15th annual

benefiting

Cahaba River Society

SUNDAY, SEP 29, 2024 | NOON TO 4:00 P.M. | CAHABA BREWING COMPANY

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!

Fry-Down is a catfish cookoff and festival celebrating the Cahaba River

and benefiting Cahaba River Society.

 

Survey 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) and its rich diversity of life.
