What's On in Mallorca February 2018

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 islands 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 4 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 IX Fira de la Flor d'Ametler on Sunday 4th February 2018. The Almond 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 hours.

Carnaval, Carnaval!


Every year Mallorca celebrates the onset of Lent with street parties and parades, whilst many towns participate, Palma’s Sa Rua & Sa Rueta Carnival are the most spectacular celebrations. The city comes to life with vibrant floats and dancers occupy the streets on Sunday 11th February. Sa Rueta is the children’s event which takes place on the Sunday morning between 10:30 and 13:30 whilst Sa Rua is the adult version and main event which is held from 17:00 the same day. 

The 8 at Palma Cathedral


Admirers of Palma’s Gothic cathedral should head on down there at 08:00 in the morning on 2nd February. 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 the 11th of November (the feast of Sant Martin) and the 2nd February (the feast of La Candelaria), so don’t miss it!

Art exhibitions


If you are an art enthusiast or looking for a small piece yourself, then the Art Per a La Vida 2 exhibition at Rialto Living is a must between the 31st January and the 11th February. 62 of Mallorca’s artists have come together in the name of charity to support Projecte Hombre Balears, an association that helps drug addicts in the Balearics. Each lithograph costs only 30€, that way the charity can collect as much money as possible.

Live theatre


For an evening out with the family, we would highly recommend booking tickets for Frozen the Musical as Palma's Auditorium becomes the castle of sisters Elsa and Anna for just two evenings on the 10th and 11th February 2018. A large ensemble of singers and dancers, amazing special effects and 3D projections will bring the magic of Walt Disney’s Frozen to life. 

Sporting events


The world-series Powerman Mallorca Duathlon will be taking place in Ca’n Picafort in the north-west of the island on the 17th. There are three races taking place but the long distance race has become one of the most recognised Duathlons in the world and comprises of a 10km run and a 60km cycle ride, followed by another 10km run!
