The IN GUARDIA PARADE is a re-enactment that portrays an authentic event that took place regularly inside important military fortifications in Malta and Gozo .

The re-enactment portrays the inspection of the St. John’s Cavalier in the town of Vittoriosa and its garrison by the Grand Bailiff of the Order of the Knights of St. John in charge of military affairs.  During the re-enactment, the soldiers and knights of the fort’s garrison - some 55 re-enactors - are kitted-out in their finest uniforms and perform a military drill demonstrating to the Grand Bailiff the garrison’s state of readiness in the event of a military threat. 

The show starts at 11.00 hrs. – lasts 45 minutes and will be held at St. John's Cavalier (close to Couvre Porte), in Birgu (Vittoriosa). 

Admission:

Tickets at the gate: 
Adults : €7
Children (6 – 12 years) and Students:  €3

One may be able to visit part of the fort only prior to the re-enactment.  Therefore it is advisable to enter the fort well before the show starts.
