Fiesta Dates 2019

Fiesta Dates 2019

The Fiesta season is finally here, kicking off in style at Ciutadella with the Fiestas of Sant Joan. This one is by far the most popular and traditional throughout Spain. From now until September, the villages celebrate their own smaller-scale fiesta marking their own religious origin and patron saint’s day. While Menorca is known to be a tranquil and quiet island, the locals sure do know how to throw a party.

During the fiestas the businesses close, and streets are cordoned off and fairground rides are set up and young and old turn out into the streets. In addition to the games, races and competitions during the day, there are concerts at night and firework displays on the final night. The real focal point of any fiesta is without a doubt however is the ‘jaleo’.
 
Fiesta de Mao
The Jaleo 
 
 
The jaleo is a spectacle that is not seen anywhere else around the world. Dating back to medieval times, the beautiful black Menorcan horses with their riders, dressed in black tailcoats, white trousers and three-pointed hats, make their way into the square in twos and threes, welcomed by cheering spectators. The horses show off their skills and dance on their hind legs in time with the jaleo melody played by the brass band. The fiesta atmosphere is infectious, and it’s one to witness!
