A Basque in Boise

2013 Basque festival season has officially started

Basque-American flag pinAre you feeling homesick? Looking for summer fun? Lucky for you, Basque festival season has officially started in the USA.

Fresno’s is the first of many Basque Festivals which will take place across the States from May until the middle of September. Once again, there will be plenty of opportunities for everyone to enjoy great food, dancing, and probably some kalimotxo as well. If you are not familiar with the Basques, these events are the perfect setting to get a taste of our culture, our language, and our way of being in general. And if you happen to be an immigrant like me, Basque Festivals come pretty darn close to feeling at home.

I’m not sure which ones I’ll hit this summer, but I’ll be in Boise for sure during San Inazio in July. If you can make it too, I’d love to see you!
