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.
