Sant Jordi 2024 is about to arrive in Palma. An event organised by the Gremi de Llibreters de Mallorca (Booksellers’ Guild of Mallorca) with the support of the Consell and Palma City Council. This year’s Diada de Sant Jordi promises a day full of magic, books and entertainment in the streets of the city. Various activities have been prepared to liven up this special day to commemorate Book Day 2024 in Palma, on the 23rd of April.

One of the most outstanding novelties of 2024 is the hiring of three street entertainment groups, selected to offer entertainment for all ages. Starting at 5:00 pm, the public will be able to enjoy travelling shows that will tour the city’s emblematic ‘paradetes’.

Animation in Palma on Book Day

The group Estupendos Burruños will delight with a vibrant musical parade, filling the streets with wind and percussion melodies. On the other hand, Stromboli Events will transport you to a world of fantasy with their performance “Sant Jordi and the rose”, where the characters will come to life before the eyes of the audience. Finally, the street animation entitled ‘Escriu la teva història’, presented by Qmiras Producciones, will make a living book the protagonist of an unforgettable experience.
