What's on in Mallorca August 2019

As we head into August, the summer season is at its peak and Mallorca’s jam-packed calendar of events continues to impress. Whether it’s beach parties, live music concerts, traditional festivals or sports competitions that tickle your taste buds, there’s something for everyone.

Here’s our comprehensive insider's guide to some of Mallorca’s best events throughout August.

Local festivals

The Fiesta de La Patrona in Pollença holds its reputation as one of the most popular traditional festivals on the island, and it always takes place over the first weekend in August. The biggest event is the legendary mock battle between Moors and Christians where the locals dress in 16th-century clothes and reenact the fight against the Ottoman pirates lead by Dragut who, in 1550, attacked the town. If you want to see the best of the action, then make sure you head to the city hall at 17:00 on August 2nd and follow the procession and mock battles through the streets of Pollença's old town.

On the eastern side of the island, the tourist resort of Cala d’Or hosts two weeks of festivities starting at the beginning of August with a busy schedule to keep the whole family entertained.
