Paceville is the vibrant nightlife hub of Malta, situated in St. Julians, it is bustling with clubs, bars and restaurants found lining the streets.  All main clubs are situated close to each other and entrance to most is free!

The beginning of summer in Malta brings with it the biggest open air concert on the islands.  Held annually at the Floriana Granaries, just outside the Capital city Valletta, the Isle of MTV is a free entrance concert that attracts around 50,000 people and is screened on MTV in several countries.

But there is more… Wine and Beer festivals, concerts and organised events happen all year round. Ask us for more information and we can plan your stay around a specific event.

A dose of Culture?

Come to Malta and experience a traditional Maltese festa (religious feast) for a real opportunity to enjoy a local tradition in village life. These are held between May and September. Be prepared for bands, processions, church bells, firework displays, street stalls, street parties, extravagantly lit and decorated churches, intricate street decorations, confetti throwing, processions where townsfolk carry heavy life-size
religious statues and authentic qubbajt (traditional nougats).

Most localities organise traditional cultural events, which are usually associated with the particular tradition or produce of that village, this includes the Bread Festival, a Strawberry Festival, Military and Adventure Festival and many others. These events, from re-enactments of historic events to agriculture festivals, occur throughout the year, and provide a great insight into the history and culture of individual localities. These festivals proudly organised by the local councils are very popular with the locals. This is a great opportunity to mingle with the Maltese in a truly traditional Maltese environment!

Good Friday and Easter Sunday are very important religious dates in the local calendar. Good Friday Processions across the islands involve the depiction of scenes from the passion and death of Jesus Christ and various people dressed as biblical characters. Easter Sunday is a day of jubilation where families go to Sunday Mass followed by processions bearing the Risen Christ (in The Three Cities the statue bearers actually run with the Statue).  Following the services tradition is that families join for a large Easter Lunch where children can finally devour their Easter chocolate eggs and traditional figolla (an almond based cake).

Carnival

Carnival is a fantastic spectacle here in Malta and is centered mainly in Valletta (capital city of Malta). A colourful mix of large moving satirical floats and dancers in extravagant costumes fill the streets.

The carnival activities in Gozo offer a different spectacle but one that everyone should get to see …this is a macabre feast in which it is perfectly acceptable to take to the streets, indulging in harmless revelry and where participants dress up with masks for anonymity.  The Nadur spontaneous Carnival is unique among the many manifestations of Carnival. It is not one organized by any committee and subsequently no rules apply. Sunset invites a multitude of masked and hooded creatures to throng the streets of Nadur – creatures wearing all kinds of funny and grotesque costumes. It  is considered to be one of the best carnivals in Europe, and certainly the one most young and young-at-heart Maltese people look forward to.
