WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Established in 1949, the Purdue Ag Alumni Association Fish Fry has been going for 70+ years strong.
The Ag Alumni Association started in the 1920s, however, beginning as an alumni reunion and awards program in its early days at the Armory on campus. The event has now become the associations, and possibly the university’s largest alumni gathering, and fundraiser at Purdue, even having to relocate twice to to accommodate those who wanted to attend. The fish fry is now held at the Indiana State Fairgrounds in Indianapolis.
