Festival of Faiths

Center for Interfaith Cooperation is a community that pursues peace through interfaith understanding and cooperation.

Since its formation in 2011, CIC has built up a large, robust, and diverse network of trusted relationships with Central Indiana congregations, colleges and universities, and civic and community organizations.

Center for Interfaith Cooperation provides safe environments, resources, and opportunities for service to increase religious literacy, build empathy between faiths, and facilitate interfaith encounters.

Every year CIC organizes Indy Festival of Faiths, Indiana’s largest one-day celebration of our diverse religious landscape. Over the past eight years, the festival has steadily grown in the number of organizations participating, the number of people in attendance, and the diversity of activities offered.


Thank you to all of our sponsors throughout the years!
