BIRGU FEST 2016
The historic, architectural and cultural beauty of the city of Vittoriosa, colloquially known as Birgu, has long been celebrated during the much anticipated annual event of Birgu Fest.
From the event’s inception, the aim has always been to highlight this ancient city’s assets and importance in the island’s historical tapestry, with re-enactments, extended museum hours and cheaper entrance rates, and church tours. Food stalls showcasing a variety of flavours will also be on offer to the public, alongside various musical concerts with classical and contemporary performances.
Birgu by Candlelight has also been incorporated into Birgu Fest, where the streets of the city are lit up by a gentle glow of thousands of candles of every shape and form.
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.
