Loukoumades, cocos, kourambiedes, koulouria, souvlaki, dolmathes, saganaki, spanakopita, baklava — what more of an incentive do you need to put the Indy Greek Festival on his or her schedule. (Yes, there’s Greek wine, too.)
The fest is August 22 through 24, 2014. Hours are 4 to 10 p.m. Friday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday.
An Indianapolis institution for four decades, the fest moved north with its sponsor, Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, now found at 3500 West 106th Street, Carmel, Indiana (that’s a northside Indy suburb).
In addition to the fabulous traditional Greek food (which your Road Trips Foodie has indeed sampled over the years), there’s Greek dancing, Greek music, church tours and a marketplace.
