Fiesta and Public Holidays

Below are listed the local events, fiestas and public holidays that we are aware of. Most fiestas will normally take place on the same dates each year, however, the programme of events is often not finalised until a few days beforehand:

January 1 New Years Day - Public Holiday
  5 The arrival of the Three Kings and worship of the baby Jesus.
  6 Feast of The Epiphany - Public Holiday
  16 - 17 Fiesta of Sant Antoni Abat the patron saint of animals. The event begins with the lighting of small bonfires, which the local residents sit around and sing traditional songs and roast "botifarrons", which are locally made blood sausages. The following day there is a colourful parade, culminating in the blessing of the animals.
February 1 Sant Ignasi d'Antioquia: A religious commemoration of the ending of a plague that ravaged the town in 1820.
March 1 Balearics Day - Public Holiday
Lent   The Carnival Fiestas begin on the Thursday before Lent (Dijous Llarder), and continue until Ash Wednesday (Dimecres de Cendra) with street parades and fancy-dress parties all over the island.
Easter   The festivities of Easter usually begin on Holy Thursday with a parade to the sound of drums and horns through the streets. On Good Friday a parade takes place through the streets and the body of Christ is carried inside a tomb at the Church of Sant Joan Bautista. On Easter Sunday morning people meet at the Plaza de Sant Joan and witness the drama of Christ's death followed by the joy of his resurrection.
