The Birgu Fest is an annual event which takes place in one of Malta’s oldest and most historic cities, Birgu (also known as Vittoriosa).
The main reason of this festival is to highlight Birgu’s historic and architectural beauty. Another event which was included in the Birgufest is the Birgu by Candlelight, which highlight the locality’s romantic touch. The streets are lit up with a gentle glow by thousands of candles of all kinds.
During the three days several activities take place, amongst which historic re-enactments, extended and cheaper museum entrances, and the opening up to the public of other venues of interest including churches. In addition, food stalls offer a taste of the local produce and there are also various musical concerts – ranging from classical to modern.
Venue: Birgu (Vittoriosa)
