Discover The Festas Malta

The Maltese love partying. Throughout the year, various events, processions, brass bands, fireworks displays liven up the archipelago. Each city, even the smallest, hosts its own 'Festa'. Dedicated to the patron saint of the city, it involves fancy-dress contests between rival factions, for the Maltese are very territory conscious and this extends to their cultural traditions. Thus, the 'Festa' of each parish is worth a trip, the most important being those of Saint Peter in Mdina (29th June) and Saint Dominic in Valletta (1st August).
