The eighth edition of the Qala International Folk Festival, organised by the Qala Local Council and the Qala Menhir Folk Group, is taking place between Friday, the 20th and Sunday, the 22nd of September 2012.
The picturesque village of Qala, is transformed by this annual festival into a hub of meticulously organised Folk activities that give an insight into the way our ancestors thought and lived in these islands and in other countries.
The festival always attracts large crowds of visitors, not only locals, but Maltese, foreign residents and tourists, who will be able to live a few days in the past, savouring the unique atmosphere which is vividly created by the detailed re-enactment in dazzling costumes, of a traditional Maltese Wedding.
Other entertainment includes performances of foreign folk groups together with the Qala Menhir Folk Group.
The full programme of the festival is to be published in the coming days.
