This 100% Basque sporting and cultural event takes place every year in August, for a week. This year it will be the 39th edition!
Throughout the week, there will be traditional ball games (pelotta, pelone gum pleone, jokogarbi) which take place by a different team every evening. An occasion for the local seniors to compete with the pelotaris invited from France and Canada and for the young generation to show off their know-how.
