Basque Club of Utah at Living Traditions Festival
The Basque Club of Utah will participate in the 32nd annual Living Traditions Festival May 19th-21st. This free, three-day cultural festival presents the traditional music, dance, foods, and crafts of the ethnic communities that make Salt Lake City, Utah their home. The Basque club, the only group that has participated in this event every year, will be selling Churros, Chorizos and Croquetas at their booth. Despite the work involved, club members feels it's worth the effort to help educate people on the Basque Country, its food and people. Besides, the booth, the Utah'ko Triskalariak, club dancers will also perform on Sunday at 2pm. For complete information, visit their website.
