Sineu is eagerly awaiting its patron saint festivities. From the 4th of August the Fiestas de Sineu 2022 will officially begin, a festival which, according to the town council, will have a very special character.

Due to the restrictions of the last two years marked by the pandemic, Sineu has not been able to celebrate its August festivities in all their splendour. But this year everything changes. Sineu is united to return to normality.

The town council has presented the programme for the Fiestas de Sineu 2022 (Les Festes de la Mare de Déu d’agost 2022) with a very original slogan: “Eat the summer” with which they intend to convey a return to normality in order to enjoy the festivities as before.

The programme includes many events and activities to relive the magic of the summer of August in Sineu. The celebrations return to the streets of Sineu where associations and neighbours gather in pink to celebrate Sineu’s most impressive fiestas. And of course, the popular “mucada” or “el muc” will once again be celebrated during these patron saint festivities.

What is the Muc or the Mucada (Pink Party)?

The muc or mucada is a celebration that takes place in Sineu during the Fiestas de la Mare de Déu d’agost. This festival is inspired by the story of a Mallorcan rondalla in which there is talk of a treasure hidden in the Puig del Reig. The legend that inspries this festival tells of the ritual of filling their mouths with oil and going around the Puig del Reig three times with the aim of bringing out a bull, which they call “Muc”, who will guide them and help them to find the treasure hidden in the Puig. This legend has inspired many young people to recreate the story in a festive and colourful way until it became a popular festival. Now, this festival is celebrated every year in the Fiestas de Sineu, dressed in a colourful pink dress with a demon that represents the Muc.

Although we leave you the complete programme of the Fiestas de Sineu 2022, we leave you the most important information of these days.
