Coach Tourism Council


The long Maltese summers herald festa (feast) time. No visit to the Islands between May and September would be complete without seeing a religious village festa in full swing. It's a chance to catch a slice of Island life close up and be part of a tradition that stretches back to the 16th century.

Two words define a Maltese village feast: saints and fireworks. The week-long festivities celebrate the parish patron saint. The celebrations themselves end in the grand finale of a firework display. Along the way, there is plenty of brass band music, peeling of bells and street life.

Festas may seem chaotic exuberance at times, but a lot of careful planning goes into organising the week. And the event is still very much a spiritual affair. You won't need to plan though to see one while you're here. In summer, there's at least a couple of feasts every weekend.

This is a unique opportunity to mingle around with the local population during their village festa. After having visited the decorated church with our guide, you are given free time to visit the various shops and stalls.
