Wednesday, March 6 with Ash Wednesday and lasts until Thursday, April 18.

Churches, organizations and restaurants host Lenten seafood lunches and dinners for the community to enjoy. Here’s an alphabetical list of fish fry locations across northeast Ohio.

All events in the list below are held on Fridays unless otherwise stated.

If you have a Fish Fry you’d like to have us list, please send the name of the church, the address, the times of the dinner and a link to your website/information to tips@fox8.com.
