Abstract
Ethnic festivals are dynamic socio-spatial phenomena in

American society in which rationalized spaces are

transformed into "festival space" and the cultural landscapes

within the boundaries of the festivals are transfigured into

festival landscapes. The landscapes of ethnic festivals

generate, via a colorful assortment of cultural performances

and symbols, metaphors of ethnicity and spatial expressions

of social processes which influence ethnic groups. As a

metaphor of ethnicity, festival landscapes have become both

a tool for the ethnic boundary maintenance of ethnic groups

and a form of symbolic ethnicity for many assimilated

individuals. This thesis analyzes the landscape of the Basque

festival, Jaialdi '95, as a tool for the ethnic boundary

maintenance for the American Basque community and the

Basque colony in Boise, Idaho, and as a form of symbolic

ethnicity for assimilated American Basques.
