What's On in Mallorca March 2019

While February has been exceptionally warm this year, March officially marks the beginning of spring so you can expect an average of seven hours of sunshine per day and temperatures reaching the high teens. Days begin to last longer, sun worshippers start hitting the beaches and wildflowers start to bloom.

It's a wonderful time to enjoy Mallorca's countryside, whether it be hiking, cycling or more adventurous activities like canyoning there are plenty of things to do. There’s also a great selection of events taking place throughout March, read on for our guide to the month's biggest and best ones.

Cultural events

It’s certainly a colourful start to the month as Sa Rua Carnival kicks off this weekend. Whilst towns and villages have their own parades, Palma hosts the biggest and best – we highly recommend the main spectacle on Sunday afternoon. From 17:00, the streets of Palma are bursting with vibrant colours, music and dancing as the floats travel through the streets of the city with thousands taking part. The starting point will be Paseo Mallorca, continuing along Jaume III, Joan Carles I square, Unió street, Riera street and La Rambla.

A quieter annual affair can be found at the Fira del Fang Pottery Fair, held at Sant Marcel Church in Marratxi between March 9th and 17th. It’s a great opportunity for potters and other ceramic workers from around the island to promote their work and products. If you are looking to buy good quality, authentic Mallorcan ceramic products at a reasonable price, then this is well worth the trip. The event will also be accompanied by regional folk dancing and music concerts.

Fun & games

The Fira del Ram is the island’s biggest fairground and it returns to Son Fusteret on the outskirts of Palma between February 28th and April 28th 2019. This funfair is always a great day out for all ages, it has fairground rides for the little ones but thrill-seeking junkies will be pleased to know their needs will also be met.

This one is for the adults – an adrenaline-fuelled, real-life Survival Zombie Game is taking place in the streets of Capdepera on March 9th from 21:00. Not for the faint-hearted, keep in mind that tickets need to be purchased in advance.

Arts & music

Palma Auditorium has an exciting line up for March. On the 2nd and 3rd, Peter Pan takes the stage for the whole family to enjoy. You can also catch a performance from the legendary Balearic Islands Symphony Orchestra on March 14th or 21st. For lovers of ballet, head down to watch Spain's legendary Victor Ullate Ballet celebrate its 30 years of dance. Later in the month, don’t miss the opportunity to see the Brothers in Band - Dire Straits Tribute Band as they visit Palma on the 23rd for their 35th-anniversary tour.

Sports events

The SAR Princesa Sofia Sailing Trophy is a huge dinghy sailing event where more than 50 and 60 nations compete in the Bay of Palma from Friday, March 29th until Saturday, April 6th. Since its first edition in 1968, this event has retained all of its prestige and garnered great media attention – it’s always one to look forward to at this time of year. 

If you are a keen horse rider, perhaps a three-day mountain trail on horseback through the Tramuntana mountains might be of interest. Organised by Hipica Formentor, it takes place between March 17th and 19th. What better way to explore Mallorca’s jaw-dropping landscapes in the west of Mallorca?

More inspiration...

This is just a small selection of all the events taking place in Mallorca this month but there are lots more to choose from.
