|Email item||Print item||
This Sunday there is a feast with a difference in Qala – l-Festa Ghawdxija – It is a festival of art, culture and traditions of Gozo’s local feasts and will see the participation of various committees from all over the island.
It will be the first time for such an event, which is being organised by Ghaqda Briju San Guzepp – Qala, in collaboration with the Ministry for Gozo, and is taking place in the main square of Qala, this coming Sunday, the 1st of July.
The festival will bring together various groups from different villages across the island, to collectively celebrate Gozitan feasts from the different cultural aspects.
The organisers are inviting everyone who cares about traditional festivals and culture to attend this manifestation of art, culture and tradition of a typical Gozitan feast.
In this event all elements of a usual feast will be showcased by the different groups; band marches, fireworks, street decorations, traditional food and much more.
The festival has also been organised so as not to interfere with any other village feast, as Sunday, the 1st of July is a weekend free of feasts in Gozo.
This Gozo Feast with a difference will take place between 9:00am and 1:00pm. For the full programme in English please see here.
