Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best way to get to a feast?

- The best way would be by bus as you will have no hassle to find parking. You will need to plan early. If you own or are renting a car we suggest that you do not leave late as many roads leading to the village will be closed and parking will be more difficult.

When is the best time to go to a village feast?

- Well... the best time is always during summer, mostly during the peak months of June to August.

Do many Maltese people attend the feasts?

- Yes, lots of Maltese attend the feasts, especially if one of their patron saints is celebrating their feast.

What do I find in a village feast?

- First of all you will find the main village streets decorated with pavilions and lights. Their parish church will be fully decorated from the inside and outside. You will also see fireworks especially the main feasts. On the day of the feast which is generally on a Sunday, most of the parishes will have a procession.

Things You Should Keep In Mind Before Going to a Malta Village Feast
Things You Should Keep In Mind Before Going to a Malta Village Feast

- 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.

- 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 carrying any wallets and mobile phones, make sure they are safe in your pockets.

- If your accommodation is near a village that has a feast during the time of your stay, expect to hear firework explosions from early in the morning. Calendar is down below to know if there will be a feast during your stay.

- 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.
