In 1929, John Archabal started the Sheepherders Ball, an annual event that went on to become an established tradition among Basque Americans in Idaho

After being ‘virtual’ for the last two years, the 2022 Sheepherders Ball returns to an ‘in person celebration’.

The 2022 Sheepherders Ball celebration and fundraiser for the charities account of the Basque Foundation, Inc., will take place on​ ​Saturday, December 17. ​We will have our December Holiday Dinner prior to the dance, and your admission to the dinner will allow you to stay for the dance.

We hope everyone stays to enjoy the music, do a little dancing, and watch the Oinkari Basque Dancers, as this is the debut for their new dancers. The Oinkari Dancers will perform at 8:00 PM, followed by the lamb auction which raises funds for the Basque Charities account.

The dance, featuring “Amuma Says No”, will begin after the lamb auction. The cost of admission to the dance is $5 for adults and children under 12 are admitted for free.

Chorizos and pop will be sold if you are still hungry after dinner.
