Costa Mesa Fish Fry History

We are known as the “Fish Fry Club,” a title we have earned with over 71 years of frying fish. The Fish Fry is presented to help raise money for local schools, clubs, and other organizations in the community. Each year we provide our annual Fish Fry in Costa Mesa and successfully draw a nice crowd, many returning families who have been a part of this great tradition since the beginning. Families from all over the country have visited our event and many come back just to attend!

In the spring of 1946, when considering what to do for a fundraiser, Bob Skiles suggested a fish fry and carnival. The money was to be used to build a baseball field in what is now Lions Park. The Fish Fry was held on Newport Avenue at the corner of 18th Street. A stove and refrigerator were offered as prizes.

Dinners were served on regular dishes that were scraped and washed clean in the American Legion Hall kitchen.
