On September 19th-21nd 2019, for the 23rd time, Palma will again start into the art season with gallery openings, shows, street performances and many creative happenings. In this most anticipated of cultural events in town, about 20 museums, ateliers and showrooms all open their doors from 7p.m. till midnight, offering firsthand glimpses into the City's vibrant contemporary art scene. The good news is: It's all free!
Although many serious art connoisseurs from all over Europe are drawn to the exhibitions, you don't have to be a fan or collector to join the festive mood. Thousands of visitors mill through the narrow streets of Palma's old town, enjoying this mix of art spectacle and traditional Mallorquin fiesta with surprise installations, spontaneous performances and the works of hundreds of artists on show.
For collectors and serious fans: Previews are on the September 20th.
So, don't miss out on this!

Affordable Mallorca Tip # 1: As the evening progresses, some of the visitors might get high not on the fascinating art, but on too much alcohol. So, our recommendation is to come early.
Affordable Mallorca Tip # 2: If you prefer taking in the art in a quieter atmosphere, use the Nit de l'Art to get a general impression and come back on another day to specifically see what caught your eye. For the art newbies: Don't be shy to enter a Gallery! People love to show you around.
