The Indy GreekFest is an annual fundraiser to benefit the Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Carmel, Indiana. It is an opportunity for our church community to share our ethnic heritage through food, culture and Orthodox Christian faith. Now in its 45th year, it’s among the oldest cultural and food festivals in Central Indiana.
