Homepage > Events > Carnival Festivities




Carnival is celebrated in numerous towns and villages but especially in Valletta, Floriana and Nadur Gozo. It is indeed an explosion of colour in the way of decorated floats and costumes.

Carnival serves as a means of merriment and a time when individuals dress up in different costumes and enjoy the fun.

The Malta Council for Culture and the Arts organise the official Carnival festivities that take place in Valletta from Friday until the following Tuesday.

Some of the events are held inside an enclosure and may be attended against a nominal fee.

On the last day, a big Carnival defile ends in the main street of Floriana with a fireworks display.
