The mission of the Indianapolis Greek Festival is to share our Orthodox faith and Greek culture with our Central Indiana community.
Welcome GreekFest Friends, Families, and Guests:
It all started nearly 110 years ago when in 1910, Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church filed its charter with the Indiana Secretary of State. Through the years the families of Holy Trinity have seen our share of change. We have grown out of and into new locations, settling into our home at 3500 West 106th Street in Carmel in 2008. In 2018, His Eminence Metropolitan Nicholas, blessed Holy Trinity with the elevated distinction of Cathedral.
Through the years and through the change, our dedication to the Orthodox Faith and our Greek Culture has remained. In 1973, with this focus in mind, Father Andrew Georgaroudakis initiated what would become the Indianapolis GreekFest that we know and love today. It was a humble and rainy beginning, but the families of Holy Trinity were determined to share the Orthodox Faith and Greek Culture with their friends, neighbors and the Central Indiana Community.
This is the 46th year of the festival, and a lot has changed since 1973. Still, after all these years, our devotion and commitment remain. The families and clergy of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral continue to share their time and talents to make the GreekFest one of Central Indiana’s favorite annual events. As you walk the festival grounds this year, please enjoy the sights, sounds, and aromas that are part of our Greek Culture. As you tour the Cathedral and visit the bookstore, please take a moment to learn about the Orthodox Faith that is so much a part of who we are.
Thank you, Father Bill and Father Lucas, for your guidance; the Parish Council for your support; this year’s Festival Steering Committee: Stephanie Anderson, Renee Brochhagen, Gary Martine, Ernie Mudis, and Nick Sofianopoulos; individual booth chairs; our GreekFest volunteers; sponsor and partners; and all of the friends and families of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Cathedral, who do so much to make this event a success year after year.
