The day of the Balearic Islands commemorates the Statute of Autonomy of the Islands

It was signed on March 1, 1983. The festival is celebrated in all the Balearic Islands; Mallorca, Menorca, Ibiza and Formentera.

Most festive events are celebrated in Palma, where all residents take to the streets to enjoy a day full of tradition. The morning begins with a medieval market at Es Baluard, the museum of modern and contemporary art, where you can find everything from typical Mallorcan food, drinks, and artisan products from all over the island . During the day, different workshops and demonstrations are held, as well as small shows by local schools.

The Consolat de la Mar, which is the headquarters of the Government of the Balearic Islands and is not normally open to the public, opens on this special occasion during the weekend offering free guided tours starting at 3 pm.

In the Parc de Sa Feixina, in Santa Catalina, you will find a lot of food stalls cooked to order. Delight yourself with some of the delights of Mallorcan cuisine, listen and dance to the rhythm of Balearic folk music and then have some herbs. You might even see some bigheads or dimonis running around breathing fire.

In the rest of the towns on the island they also celebrate this holiday with great celebrations. The giants and big heads are enormous figures that dress in traditional Mallorcan clothing and dance the “Ball de Bot”, the traditional Mallorcan dance. You can also find artisan stalls, food stalls and concerts in most towns on the island.

March 1 is the perfect day to go out, discover and… be proud of being Mallorcan!
