Mallorca’s largest traditional fair attracts visitors from all over the island as it’s a fun-filled day-long event for all the family.
For the Dijous Bo, the small town in the island’s interior attracts exhibitors and visitors from all parts of Mallorca and even from the other Balearic islands. On this festive day, you can easily find 200,000 people in Inca’s streets. While Dijous Bo used to be an important cattle market, it has now turned into a lively fun fair that has something on offer for everyone.
What to expect
A range of cultural and sporting activities start a few days beforehand, such as painting and chess competitions and a rally. Most of the activities, however, take place on Wednesday and Thursday, including a cattle market, competitions, company presentations, correfoc and music.
Diverse stands offer arts and crafts, leather goods and mallorcan produce. In addition, there are fun rides and many other attractions.
A few days later, the next event takes place in Caimari: in the Feria del Aceite (Olive fair), everything is centred around olives and oil: in an oil press, you can see how oil is produced, in the street, you can sample and buy typical mallorcan products, learn how olives are harvested and listen to popular songs describing the work in the fields.
This is Mallorca’s largest traditional fair and is the last of four fairs that take place in Inca during October and November. Train services from Palma to Inca are usually increased to cope with the demand from those who wish to avoid traffic and parking problems in Inca.
