The Marsovin Summer Wine Festival
Running from the 15th to 17th July, this wine festival is in its 9th year. Over the years it has become a symbol of the summer months in Malta. The festival is held in the picturesque Hastings Gardens in Valletta and offers some fantastic views of Sliema Harbour as well as over 30 local wines for you to try. Why not check out some of the bands that will be playing there too? Throughout the 3 days, 8 local acts such as Airport Impressions and The Voyage will be performing different genres of music at the festival. There will also be a plethora of food vendors at the festival for you to indulge in.

The Delicata Classic Wine Festival (Malta)
This festival, now in its 15th year, will be running from 4th – 7th August. Held in the evening, from 7pm onwards, when the temperature starts to cool down to a very comfortable temperature, it offers a very relaxed atmosphere. Held at the Upper Barrakka Gardens in Valletta, this event combines elements of sophistication from both the beautiful location and the 20 plus types of local wines on offer. Local bands, such as Red Electrick and Planet Seed, will also be playing throughout the festival to offer some light entertainment. No festival would be complete without food, which can be found here in excess; everything from local Maltese cuisine to seafood to international dishes.
