Upcoming Festivals and Fairs

September is a time of change, the weather is changing, days are getting shorter, children are getting ready to go back to school and all in all we feel there are winds of change which hopefully will take us towards a happier time of the year when temperatures are cooler and we more or less get into our 'routine' after the hectic summer months. For some of us this feels like a blessing while for others it means there is 'more to do' since the lazier days are coming to an end.
I have started a new line of products which are mostly beaded articles including among others an exclusive range of 'One of a kind' jewellery accessories. This is a new venture for me and I am very pleased with the results. I hope you will come see for yourselves.

Another change is the local Fairs and Festivals scene on our island. With the season change there are more festivities to entertain us throughout the month. Check out the dates and venues below for festivals to attend during our island's warm weekends.

‘Iljieli Skalin’
Venue: St Anne Gardens - Marsaskala
Dates: 3rd, 4th and 5th September 2010

Qormi Wine Festival
Venue: Close to San Gorg Church
Dates: 3rd and 4th September

9th Edition of “The Qormi Bread Festival
Venue: Close to San Bastjan Church
Dates: 9th, 10th and 11th September 2010

Notte Bianca - Lejl Imdawwal
Valletta 25th September 2010 All Night
Visit our Capital city of Valletta by night and enjoy the multitude of cultural and other activities offered on this occasion.

With the weather changing and rain in the forecast, I'm keeping my fingers crossed conditions will be favourable ~ Hope to see you there!

Note: I'm sure you must have noticed that the first two Festivals are on the same dates. Since I have not yet figured out how to be in two places at the same time, I have chosen the Iljieli Skalin in Marsascala but then I hope to be in Qormi the following week for the Bread Festival.


  1. Thanks for the update Doreen. We hope to make it to Notte Bianca this year. We'll see. The sheer amount of traffic always makes me cringe and chicken out!

  2. I don't blame you Loree. I remember the First Notte Bianca it took us almost two hours to get home! But since then similar events are being organized on a regular basis so it should not be that bad, well hopefully not!
    I do hope you'll make it : )

  3. Wow sis you're going to keep busy!
    I hope to be part of this on the Notte Bianca, can't wait to HUG you again sis!
