50th Annual International Houby Fest 2018
The 50th annual International Houby Fest sponsored by the City of Berwyn and Town of Cicero will take place from Thurs, Oct 4 through Sun, Oct 7 Celebrating 50 Years of Houby. This year's theme will be Honoring Our Military: Duty * Honor * Country.
Beginning in 1968, the Houby Festival has celebrated the Czech and Slovak heritage and annual harvest with the symbolic “Houby,” the Czech/Slovak word for mushroom. Our time honored event draws over 15,000 enthusiastic spectators along our main street and remains as one of Berwyn & Cicero’s most popular events. In a wonderful display of cultural unity, the festival is now celebrated by different ethnicities and backgrounds from the surrounding community.
