Basque Bash in Boise

Boise’s thriving Basque culture will be on full display this summer during the annual San Inazio Festival later this month. This summertime bash, held in the middle of downtown, honors St. Ignatius of Loyola, the patron saint of the Basques. It’s also a fun excuse to try out some amazing Basque food and sample the elusive kalimotxo, the unlikely pairing of Coca-Cola with red wine. Really. The festival began more than 25 years ago and now thousands come to the Basque Block at the end of every July to see local musicians and dancers as well as Basque sporting events. The party kicks off on Friday, July 26 and keeps on rolling through the weekend. The San Inazio Festival offers a great opportunity to see what Basque culture is all about, and even start thinking about Jaialdi, the once-every-five-years Basque festival that will be overwhelming Boise with Basque culture and energy in a year’s time. 

Best of the West

This past June, Boise proudly welcomed hundreds of the West’s best youth soccer players and their families to the City of Trees for this year’s edition of the U.S. Youth Soccer Far West Regional Championships. This was the fifth time the tourney visited Boise. The influx of visitors – and the affect they have on Boise’s economy – makes for an exciting time in the Treasure Valley. The event brought an estimated 10,000 people to Boise, with an estimated $10 million worth of economic impact. While the players hope to go on to compete in the U.S. Youth Soccer National Championship in Kansas later this month, Boiseans will start thinking about next year, when the event will return to Idaho’s capital city.
