San Inazio Basque Festival 

Friday and Saturday, The Basque Block

One of the mottos of the San Inazio festival, which takes place in Boise's Basque Block every year, is also a guide for enjoying it: Jateko eta edateko jakitea nahikoa da jakitea, a Basque saying that translates to "To know how to eat and to drink is to know enough." There will be plenty of Basque food at the three-day event and a variety of drinks for purchase, as well as free performances by three groups of Basque dancers, live music ensembles and more. The festivities on Saturday, July 28, will also include a 7 p.m. mass, followed by a street dance. If you'd like to participate—and get an authentic taste of Basque culture—be sure to bring both your hollow leg and your dancing shoes.

5 p.m.-midnight Friday; 10 a.m.-1 a.m. Saturday; 6-11 p.m. Sunday, FREE. The Basque Block, Grove Street between Capitol Boulevard and Sixth Street, Boise, 208-342-9983,
