With October comes the end of the summer season in Mallorca, which doesn’t mean the island becomes idle. On the contrary, October is a popular month for people to visit.

Most of the seasonal hotels remain open until the beginning of November and offer some good rates in October and,  with the average temperature reaching the mid-20s, there’s still enough sun to be soaking up those rays on the beach during the day – just remember to take a jacket out with you in the evenings!

While the beach clubs begin to wrap up, cultural activities, local fiestas and sports competitions steal the spotlight. Harvest fairs, food festivals, races and tennis tournaments are some of the most popular events taking place this month.

Autumn festivals

Early autumn is traditionally associated with the harvest all around Europe, and this is no different in Mallorca. Many of the island's rural towns celebrate with traditional fairs in October where you can expect live folk music, markets, shows and parties. Some last longer than others, such is the case of Llucmajor's autumn fair which carries on over the course of the month between September 30th and October 27th. In the north of the island, you can also commemorate fall in a festive fashion as Alcudia's autumn festival takes place between October 4th and 6th. For arts and crafts, Alaró's guild fair takes place on Sunday, October 6th. AlgaidaConsell and Porreres will also be hosting their own harvest celebrations.

Food fairs

And, after harvesting, we eat! Food and drink seem to be the main focus in October as Mallorca honours its local produce with dozens of festivals all around the island. Take your pick: llampuga ('mahi-mahi' fish) in Cala Ratjada on the weekend of October 11th-13th or llonguets (traditional sandwiches) in Palma every Wednesday throughout the month. Local produce is also celebrated with fairs dedicated to the sobrassada in Campos in mid-October, sweets at the 'Fira Dolça' in Esporles on October 6th, or red peppers ('pebre bord', used to make paprika) in Felanitx on October 20th.

Oktoberfest

With so many Germans living and visiting the island, it should come as no surprise that Oktoberfest is also big here. One of the largest events is Palma’s Pueblo Español Oktoberfest celebration where a whole host of nationalities will be coming together to enjoy some authentic German food and beer between October 3rd and 6th.

Doggie Race at Port Adriano

Start the month surrounded by puppies and participate in Port Adriano's Doggie Race on October 5th. The groundbreaking marina is hosting a 2km run for dogs and humans to promote adoptions, raise awareness about the responsibilities of having a pet and try and make Calvia more pet-friendly each year. There will also be a Doggie Zone with games, a veterinarian centre, a pet shop and, most importantly, an area to learn more about how to adopt a pet.

Palma de Mallorca Marathon

This year, the increasingly popular Palma de Mallorca Marathon takes place on Sunday, October 13th. Thousands are expected to take part in events and races going on over the weekend. A half marathon, a 10km race, a breakfast run, a pasta party and the Palma kid's run are just some of the other events taking place, which means there is something for every age and running ability. If running is not your thing, you can just watch them trot along some of Palma's most iconic monuments, including the cathedral.
