National Basque Festival

July 1, 2023

Celebrate the Old Country at the National Basque Festival in downtown Elko โ€” the HQ of Nevadaโ€™s Basque culture. Visiting a traditional Basque boardinghouse, then diving into a family-style, garlic-loaded revolving door of hearty entrees and sides is considered a Nevada rite of passage.

Other events include age-old challenges like wood chopping and other Basque rural sports, dancing alongside Nevada Basques to live, traditional music, and hearing stories and traditions alive in Basque restaurants across Nevada first hand, all from the mouths of multi-generation Nevada Basque communities.
