This Sunday, 2 April, all roads in Malta and Gozo lead to the little village of Mgarr for the eleventh consecutive Festa Frawli – Strawberries Festival. Similar to last year, the peak visiting time will be between 10.ooam and 5.00pm. However, large crowds flock the main square and streets of this village much earlier than 10 in the morning.
In a nutshell, one can say that this Spring festival offers something for everyone. It does focus on the younger ones – the children with various eco-activities and organised games. If you are visiting the Festa Frawli on Sunday, you will find an incredible choice of all sorts of food with one common ingredient – the bright red local strawberries.
How to reach the Festa Frawli by public transport:
The green and white buses no. 44, 238 and 101 leave Valletta to the Strawberries festival in Mgarr throughout the entire day.
A word of thanks and gratitude goes to the Mgarr Local Council, all the personnel involved in the Festa Frawli organisation and the farmers – for their incessant dedication and commitment throughout the whole process of strawberry growing.
