During summer, every Maltese village organises its own Feast  - a collection of colour, tradition and craftsmanship. This month, the Artisan Village at Ta’ Qali will also be hosting its own ‘festa’, showcasing the labours of love of many Malta based artisans.  Join in by visiting the village and becoming part of a celebration of Maltese food, Maltese music and, of course, authentic Maltese hand-made artisanal products. Traditional decorations will line some of the streets and traditional games will be organised for children, and also for adults. The first edition of ‘Festa Lwien’ (A Feast of Colour) aims to become an annual event on Malta’s August calendar. Local popular comedian duo - DANUSAN - are at the centre of this event, and they look forward to provide friends and families with a fun atmosphere, immersed in Maltese Culture. Entrance is free.
