Summer’s Flying By, But You Can Still Make It To These Upcoming Festi All Around Malta

Article Featured Image

One of this island’s main summer attractions are the traditional village feasts happening on the island on a weekly basis. Festi (as they’re called in Maltese) are a celebration of each town’s patron saint and commonly involve a church parade, food trucks and a lavish firework display.

We’ve all probably experienced at least one festa this summer (in some way, shape or form) but if you make up the minority who haven’t, don’t worry,  you’re still in luck.
