What's on in Mallorca February 2019

February is here bearing longer days, more hours of sun and a slow but steady awakening of the island. It is one of the most beautiful months to spend some time in Mallorca as the island's illustrious almond blossom reaches full bloom. 

Whether it be a hiking holiday, a Valentine's trip or a city break, there will be plenty of local fiestas, fairs, art exhibitions and sporting events taking place over the month. So let’s see if we can tempt you!

Almond blossom season

With more than four million almond trees on the island, they are a huge part of Mallorca’s landscape. Almond blossom is at its most beautiful at the moment, which means Son Servera will be celebrating the X Fira de la Flor d'Ametler on Sunday, February 3rd 2019. This fair offers a wide range of almond-orientated products with stalls selling different types of almonds, arts and crafts made from almond wood, almond oil, almond-scented candles, perfumes and floral crafts made from almond blossom. It will be open from 09:30 until 14:30 and there will be a performance from Agrupació Folklòrica Sa Revetla at 12:00.

Events Calendar for Mallorca

Light Festival at Palma Cathedral

Admirers of Palma’s Gothic cathedral should head on down there at 08:00 in the morning on February 2nd for the Light Festival. The sun’s position at this time will cast an image of the rosette window in Palma Cathedral on the opposite wall forming a figure of eight. This spectacular display only occurs twice per year, on November 11th (the feast of Sant Martin) and February 2nd (the feast of La Candelaria), so don’t miss it!

Sights in Mallorca

Live music & theatre

Lovers of theatre, ballet and skating should be booking tickets for Beauty & the Beast on Ice at Palma’s Auditorium on February 2nd and 3rd 2019. The show, which has been put together by the Ice Palace of Moscow, is touring Spain for the first time. If you want something with a bit more energy, the Spirit of the Dance seizes the stage for four days between February 7th and 10th. Prepare to be wowed as these guys are winners of nine Global awards which include Best Choreography and Best International Producer.

This month, the island is treating you to some of the best classical music too. The two dates to hear the Balearic Symphony Orchestra are February 14th and 21st, an ideal plan for Valentine’s Day. There’s also the chance to hear the best American swing live, as the Glenn Miller Orchestra visit Trui Theatre on  February 15th.

Adventures on horseback

Hipica Formentor is organising a three-day mountain trail on horseback – from February 17th to 19th – through some of the most spectacular landscapes on the island, the Tramuntana mountains. This is a chance to discover the authentic, wild Mallorca visiting almond and olive groves, woodlands, steep mountain climbs, picturesque villages and ancient man-made structures. If that is not enough, you will also get the chance to sleep at the charming Lluc Monastery and eat traditional Mallorcan cuisine... the perfect February escapade.
