Event Details



Spring is in the air and the strawberry season is here! What better way to celebrate this time than to attend the annual strawberry festival in Malta, better known by the locals as 'Festa Frawli'? 

The festival, now in its 12th year, is very popular among the Maltese and takes place in the main square outside the Parish Church in Mġarr, an agricultural village on the north side of the island.  Mġarr is renowned for its excellent quality strawberries, which boast a unique sweet taste. As the festival approaches the Mġarr locals eagerly prepare for the much-awaited event. Thousands of strawberries are picked, prepared and packed. Children rehearse for performances to be staged on the church square, and attractive stalls are set up to welcome Maltese visitors and foreigners alike. 

Public Transport

Malta Public Transport will be operating a special bus service for Festa Frawli. Bus X44 will depart from the Valletta Terminus to Mġarr every 30 minutes between 10:00 and 15:00, and back from Mġarr to Valletta Terminus every 30 minutes between 15:00 and 18:00. The special route will run in addition to the usual service and passengers may also catch bus 44 from Valletta to Golden Bay via Mġarr every 30 minutes; bus 238 between Mġarr and Mater Dei every hour; or bus 101 between Mġarr and Ċirkewwa every hour.
