CAHABA RIVER FRY-DOWN 2017
SAVE THE DATE: SUNDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2017 | 12-4PM | RAILROAD PARK
The Cahaba River Fry-Down Features an Explosion of Alabama Flavor!
For the last seven years the Cahaba River Society (CRS) has been hosting an event that not only helps the planet, but also the palate. The 8th Annual Cahaba River Fry-Down will take place this year on Sunday, October 1, 2017, 12pm-4pm at Railroad Park. The event has become another staple in the Birmingham metro foodie movement, as culinary masters, old and new, battle it out for the top catfish cooking prizes.
Guests will also enjoy live music, lots of fun activities for children of all ages, and the Fry-Down Beer Garden, presented by the Cahaba River Society Tributary Board and features local craft breweries.
The Fry-Down, sponsored generously by Amerex, allows CRS to continue its work in preserving Alabama’s longest remaining free flowing river. The Society is able to achieve this mission with projects that focus on minimizing the negative impact on the river and educating as many people as possible on how to do just that. The CRS’ Shane Hulsey CLEAN Environmental Education Program uses a hands on approach by taking students, teachers, and volunteers to the river for learning programs, river clean ups, and privet pulling. To date, CLEAN has served more than 30,000 youth and teachers.
As well as thanking AMEREX for their generosity, we would like to extend a HUGE thank you to the following sponsors for dedication and contribution to our cause and our event:
