Many mainstream Protestant churchs celebrate Lent. Anglicans and Lutherans are pretty universal about it. Methodists often recognize the Lenten season. Presbyterians and other Reformed denominations sometimes too. I think there might be a few Baptist churches that do Lent - but not too many of them in my experience.
Lent is basically the 40 days before Easter and it's a time to repent our sins and reflect on Christ's sacrifice for us. Different churches have different rituals and recommendations of exactly how to do this. But the main purpose is to express sorrow for our sins and to prepare to celebrate Christ's resurrection.
