Our federation of Basque organizations is built upon the contributions of our members, that aim to assist each other in the pursuit of the same objective: the perpetuation of "Basqueness" (Basque culture and identity).

The Ventura County Basque Club was formed in 1994 in order to bring together the 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.

We would like to remind everyone that beverages are not provided at either barbecue.  Therefore, please be sure to bring your own.  Both barbecues are held in Oak Grove Park (see directions below).

Since our inception, the club has had the pleasure of sending two mus teams to the world mus championships.  The annual mus tournament is held in the Spring with the NABO national tournament following in the Summer.
