From the organizers:
Each year the Cahaba River Society hosts a catfish cook-off and festival that’s not only good for the planet, but also the palate! This event has become another staple in Birmingham’s dynamic food scene as culinary masters, old and new, battle it out for the top catfish cooking prizes.
The Fry-Down is the Cahaba River Society’s largest fundraiser, allowing Cahaba River Society to continue its work to restore and protect the Cahaba (Alabama’s longest remaining free flowing river), the river’s watershed and its rich diversity of life.
This event features fun for all ages with a carnival-like atmosphere, live music, amazing food, a climbing wall, hula-hoopers, face-painters, educational games, wildlife demonstrations, a beer garden and more! Come bring your family, bring your friends, and celebrate with us as we raise awareness on the importance of the Cahaba River, as well as party in celebration of all that river provides for this community, state & country!
Tickets are $20* and include catfish and sides from our Fry Teams.
Kids 12 and under–FREE!
*The amount of your ticket cost that is in excess of the value of the activities is a charitable contribution.
This event is not hosted by ASAN. As one of ASAN’s roles is to share information and resources across our network so as to maximize all of our impact, we routinely post events that we ourselves are not hosting. If you have questions regarding this event, please contact event organizers rather than ASAN.
