Message From Marika

August 26th, 2015

Dear GreekFest Friends,

Greeks embrace a long-standing tradition of family, friends and community celebrations. As one of our 15,000+ guests, we welcome your family to ours in this 43rd year of sharing our Orthodox faith and Hellenic culture.

As family, we ask you to enjoy the food, music, dance and hospitality of our festival by strolling through the Food Court and Bakery, treating yourself to authentic Greek food and pastries, shopping the Grecian Grocery and Marketplace for those one-of-a-kind treasures, or swinging by the Beer and Wine tent to sip the varieties of Grecian Wines and local craft beers. Should you relish what you sample, catch a cooking demonstration to learn how to make exquisite Greek delicacies at home.

After your culinary journey, take a tour of our beautiful Church with her hand painted iconography and newly installed tile floors.

For the younger family members, we have added “Bounce House City” to the puppet show and various children’s activities available in the Children’s Tent.

GreekFest 2016 is hosted by the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church parishioners who dedicate their time and talents throughout the year to present what has become one of Central Indiana’s favorite food and cultural events. Without these hard working volunteers, there is no GreekFest.

A special thanks to the festival co-chairs, Mike Hendricks, Anthony Filis and Steve Young, the individual booth chairs, our numerous volunteers, all the local sponsors and partners and our entire Parish family for their dedication and support.

Eat, Drink, Dance, Enjoy being Greek for a day and mark your calendars for GreekFest 2017 on August 25-27.

Thank you for coming and welcome to our home!

Marika Kalyvas Bagios
GreekFest 2016, President

Watching so many family members working, supporting, and enjoying themselves while benefiting our entire Holy Trinity parish always energizes me at GreekFest. Lawrence Eleftheri , Festival President
