This weekend the festival of San Inazio comes to the popular Basque Block of downtown Boise. With a mix of eclectic and vibrant foods, cultural dance, and a party type hyped up vibe this is one of those festivals that happen in our community that is worth making the trip into town for. It's been thrown around that Boise has the largest population of Basque people out side of Spain in the world, which it's not, but it does have the largest concentration of people of Basque descent in the world.

The festival kicks off at 5 p.m. this Friday, July 28th and will continue until midnight.  The event will also take place from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 29th and 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. on Sunday, July 30th.

Some events you can plan on seeing are a variety of bands and music from Txantxangorriak and Amuma Says No.  (Complete List Of Events During Festival) No doubt about it, jumping on down to the Basque Block is an idea that will enrich your understanding of these great people of the Treasure Valley, but let's be real the foods, the smells and sounds of our great city will come alive. And you for sure want to be a part of that.
