June 10. On its Intelligent Travel blog, prestigious magazine National Geographic has just included the 2015 Jaialdi Basque festival as one of five recommended open-air events to attend this summer in America.  In the “Beyond the Guidebook: Where the Locals Go” section, as part of Maryellen Kennedy Duckett’s recommendations to “Get Outside in the U.S.A,” Jaialdi is described as “a multisensory bash celebrating all things Basque.” To see the original post click here.

We’re sure here at the Center that if you’re reading this blog, you probably won’t need any extra encouragement to get out and about, July 28-August 2, at Jaialdi this summer. Just in case, though, bear in mind that even Old World Basques will be heading to Boise to attend the event, as noted in this article by Euskalkultura here, and they want to meet you!
