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 are spread over 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 magnificent 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, past the impressive Balearic government buildings , Consolat de Mar, (open to the public on this one day of the year), take in the Medieval mercantile exchange at Sa Llotja, all the way 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 most of the stallholders are dressed in Medieval costumes. You may even see a dancing giant or traditional Mallorcan demons with fireworks and, of course, you will enjoy local folk music.

Balearic Day Giants - Mallorca The food market in Parc de sa Feixina is particularly tantalising with regional food delights from all areas of Spain.

You could pick up tapas for a few euros or ,if you are looking for something more substantial, there are huge BBQs serving various cuts of meat, grilled to perfection. Delicious!
