On June 16th to 18th, 2017, enjoy a full weekend dedicated to the Basque lively culture and tasty gastronomy in West Paris, by the River Seine. A 11-year-old rendez-vous!

So what to expect when it comes to the Basque culture, the famous South-West region of France?

>Basque pelota ball: The traditional most popular game in this region: basically, it’s a two on two game where opponents throw a ball against a wall or above a net using a bat. Very intense game, close to squash. You can register if you want in!

>Xoka-Tira: It is a basque popular game, where two teams face forces pulling a rope! You can register on the website if you want in!

>Basque street food: Basque cooked meat, tapas, poultries, smoked Bayonne ham, peppers, fish, ewe cheese and more brought to you by the best local chefs from the Basque region.
