August is an important month for Ibiza’s locals, as well as being one of the best opportunities to explore the island and join in with its festivities.
During the first two weeks of August, the city of Ibiza gets its glad rags on to celebrate its community festivals with endless activities and commemorative events. The Festes de la Terra are a very special celebration and a unique opportunity for locals and tourists alike to explore Ibiza’s history, heritage and popular culture, first-hand.
From August 5th-8th, crafts, traditional dance (ball pagès), trips around rural Ibiza, cuisine, workshops, sports competitions, live music and fireworks pack Ibiza’s agenda from early morning through to sunrise the following day.
One of the most important days during the Festes de la Terra is August 5th. This is the day of the Virgen de Las Nieves, the patron of Ibiza and Formentera. On August 8th, Ibiza celebrates Sant Ciriaco, in memory of the Catalan conquest on the island which took place in 1235.
The Festes de la Terra is the perfect time to travel to Ibiza, enjoy its summer vibe and explore the history and true essence of the city of Eivissa, which was declared Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO in 1999.
The best bit? When the Festes de la Terra come to an end, the festivities in the Figueretas area, one of the most popular areas in Ibiza, are just getting started. The festivities in Figueretas draw to a close with a firework display on August 15th, which takes place on Figueretas beach. One of the best spots to take in this spectacular visual display is from the terraces at the Torre del Mar hotel.
