World's Biggest Fish Fry

Paris, Tennessee, World's Biggest Fish Fry


The World’s Biggest Fish Fry revolves around fried catfish dinners (12,000 pounds to be exact), parades, dancing, rodeo nights, carnival rides, fishing, and more. If you didn’t grow up around the delicacy of catfish, a platter served in the “Fish Tent” might seem overwhelming. The generous portions include farm-raised catfish fried to perfection, hushpuppies, coleslaw, beans, French fries piled high, and a cold drink to wash it all down.
The week-long festival features concerts, a carnival, a grand parade, rodeos, and catfish races, yes, you read that correctly!
