Message From Marika

August 25, 2017

Dear GreekFest Friends,

This is our 44th year of sharing our Orthodox faith and Hellenic culture with you; our guests, friends, family, and community.

Enjoy the food, music, dance and hospitality of our festival. Stroll through the Food Court and Bakery. Shop the Grecian Grocery and Marketplace. Sip the 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, newly installed tile floors, and pews.

For the younger family members, enjoy “Bounce House City”, our puppet show featuring Rumpelstiltskin and various children’s activities available in the Children’s Tent.

GreekFest 2017 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.

Now go “get your Greek on” and mark your calendars for GreekFest 2018 on August 24-26.

Thank you for coming and welcome to our home!

Marika Kalyvas Bagios
GreekFest 2017, 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
