JAIALDI 2015 - July 28th - August 2nd 2015

Jaialdi is coming! The largest Basque Cultural festival in the United States (and arguably the world) starts July 28th. If you're Basque, it's a great opportunity to get in touch with your heritage, but even if you're not Basque you'll have an amazing time with amazing people.

Go to for details and to purchase tickets.

If you've never been to Jaialdi, here are a bunch of photos of the event to give you a feel for what's in store: Jaialdi 2010 Photos

Olé Magazine

My photo was used on the cover of the November 2010 issue of Olé Magazine in Finland. How Cool!
