Basques living in and around Ventura County. Current membership exceeds
90 families. Annual events include two barbecues and a mus tournament.
One barbecue is held in the
Spring with a second following in the Fall. The Spring gathering
features a Basque mass; a barbecue lunch with chicken, lamb, tri-tip,
beans, salad, bread and cheese; Basque folk song and dance follow the
lunch. Basque music for dancing is also provided for dancing. The Fall
BBQ is free to paid members and features paella, tri-tip and salad.

barbecue. Therefore, please be sure to bring your own. Both barbecues
