Message From Marika

August 24, 2018

Dear GreekFest Friends,

WOW! Has it really been 45 years of GreekFest!?

When our parents and grandparents started the festival in 1974, the intent was to share our Orthodox faith and Hellenic culture with you; our guests, friends, family and community. Hopefully, we have accomplished that goal in the last 45 years and we hope to continue that quest for many years to come.

As in years past, GreekFest 2018 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 Sam Nicholos, the individual booth chairs, our numerous volunteers, all the local sponsors, partners and our entire Parish family for their dedication and support.

We hope you enjoy the food, music, dance and hospitality of our festival.

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for GreekFest 2019 on August 23-25.

Thank you for coming and here’s to 45 more years!

Marika Kalyvas Bagios
GreekFest 2018, 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
