This year marks the Fourth annual Day of the Basque Diaspora!
What is Diaspora Day? It is an annual event in which we celebrate the Basques and Basque culture outside the Basque Country. There are so many Basques around the world, we want to celebrate their accomplishments and continued efforts to perpetuate Basque culture for further generations! Why September 8? Well, glad you asked. September 8, 1522 was when Juan Sebastian Elcano finished Ferdinand Magellan’s circumnavigation of the globe. Quite fitting since we are celebrating other Basques that have made their way to various locations around the world, established a family and community, and continue to share Basque culture!
