Fiestas in Llucmajor

Winter fiestas begin in Llucmajor with the fiesta of Sant Antoni (Saint Anthony), the patron saint of animals. Bonfires are lit in the village streets, around which villagers roast different kinds of pork sausages, sing songs and play the ximbomba, a primitive rhythm instrument. Musical parades accompanied by cabezudos, giants with typically large heads, parade through the streets in S´Arenal and in S´Estanyol and there are performances of ball d´aferrat, a typical folk dance. Animals are traditionally given a blessing the following day in front of a statue of the saint.

 

During the second week in August, Llucmajor celebrates the fiestas of Santa Cándida, the most important of the summer celebrations that take place in the area. The religious acts in honour of this saint combine cultural events, concerts and folk dance performances. The lively musical parade through the streets led by giants with typically large heads (gigantes y cabezudos) accompanied by the municipal band is of particular interest.

 

In Llucmajor, the autumn fiesta cycle, one of the island´s most popular, begins on September 29, Saint Miquel´s day, with the first Fira de Tardor (Autumn Fair). A wide variety of products can be found on the second and third fair days, which take place on the two following Sundays. Gastronomy week, a handicrafts and industrial products exhibition, country fair and cattle competition are some of the events which make up the celebration.
