STRAWBERRY FAIR Food and Drink , Festivals , Family Entertainment


The picturesque parish square in the agricultural village of Mgarr, surrounded by lush green valleys will once again host ‘Festa Frawli’ – the annual Strawberry Fair – which is held every second or third Sunday of April. Now in its 6th edition, this event is now a much awaited fixture in the Maltese calendar.

A constant supply of freshly picked strawberries will be on sale throughout the day, ferried regularly to the square by the farmers themselves. A wide variety of desserts, snacks and beverages will be available in our open air kitchen, all made with fresh Mgarr strawberries. Professional chefs will also be preparing novelty strawberry based gourmet dishes such as soup and ravioli. Home made strawberry wine, jams, conserves and other typical products will also be on sale.  Souvenirs, artworks and crafts will be exhibited by the craftsmen themselves. A second open air kitchen will be offering typical Maltese dishes (roasts, pasta, salads etc) as well as snacks including ‘bigilla’, ‘ftajjar’, snails and much more.

Folk and Ethnic music performed by leading Maltese artists using traditional instruments, and  folk dance troupes from all around Malta and Gozo will provide fitting entertainment for this unique celebration of Maltese agricultural heritage. Special activities will also take place throughout the day; among which is the unveiling of a record breaking (Malta’s largest ever) strawberry gateau and a strawberry cupcake competition open to all (entry form on the website).

The nearby children playground, horse rides (manned by experienced personnel) and a myriad of fun games organized by a dedicated team of animators will keep the little ones busy! A free ‘Park and Ride’ and shuttle service will be provided from Ta’ Qali. A day not to be missed for all the family!
