The club organizes a dinner-gathering every month in one of the three Basque restaurants of Gardnerville. A newsletter for members is issued also. In January-February the club organizes a gathering for members and a dinner, serving tripes and chicken. The second weekend of August is the Club's Annual Picnic, held every other year together with NABO Euskal Kantari Eguna (Basque Singer's Day) at the CVIC-hall of Minden. September is time for a worker's picnic. In early December the club joins a 'Parade of Lights'. A few weeks before that, in November, after the meeting to elect president and directors of the club, there is a dinner and dance party at one of the Gardnerville Basque restaurants. The Annual Mus Tournament by Mendiko Euskaldun Kluba is one of the biggest and most well known in the nation. A few years ago the club sponsored the publication of the book 'From the Basque Country to the Sheep Camps of the Carson Valley', about the history of local Basque emigrants compiled by the members of the club.
