It’s that time again! Come join us for Houby Days, the Czech Village Association’s annual spring festival, which celebrates the history and culture of Czech Village in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Houby (pronounced HOE-bee) is Czech for mushrooms.
The event kicks off on Friday evening, May 17, with vendors, carnival and live music by the Czech Plus Band and headliner, Bob Dorr and the Blue Band.
Saturday and Sunday morning will begin with an egg and houby breakfast at Smugglers Wharf. Throughout the day, enjoy Czech music, song and traditional folk dance as you wind your way through the Village shops and vendors. The carnival and Saturday’s car show will be sure to appeal to all ages. Brass Transit Authority headlines the Kosek Bandstand on Saturday evening.
Sunday is Kids Day featuring children’s games, cabbage roll races, the Hawkeye Pedal Pull, puppet theater and children’s costume parade.
