Live the best parties and festivals of Mallorca 2015
Don’t miss any of the essential summer events in Mallorca during your stay at our 4 star hotel in Palma
In Mallorca, like in the rest of Spain, many localities choose the summer months for celebrating their festivals. They all have in common a comprehensive schedule packed with activities for children and adults to enjoy summer to the fullest.
Today we are going to recommend some of the most popular summer festivals in Mallorca, so that you can experience summertime just as a local would:
Felanitx festival - Sant Agustí
Located in the southwest of the island, the town celebrates its festivities between July 18 and August 29. The big day of the programme is August 28, Saint Augustine’s Day, when the streets of Felanitx fill with music and celebration, catching the attention of the rest of the island.
Very close to our hotel, in Es Molinar, you will have the chance to enjoy a majestic correfoc organized by the colla de dimonis Kinfumfá Palma to celebrate its 5th anniversary. It will be on July 31 at 11pm. It’s the perfect chance to enjoy a traditional night of fire, light and batucada.
Pollenca festival - Moors and Christians battle
On August 2, the town of Pollenca dresses up to celebrate the festival of its patron saint, the Mother of God of the Angels, while also commemorating the victory of its people over the pirate attack of 1550. The recreation of the battle between Moors and Christians takes place from 7pm.
Binissalem festival - Es Vermar
In mid-September (dates to be determined), Binissalem celebrates the end of the grape harvest with a feast known as Es Vermar. The most popular celebration of this holiday is the grape battle, in which all participants throw wine and ripe grapes to each other.
Festivities of the Mother of God of Health, patron saint of Palma
With the end of the summer come the celebrations of the patron saint of Palma, and with them many fun activities for everyone. From September 8 you’ll find giants, children's workshops and lots of music in this festivity held a few minutes walking distance from our boutique hotel in Palma.
