What Are The Best Village Feasts On The Island?

  • Without a doubt one of the most popular feasts on the island is the one of Santa Marija (15th August). This feast is celebrated in 9 villages. We suggest you visit the ones in Mosta, Mqabba, Qrendi and Rabat.
  • If you want to go to a more extravagant feast where they celebrate with much passion, you may want to visit Hamrun, the feast San Gejtanu or of the Immaculate Conception. Other villages with massive feasts which we highly recommend you visit are of Zurrieq (23rd July & 3rd September), St George or Sebastian in Qormi.
  • For great firework displays, we highly suggest you go and see the St. Peter in Chains, Birzebbuga ground fireworks which are held usuaully on a Saturday evening. Another village with great fireworks is Lija for the feast of Christ Our Saviour (6th August). Mqabba, celebrated on the 15th August is also a great village for fireworks.

4 Tips Before Going to a Malta Village Feast 2024

  1. The main roads and squares of the village will be closed for traffic during most of the day. If you intend to go, by car, traffic is not permitted through those areas.

  2. As many people attend the feasts, pick-pocketing is at a higher risk. If you are taking a camera make sure you strap it well round your neck. If you are carrying any wallets and mobile phones, make sure they are safe in your pockets.

  3. If your accommodation is near a village that has a feast during the time of your stay, expect to hear fireworks from early in the morning.

  4. Since most of the villages will have fireworks displays you must keep distance from them especially the pyrotechnic displays . Most of the time the air fireworks are fired from the outskirts of the village.
