For many communities across the Greater Indianapolis area, Catholic festivals are some of the biggest highlights of the entire summer. Carmel is no different. One of its local Catholic churches, St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church, is onec again holding its annual summer festival at the end of July. This family-friendly, three-day event is a great place for Northside residents to relax and enjoy live music and food.


On July 28th, 29th and 30th, Saint Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church will host its annual summer festival, which is one of the largest community gatherings in Hamilton County. The church, which is located on Haverstick Road in Carmel, has a variety of activities between 6:00pm and 11:00pm each day. The festival will have a beer tent, raffle tickets and grilled food such as bratwurst and hamburgers. In addition to food, there will be rides, Bingo, live music and many other fun activities.

Thursday Events

On Thursday, July 28th, kids can get an unlimited riding pass for just $20.00. This pass must be purchased before 9:00pm, however. Additionally, there will be a “Closest-to-the Pin” contest, a nickel pitch and games designed for the kids. Later, Hippy Dreaming with Joey Garcia will perform in the Entertainment Tent at 7:30pm.

Friday and Saturday Events

On Friday, Coyote Highway will perform at 7:30pm in the Entertainment Tent. On Saturday, She’s With Me will perform at the same time and place. There are no unlimited riding passes available for Friday or Saturday. Visitors must pay for each individual ride. On Saturday, there will be a corn hole tournament at 2:00pm. Participants must sign up for this tournament by July 27th. Signup information can be provided by emailing Kurt Tobin at To finish off Friday and Saturday evenings, Setonfest will have a fireworks show.


Setonfest’s 5K is perhaps the highlight of the entire weekend. The 5K takes place at 8:00am on Saturday, July 30th. All proceeds from the 5K go to the church’s Haiti Ministry. This will be the ninth year Setonfest has had a 5K. Interested parties can check out for more information about the 5K.


Setonfest relies heavily on volunteers to run smoothly. Volunteers are needed for many different roles at the festival. Luann can be contacted at for more volunteering information. Bartenders are needed for the Beer Tent as well, but they need a special volunteer bartending permit. Volunteers interested in bartending must attend a training class. It is held on Sunday, July 17th, between 1:30pm and 3:00pm at the church. Anyone interested in bartending can contact Bob Land at 317-294-7784. Additionally, he can be reached via email at
