San Francisco Basque Cultural Center Jaialdia
This weekend the San Francisco Basque Cultural Centerwill be celebrating its annual Jaialdia August 26-28th. The weekend will include a wide range of activities, along with the NABO Pilota Finals that will be held on Friday and Saturday. The Center is happy to welcome singers and musicians Menditarrak from the Basque Country. This group, comprised of sheepherders and sons of sheepherders, will provide singing entertainment for all to enjoy. After Saturday night’s dinner, Beñat and Jean Louis, also from the Basque Country, will provide music for everyone’s dancing pleasure. For complete information about the weekend, including meal prices, please visit their website.
If you are unable to travel to San Francisco this weekend you’ll have another chance to enjoy Menditarrak on Tuesday, August 30, 2016 at the J.T. Basque Bar & Dining Room in Gardnerville, NV. Dinner is served from 5-9pm and everyone is welcome to enjoy an evening with the group, along with a great Basque meal. For more information please visit them on Facebook.
