Travel to a traditional village known for staging the island’s best festa-eve fireworks, and throw yourself into the fun.

  • Malta village evening ‘festa’ and fireworks tour
  • Learn about Malta’s beloved ‘festa’ feast days and traditions
  • Travel to a village known for its best-festa-eve fireworks display
  • Stroll around the lanes and enjoy the festive atmosphere and entertainments
  • Admire the illuminated parish church, shop at sweet and food stalls, and listen to marching bands
  • Watch a spectacular fireworks display
  • Family-friendly tour with air-conditioned transport, plus pickup and drop-off at select Malta locations included
After pickup (select hotels only) in Sliema, Valletta, Bugibba, or other locations on Malta, settle into your air-conditioned vehicle and travel to one of the island's traditional villages.

On route, admire Malta’s countryside and listen as your guide points out of places of interest. Hear about Malta’s tradition of festas — religious feast days usually held during summer and organized by parish churches.

With 80 festas held annually across Malta and Gozo, these events are a major part of local life, and feature church decorations, processions, marching bands, food stalls, and fireworks displays — the latter on the festa eve.

On arrival at the village — chosen for holding what are considered the best-festa-eve fireworks — enjoy time to tour and explore. Visit the parish church to admire the decorations, and enjoy free time to wander through the illuminated streets and join the celebrations.

Peruse the prettily lit stalls selling festa sweets and other goodies, and enjoy the music from marching brass bands. Then, experience a brilliant fireworks show, watching the stars and rockets crackle overhead and light up the sky with bursts of color.

Your tour then finishes with a drop-off back at the original starting point.

We went on this tour last year...

We went on this tour last year. Fireworks were out of this world, and a definite must see, but please be aware of the following. The tour guide was sadly lacking in knowledge. She told us that we could see the fireworks from the main square. If we had stayed there we would have missed most of the display. We decided to follow the band, which took us to the right of the square, up the hill, and from there had a great view. She also told us the bus would leave straight after the finale, but could give us no idea of what time that would be. When the main display had finished we went back to the square, where they had an orchestra, which was excellent, and then some more fireworks from the roof of the main building. We were not sure that that was the finale, but asked a local who said not. A couple of people stayed with us, but all were worried about the bus going without us. We stayed as long as we dared, making plans to get a taxi back if necessary. All very stressful. We finally gave up and walked up the hill to the bus and guess what. The finale started. We could see a few fireworks, but not all of them. When we got on the bus, the majority of people had been sat there since the first display, over an hour before, because they were so worried about missing the bus. Tour guides should have in-depth knowledge of the tour they are guiding. And from what she said, it wasnt the first time she had done this tour. Having said all that, the fireworks were absolutely amazing. The music was brilliant and the fireworks were so in time to the music, i have never seen a display as fantastic. If in doubt, follow the band, who were also amazing.

We found this not worth the money. Fireworks were good but no brilliant, toilets were broken, they ran half hour late so we missed half street fireworks due to having to catch a bus!

Transport arrived nearly 30 mins...

Transport arrived nearly 30 mins late, so not a good start. Village decorated really well and a 2 hour visit would have been sufficient. Fireworks were disappointing - In the sky fireworks lasted 90 minutes, but could have been condensed down to under an hour. Guide told us where to go for the ground based fireworks, which were held elsewhere in the village, and we missed it! Spending 6 hours on this tour was way too long
