As most kids head back to school this week, it might feel like summer is over for some but it definitely isn’t over in Mallorca. In fact, September is a popular month for people visiting the island thanks to the flights being cheaper, the weather still beautiful and the sea at its warmest.

There are also plenty of things going on throughout the month. The beach clubs and nightclubs are still running a full schedule of events, while many of the Mallorcan towns celebrate their patron saint in September, so there’s more than enough to keep you entertained while holidaying on the island.

Here is a list of some of the most popular events taking place this month in Mallorca.

Nit de l'Art - Palma

Palma’s famous Nit de l’Art is one of the biggest cultural events of the year and it seems to keep getting bigger and better over the years. Museums and galleries will once again open their doors free of charge but, this year, it won't happen for one night only as the art extravaganza takes place on the 19th, 20th and 21st of September 2019. Thousands of art lovers, locals and tourists will flock to the beautiful city to check out the latest exhibitions and enjoy some live music and tapas.

Melon Fair - Vilafranca de Bonany

If you’re after a traditional fiesta, then Vilafranca de Bonany’s Melon Fair, known to the locals as 'Fira del Melón', might be of interest. It takes place on August 31st and September 1st this year and is a great opportunity to visit a traditional village in the heart of Mallorca’s inland plains. Vilafranca de Bonany will be celebrating the humble fruit with contests, live music, exhibitions and, of course, a market selling all the possible things made with melon and more.

Festa des Vermar - Binissalem

Between September 13th and 29th, the Festa des Vermar or Sa Vermada in Binissalem marks the end of the wine picking season. This town is famous for its viticulture and goes big with the celebrations. On September 21st, at the Poliesportiu, a grape battle commences where grapes are thrown, crushed and fountains of wine are sprayed over the crowds – it’s as messy as it gets. 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.

Festes del Rei en Jaume - Santa Ponça

Celebrate a key date in Mallorca’s history at the Festes del Rei en Jaume, which take place between August 28th and September 8th in Santa Ponça. The whole town comes together to commemorate the arrival of medieval king Jaume I by putting on a packed programme of events, the main one being a reenactment of his landing in Mallorca. On the evening of September 7th 2019, locals will recreate the battle that took place to mark the arrival of the Catalan king to Mallorcan shores in September 1229 when his army famously defeated the Arabs who had conquered the island in the early 10th century.
