President's Message

Dear Kith and Kin:

I want to thank the Officers and the Members of the Board of Directors of the Nationalities Council of Indiana, who met with Event Manager Marife Callender, at our new offices in the Interchurch Center of Indianapolis, located at 1100 West 42nd Street, from 2:00 to 6:00 PM on Saturday, March 25, 2017.

Marife Callender is to be commended for the thousands of hours she has spent in outlining the steps that will be necessary in order to guarantee the success of the 41st Annual Indy International Festival, at the Blue Ribbon Pavilion at the Indiana State Fairgrounds, Thursday through Saturday, November 9-11, 2017.

Please note that a number of our Nationalities Groups have not paid their Annual Dues for 2017. As a result, they will not be participating in the 500 Festival Parade. And, needless to say, if their dues remain unpaid, they will not be participating in the 41st Annual Indy International Festival in November.
