The Malta Tourism Authority has just launched the 2017 Calendar of Events for the Maltese Islands. Produced for the third consecutive year, this 88-page publication is a compilation of the main events taking place in Malta and Gozo for the coming year.
The calendar lists all events which may be of interest to both tourists and locals, including musical events, sports, folklore, re-enactments and others. The main events for each month, such as the Valletta International Baroque Festival in January, the International Fireworks Festival in April, Isle of MTV Malta Special in June, and the Notte Bianca in October, are highlighted with greater prominence. The calendar also includes a handy Index of Traditional Village Feasts and ends with a forward glimpse to 2018 when Valletta will be European Capital of Culture.
MTA CEO, Mr. Paul Bugeja, said that “the Malta Tourism Authority considers events to be a prime component of our tourism product, one which makes our destination more attractive. From the marketing perspective, our calendar of events provides us with a tool that helps showcase the variety of activities taking place in Malta and Gozo throughout the year, which our visitors may choose to attend or participate in. We note with satisfaction that the number of events listed grows each year, which is testament to the hard work put in by all individuals and entities involved.” Mr. Bugeja concluded by thanking the organisers of these events, and the MTA team that compiles all the data into one easy to navigate booklet.
