Buffalo, Wyoming, USA. The organization of the event hwas based on the members and directors of the Big Horn Basque Club of Buffalo and of the whole of the local Basque community, which has also added the invaluable support of the City of Buffalo and of many neighbors and locals of non Basque origin, thanks to whose joint effort it has been possible to design and prepare this extensive program.

This is the list of activities planned for this July 20-23:
