Santa Marija: The peak of the Maltese festa season

back...

A tradition which dates back to the 16th century, known as the festa.  This is done by decorating the village church with hundreds of lights, having a marching band play music through the streets while statue bearers carry a statue of the patron saint, and by putting on some impressive fireworks displays!

The festa season in Malta reaches its peak in the middle of August when thousands of locals and foreigners come together to celebrate the feast of Santa Marija on the 15th of August.  The feast is one of the most popular of the village feasts and in fact, it is celebrated in around 8 different towns and villages around the Maltese islands.  These are: Għaxaq, Gudja, Attard, Mosta, Mqabba, Qrendi, Birkirkara and Victoria, Gozo.  One of the reasons it is so highly celebrated is connected to the Second World War, when one of the most crucial supplies of food and fuel arrived in Malta on the 15th of August 1942.  Most locals travel to the sister island, Gozo on the weekend of Santa Marija every year to enjoy the celebrations there.
