Maltese annual national event ‘Birgufest’ to be held in October

Published on : Monday, February 18, 2013

maltaBirgufest is an event which takes place in Birgu (also known as Vittoriosa), one
of Malta’s oldest and most historic cities. This event has now become an annual
national event. This year Birgufest will be held from October 11-12.

From inception the aim was to highlight Birgu’s historic and architectural beauty
and the Birgu by candlelight, now incorporated in Birgufest, was set up to
highlight this in a romanatic manner. The streets are lit up with a gentle glow by
thousands of candles of all kinds.

However, Birgufest has developed into a larger event with a wider scope, offering
numerous activities throughout the festival. The historic re-enactments, extended
and cheaper museum entrances, and the opening up to the public of other venues of
interest including churches, highlight the immense historic value of this city.

In addition, food stalls offering both Maltese and other food, various musical
concerts – ranging from classical to modern, and various exhibitions, make this
event truly an outing with something to suit all tastes and ages.
