If you’re new to the island, you may have realised that locals are big on their feasts, or festi in Maltese. But what are festi, anyway? Well, in a nutshell, each village in Malta has its own patron saint, and each saint has a designated day of celebration. And that means, party-time.
Festi are great family-friendly events that feature yummy street food, fun party stalls (with balloons, toys etc.), and the highlight of it all: pretty impressive fireworks. The Birkirkara feast is a favourite among the Maltese, so it’s definitely worth a visit.
