It’s a tradition for the Indy Festival of Faiths to kick off with a drumming circle organized by Bongo Boy Music School.
Boy Scouts lead the Procession of Faiths
Another tradition at the Festival is the Procession of Faiths. This year, a new wrinkle was the leadership of Boy Scout Troop 396.
The Procession of Faiths
It was the largest Procession of Faiths ever, with more than 300 people proudly showing off their traditions.
Opening Prayers on the Sacred Arts Stage
The Procession of Faiths ends at the Sacred Arts Stage, where all the groups hear short prayers and blessings from local religious leaders. This year the leaders were joined by young people from their religious traditions.
Performers on the Sacred Arts Stage
A highlight of every Indy Festival of Faiths is the diverse performances from different religious traditions and cultures. 2019’s performances were stellar! Here are a few of them.
