In Inca, the capital of the Raiguer region, you will find a great representation of the city’s roots and history by exploring its fairs, which you cannot miss between 21 October and 5 November.

Dijous Bo is traditionally celebrated on the fourth Thursday following the feast of Saint Luke, normally the third Thursday in November. It tells the story of the origins of Raiguer, a region of Mallorca that began celebrating these festivities in Inca as a meeting point for the island’s farmers, with a market selling animals and typical local food products. Today Dijous Bo 2023, the big fair that takes place on 16 November, continues to pass on the history of this part of Mallorca to all those who come to visit and to introduce the region’s flavours to lucky diners, in addition to many other delightful surprises: exhibitions, recitals, sports events, competitions, dancing, and much more

You won’t find a better place in Mallorca to discover the footwear and leather industry, which is highly renowned in the municipality. It began in the 15th century with the shoemakers’ guilds and continues to this day, with some of the most important brands in Mallorca, such as Camper, Farrutx, Munper, Lottusse, Barrats, George’s.

If you are a lover of crafts, you will also enjoy its ceramics, painted crockery and decorative plates, and you will surely want to take home a traditional ‘siurell’, a clay figurine painted red and green with a whistle attached that was used by shepherds to control their flocks and even used to compose songs, some of which are still played today in Mallorcan folk dances.

The animals will arouse the curiosity of the youngest members of the family and among the many delicious treats on offer there, you will find ‘galletes d’oli’, also known as ‘galletes d’Inca’ or ‘pa de barca’, which first appeared in the 19th century as a bread-substitute for sailors who spent long periods at sea. The Quely factory, a pioneer in the production of this product, is also located in this town. This is a delicacy that can be enjoyed by anyone, whether they have a sweet tooth or prefer savoury snacks. It can be served with ‘sobrassada’, a typical Mallorcan cured sausage, or simply with oil and salt.

And don’t forget to enjoy Dimecres Bo as well, a popular dance, or ‘revetla’, held as a prelude to Dijous Bo 2023 that takes place to the music of the Setmana Gran del Dijous Bo.

There are also three other important celebrations for the Fires d’Inca: the Fira de la Terra, on 21 and 22 October, with activities related to science and recycling, among others; the Fira de l’Esport i de l’Oci, on 28 and 29 October, including the motor fair and the leather fair, for example; and the Fira d’Època, on 4 and 5 November, with a Medieval Market that will allow you to travel back in time, with endless different activities for the whole family.

And if you’d like to explore the Mallorcan countryside, you can travel to Inca by train, using public transport with Serveis Ferroviaris de Mallorca. From Dimecres Bo onwards, special timetables have been set up to cater for the thousands of visitors who come to the event.
