We are a group of 25 Basque dancers from the Kern County Basque Club of California, ranging from 11 to 20 years of age. Our youth/adult members have been awarded the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to perform at the Smithsonian Folklife Festival in Washington DC this summer (July 7 - 10, 2016); preserving and promoting our Basque heritage. It is an exciting experience for us to share our culture with the global community and that is why we ask for your support in raising funds. Every little bit will help with our travel expenses for the event.

Thank you for your time & support in sharing our love of our culture -- Aupa Dantzari Gazteak!

Only two weeks away from our annual Kern County Basque Club festival this Memorial Day weekend. We don't practice until we get it right...we practice until we can't get it wrong. We continue our efforts in dancing to DC this summer for the Smithsonian Folklife festival. Thank you all for your generous support. Every little bit helps!

Here is an update on another fundraising event...

Don't forget...please help us get to Washington DC this summer! $75 for a yummy delicious lamb and paella dinner on Saturday, June 11, 2016 and that will get you in the drawing for a chance to win $5000 plus many additional prizes. Contact/direct message me if interested in buying a ticket or making a donation (gift cards or gift certificates donations welcomed too).

If you are unable to attend the delicious dinner, you can also make a donation to our GoFundMe account.
Enjoy our Basque heritage with dinner, drinks, friends, fun and a big pay out!
