Another surprising fact: Malta knows how to celebrate the smallest of events in the most unique ways. Its major recurring daily and monthly events loved by locals include the In Guardia Parade at Fort St. Elmo, the Changing of the Guards from Republic street into St. George’s (Palace) Square, and the Saluting Battery in the Upper Barrakka Gardens. The Village Festas is also colorfully celebrated all over Malta and Gozo throughout summer. Notable ones are held on a specific month every year.

In April, stay back for the Malta International Music Festival and the International Fireworks Festivals. To revel in re-enactments with the historical setting of the Silent City, join the Medieval Mdina event in May.
