|Email item||Print item||
For the third consecutive year, the Ghaqda Muzikali San Girgor of Kercem will be organising Festubru, a festival addressed to all the family. This year it will be held between Friday, the 7th, and Sunday, the 9th of October. The event will be held at the most picturesque valley in the Maltese Islands, Lunzjata Valley, just on the borders of Victoria and Kercem.
The Organising Committee will once again present a full programme of activities and attractions directly linked with tradition.
This three-day activity will also include various attractions and exhibitions featuring farming tools and animals used by our forefathers. An interesting attraction for everyone will be the production of Gozitan cheeslets and wool weaving. Local fresh products and preservatives will be available to purchase at the festival. The fascinating Lunzjata Chapel will be open throughout the three days where mass will be celebrated.
This festival is being organised in collaboration with the Ministry for Gozo in line with Eco-Gozo vision and the Parliamentary Secretary for Consumers, Fair Competition, Local Councils and Public Dialogue as well as the Ta’ Kercem Local Council.
The general public will have the opportunity to appreciate Gozo in its natural state. It is notable that the Ghaqda Muzikali San Girgor will be addressing an educational campaign especially towards young children to promote the natural, historic and cultural heritage of Gozo.
