A Note about COVID-19

We are currently planning to hold Fable Fest 2020 as usual this year. However, we will adjust plans as necessary based on City recommendations if the COVID-19 virus is still presenting a health risk to our community as the time of the festival nears.


To our sponsors:  If we are unable to hold the festival because of COVID19, you’ll have the choice of the following:

  • We’ll give you a refund on your 2020 sponsorship (except for sponsors of the reading programs which will go on as planned)
  • Or you can choose to apply your sponsorship to Fable Fest 2021
  • Or you can donate the money to the Foundation to be put to good use supporting the Library’s many programs

In the meantime, if you commit to a sponsorship we will begin promoting your business immediately!

Bohemian BBQ is doing BBQ in their own distinct Bohemian style, infusing an artistic take on tried and true BBQ traditions. Not that you won't find all your favorites here: they've got all those classic meats, cooked low and slow to bring out that smoky aroma and taste. From their signature Bohemian BBQ sundae featuring a base of baked beans layered with pork, brisket, twice baked potato salad and sausage to their Boho frito: their take on a frito pie loaded with beef, pulled pork and shredded cheese, there's a whole lot of heft on this full bodied menu.

Evil Weiner

Lick Ice Cream

Hot dogs with NO Rules. We take the classic American hot dog and create new and exciting ways to present it to you. With no rules (hey, we're evil for crying out loud). If it sounds good and breaks some rules, it's on the menu! Evil Wiener uses only the best ingredients, and prepares all of its own toppings, brisket, smoked pulled pork, Carne guisada, and our special seasoning, Evil Dust. Come see us at Fable Fest!

Lick Ice Cream

These artisanal ice creams contain no artificial flavors or high fructose corn syrup. The owners at Lick pride themselves on being able to trace every ingredient back to its original source, right down to the cows. The ice creams, made with 100% milk cream, come in a variety of meticulously crafted flavors. Move over vanilla and chocolate. Here, you’ll find choices like roasted beets blended with fresh mint and dark chocolate seasoned with olive oil and sea salt. Drooling yet?
