Balearic Day – 01 March

Balearic Day Fiesta.

On March 1 each year, there is a public holiday ‘Balearic Islands’ Day which commemorates the granting of autonomous government status to the Balearic Islands (Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera) in 1983.

Balearic Day 01 March Celebrations take place across the four islands but, as the largest of the Balearic Islands, Balearic Day in Mallorca and particularly in Palma hosts the majority of the events and attracts very large crowds.

Balearic Day Palma 01 MarchThe biggest event takes place along Palma’s imposing city wall at Es Baluard which plays host to a Medieval artisan market selling a wide array of food and products made on the islands as well as demonstrations of traditional arts and crafts.

Saunter along the stalls which are laid out in front historic Balearic government buildings, Consolat de Mar, (open to the public on this one day of the year), the Medieval mercantile exchange at Sa Llotja, and all the to the Parc de Mar beneath Palma’s majestic Cathedral, La Seu.

Celebrating Balearic day in Mallorca

Flags are flying, jugglers are hard at work and stallholders are dressed in Medieval costumes. To the sound of folk music you may see a dancing giant or traditional Mallorcan demons with fireworks.

Balearic Day Giants - Mallorca Parc de sa Feixina plays host to a food market offering tantalising regional food delights from all areas of Spain. Savour a selection of tapas for a few euros or, if you are looking for something more substantial, the huge BBQs serve various cuts of meat, grilled to perfection. Delicious!
