The onset of spring and summer means the arrival of Basque festival season in communities across the United States.

From Rhode Island to California, Basques will showcase their unique culture and their pride in being both Basque and American. The festivals are also an opportunity for non-Basques to enjoy colorful dances and great food and mingle with people who have managed to maintain traditions that date back centuries to the villages and cities of the Basque Country in France and Spain.

Others, such as the mountainside picnic sponsored by California Basques in Ventura County, are small affairs. But each one is guaranteed to feature a fun time for all who attend.
