Las Fiestas del Rei en Jaume, Santa Ponsa

One of the Biggest Parties of the Year

Categorised in:

The annual festival of the Rei en Jaume is celebrated in Santa Ponsa, Calvià at the beginning of September. The festival celebrates the successful landing and conquering of the Moors in Mallorca by King Jaime I in 1229. 

This year, the festive programme consists of more than 60 cultural, leisure and traditional activities such as concerts, exhibitions, nit de foc, medieval market, thematic fiestas, parades, traditional dancing, cross swimming, etc. 

Highlights include a parade of giants, DJ sessions at the weekends, a 'night of fire' followed by a foam party, and a medieval market where you can sample all sorts of curious food and drink offerings. The star of the show comes on the Saturday 12th September, when a re-enactment of the landings and the battles take place on Playa Grande beach & Calo d'en Pellicer beach, with the final battle being held on Santa Ponca beach. Expect firecrackers and much rejoicing! Fireworks mark the closing of the fiesta in the evening of the final Sunday.
