La Festa des Vermar is the annual grape harvest festival that includes parades, celebrations, grape-crushing competitions and a wine tasting contest. Don't miss the grape battle! 

The highlight of the festival is the grape battle on Saturday 16th from noon. We recommend you wear old clothes (preferably white!) that you don't mind ruining or stand well back as this one gets messy.

The correfoc on Friday 22nd at 01:30 is also very popular. The fire runs are always entertaining but they can get quite loud and hot so wear something with long sleeves and a hat. Finally, don't miss the wine fair on Saturday 23rd from 17:30, where you can taste local wines at Parc de Sa Rectoria and Plaça de l'Esglesia.

The final day of the festival sees traditional entertainment in the main square. Enjoy the Binissalem giant puppets accompanied by 'xeremiers' earlier in the day as well as free wine served from 16:00 in the church square.

The rest of the festival's events are in the official programme (click on the web link). They include live music, activities for children, wine tasting sessions, grape-stomping competitions and a popular picnic where the traditional "Fideus de Vermar" (a type of paella made with short noodles instead of rice, cooked with lamb, tomatoes, sobrassada and Binissalem red wine) are served. The programme is in Catalan and will be available about a week before the event.
