My husband and I went to Greece last year and absolutely loved the food! When we found out that Indianapolis hosts a Greek Festival every year, we were pretty stoked to try it out.
In addition to the great food, you can also tour the church, attending cooking demos, listen to live music and shop in the market place. If you have kids, there are bounce houses and lots of other family entertainment.
Last year, I got the sampler platter which included tyropita, spanakopita, vegetarian dolmathes, Greek meatballs, hummus, red pepper hummus, tzatziki, feta, olives, and pita bread – all for $15. For dessert, I had LOUKOUMADES , which are deep fried dough that’s been dipped in honey and cinnamon. Those were TO DIE FOR.
You can view the whole menu here.
The Greek Festival also has a nice free shuttle bus service to and from the church if you don’t want to pay $5 to park at the church itself. This year you park at the Lids Corporate Office at 10555 Lids Way in Zionsville.
Indianapolis Greek Festival starts this Friday, Aug. 24 and runs through Sunday, Aug. 26. It takes place at Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, 3500 W. 106th St. in Carmel.
