Check out this What's On in Mallorca September 2017

Summer is almost over... but not quite finished yet! Many Mallorcan towns celebrate their patron saints in September, nightclubs and beach clubs still run a full schedule of events, so it's a great time to visit the island.

Here is a list of some of the most popular events taking place this month in Mallorca. There's something for everyone!

Festes del Rei en Jaume - Santa Ponça

One of Mallorca's favourite festivals, the Festes del Rei en Jaume, takes place in the first two weeks of September. The whole village of Santa Ponça celebrates the arrival of medieval king Jaume I with a packed programme of events, the main one being a reenactment. This mock battle is performed to recreate the arrival of the Catalan king to Mallorcan shores on the 12th of September of 1229. His army defeated the Arabs who had conquered the island in the early 10th century. This year, it will take place on Saturday 9th.

Harvest Fairs

September also means the arrival of traditional festivities celebrating the harvest. The first one this month is Vilafranca de Bonany's Melon Fair. This small village in the heart of the Mallorcan plains dedicates a whole weekend to honour the humble fruit with contests, live music, exhibitions and, of course, a market selling all the possible things made with melon and more. Right at the end of September is Alcúdia's turn. The famous northern town hosts its autumn fair from the 29th to the 1st of October with tons of entertainment and a busy street market.

Festa des Vermar - Binissalem

The most popular among the island's harvest festivals, the Festa des Vermar or Sa Vermada marks the end of the wine picking season with a grape battle that dyes the town of Binissalem a bright purple hue. Other events include wine tasting sessions, grape-stomping competitions, live music and a popular picnic where the traditional "Fideus de Vermar" are served. This is a type of paella made with short noodles instead of rice, cooked with lamb, tomatoes, sobrassada and Binissalem red wine.
