Town of Cicero & City of Berwyn

The 48th annual International Houby Fest sponsored by the City of Berwyn and Town of Cicero will take place from Thurs, Sept 29 through Sun, Oct 2.

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.
