Village feasts, commonly known as festi, are a staple of Maltese summers. While they’re technically celebrated throughout the year, the majority of festi take place during the summer months.

People across the Maltese Islands gather in their respective villages to celebrate their patron saint, enjoy some traditional food, listen to the local banda, and watch the fireworks – activities we’ve all been looking forward to following the outbreak of COVID-19.

With that being said, here are all the village feasts taking place in Malta and Gozo this month:

Sunday, 3rd September

  • Qawra: St Francis of Assisi
  • Sliema: St Gregory the Great
  • Żurrieq: St Catherine
  • Valletta: St Augustine
