Next Saturday 18th May, the Calvià Youth Department is getting ready to celebrate the long-awaited Friqui Day 2024 at Es Generador. This event, which is part of the annual programme of cultural and recreational initiatives in Calvià, promises to be a unique experience for all Friqui enthusiasts.

Friqui Day 2024 is a tribute to friqui culture and its followers. On this occasion, the Es Generador facilities will be transformed into a geek convention from 17:00 to 22:00, where attendees can enjoy a variety of workshops and activities related to anime, manga, video games and much more. Inspired by the iconic characters of ‘The Big Three of Manga’: Naruto, Dragon Ball and One Piece, the event will be inclusive for all variants of geekdom, including Marvel, DC, Star Wars, epic fantasy, the most popular series and movies, as well as role-playing games.

For the first time, a K-Pop exhibition has been organised, led by K-Pop Baleares. In addition, Random Kpop dance sessions will be offered on the dance floor, guaranteeing an experience full of rhythm and fun. Another of the main activities of the day will be the cosplay catwalk, with the presence of professional cosplayers from Amigos de la Ciencia Ficción who will liven up the party and walk around the venue.

In addition, there will be a competition organised by the Shinigamis association, which will offer valuable prizes that can be exchanged for season tickets in specialised shops. The competition will evaluate the craftsmanship of the costume making process, the fidelity to the character and the quality of the presentation, both individually and as a group. There will also be a video games area with many new features, offering a variety of platforms and the opportunity to play classics and new games in a social way.
