And the winner of the 2014 One Small World Awards category of Europe’s Most Outrageous Festival is….

Mallorca’s Es Firo!

Es Firo-12Without a doubt, one of Europe’s most unique and exciting festivals, Es Firó on the Balearic island of Mallorca places onlookers right in the middle of the action. Explosions, gunfire, snarling pirates, this is historical homage at its most edgy and visceral.

Add to that a pervasive sense of mischief and fun, a strong community spirit and a flare for the dramatic and Es Firó is an unforgettable event full of memorable characters set against the stunning backdrop of one of the Mediterranean’s most beautiful islands.

Expect the unexpected, and don’t forget your earplugs!
