Because just as Durango opens its doors to them, we want to live with respect and responsibility in Durango “, they have pointed out.

In the words of those responsible for the fair, “in recent days we have seen that we know how to act responsibly. We have had, among others, mass concerts or events of different political parties, both in the street and in the interior. We want to invite the Basques to enjoy this showcase of Basque culture, but always acting responsibly, both inside and outside Landako Gunea. As we have said time and again: with responsibility within, and with responsibility without. “
