A guide to the best autumn festivities in Majorca

30.09.2016

When autumn approaches the Mediterranean, the island of Majorca flourishes with its most authentic and traditional atmosphere. It is a time for fairs, traditional markets, wine and olive harvest and the delicious “vermar” noodles. It is the season for mushroom picking, pumpkin and artichokes. The fields on the island feel like spring, bursting with fruits and vegetables that are the perfect excuse to celebrate a festivity in the village squares.

To visit Majorca in autumn is to discover a quieter and traditional side to the island. Life seems to evolve from the beaches to inland villages, where the squares, streets and terraces are full of people enjoying the sun and shade. It is the time to enjoy the produce from the island’s fields and the possibility of enjoying a truly exciting cultural and gastronomic holiday.

The first major event is the harvest festival in Binissalem. Known as “Ses festes des Vermar” they are the perfect opportunity to discover in depth the long history of the town and its vineyards, producing one of the best wines of the Mediterranean. Visiting its most famous wineries, enjoy a tapas tour and wine tasting can be the ideal plan if you are travelling with your partner or groups of friends in the autumn.

Later on you will have the possibility to visit the town of Caimari and its popular olive fair, one of the star products on the tables on Majorca. There is no house, bar or terrace on the island where a dish is served without including some olives. It generally takes place during the first week of November. The fair lasts for a couple of days, with live music performances, traditional market and popular meals. Pure authenticity.

Inca’s Dijous Bo is the fair of all fairs on the island. It is marked on everyone’s calendar. The large market organised around the Dijous Bo is one of the, if not the most, famous on Majorca. It is a tradition for the vast majority of Majorcans to enjoy it every year.

Mushrooms sprout especially in the Serra de Tramuntana and especially in the beautiful village of Mancor de la Vall, in the north west of Majorca. During the month of November the town organizes one of the most interesting fairs if you are a mushroom enthusiast, the fira del esclatasang (Bloody Milk Cap mushroom fair).

There are many more traditional fairs, although we have only listed a few. The best is to come to the island and check the calendar. We are sure that there will be something special taking place for you to discover and enjoy.

Come and enjoy the best of Majorca with Prinsotel.
