Feasts In Malta

Village Names, Feast Name and Month – Best Insiders tips.

Date Last Updated: 14th August 2020

All feasts in Malta are very popular. You find religious feasts in every village and town both in Malta and Gozo. The history of religion and traditions is very strong among the local population.

The most popular months of the feast days are May to September due to better weather conditions where every weekend there are several feasts at one go.

This page brings you all the villages and churches in Malta with their names, the feast name and the month in which they occur. This list is based on the Village Feasts since there are various villages that change dates of their feast day.

Most of the villages are a parish and this is not included in each village description. Those that have a different title name are all included in the list.


If you intend to visit Malta for a holiday this page will help you choose the locations where to go for a village feast. Maltese culture is part of these Maltese feasts. You will be amazed and will want to see more. Do not miss the local fireworks displays.

It is to be said that a few feasts are celebrated without any external festivities. It is good to ask before you decide to go. We indicated those which we know about.

The sources to prepare this information is limited and with the variety of information within makes it difficult to have everything correct. We will be pleased to receive your comments to improve the page. To contact us, click here.
