program fira eivissa medieval 2018


The mayor of Ibiza, Rafa Ruiz, has highlighted the strong cultural content of this 19th edition of EIVISSA MEDIEVAL in which there will be traveling shows from more than 20 different companies, concerts, exhibitions and plays. The Puget Museum, the MACE and the Center d'Interpretació Madina Yabisa will also be open to the public.
The Councilman of Festivities of the Town Council of Ibiza, Agustín Perea, explained that Eivissa Medieval 2018 will have 150 posts, of which 60 will be of people living in Ibiza. As usual, there will also be exhibitions of local artisans with the traditional trades of the island, which, as always, will be located on Antoni Palau Street.
Dalt Vila, part of the Marina, the Plaza del Parque and, for the first time, the Plaza de Sa Tarongeta will house various gastronomic, recreational, cultural and educational activities. Performances will be carried out by 17 touring animation groups. There will also be demonstrations of 17 craft workshops working on leather, calligraphy, pottery or esparto.
The Ibiza Town Council this year has increased the number of activities for the youngest, which will take place in the Baluart de San Pere, in the Plaza de Sa Tarongeta and in the Plaza del Parque. In addition, the Dracs d'Eivissa association will offer medieval games, softcombat, chroma and painting workshops in the cathedral area for teenagers.

Educational and cultural activities
For the first time, Eivissa Medieval will also have an educational character with the realization of a didactic unit addressed to 1st and 2nd Primary, baptized as 'A Return for the Medieval Eivissa'. Through this initiative the children will know the history of their city in a playful and participatory way, being the last of the activities to walk around Dalt Vila during the first morning of the medieval with some costumes that they themselves will have made.

Throughout the four days all visitors can enjoy children's theater, medieval tournaments, exhibitions and parades such as the Cossiers de l'Escola de Música i Dansa de Mallorca. The music will form an outstanding part of the program with concerts such as the singing of Ensemble Organum, considered one of the best medieval music choirs in the world.
The Arxiu Històric d'Eivissa will organize for the occasion the exhibition 'En tiempos de Felipe II' in the hall of the Refectory of the former Convent of the Dominicans.
Also worth highlighting is the concert of the Ciutat d'Eivissa Symphonic Band, which will take place on Sunday, May 13 at 12 o'clock in the cloister of the Ibiza Town Hall.
On the other hand, the medieval jousting will return to the Reina Sofia park in charge of the Drakonia group, every day at 11.30 and 18.30.

 This year a contest of local stalls will be organized again, in which the best decoration and the best handmade product will be awarded. The prizes are € 300 in each category and the possibility of choosing a location the following year.
To spread the event more widely, from Wednesday until Saturday a photocall will be installed at the airport in Ibiza with two halberdiers that will encourage all the people who come to the island to take pictures and get close to the city. For this reason, 15,000 programs have been made in Catalan / Spanish; 7,000 in English and an offprint from the cultural program.
To facilitate access to the Medieval Eivissa fair, from Thursday 10 May to Sunday 13 will be enabled three free bus lines that will tour the city's car parks to transport visitors to the Paseo de Vara de Rey and Es Soto.
This year's  budget dedicated to Medieval Eivissa were 200,000 euros, of which 15,000 euros correspond to the Balearic Government, which collaborates for the first time.
