What is the Valletta Green Festival?

This colourful and eco-friendly event has become a beloved highlight on Malta‘s calendar. Over the course of the event,  Pjazza San Ġorġ is transformed into a fantasy garden, with over 18,000 potted plants and trees, inviting visitors to wander, explore, and bask in the greenery.

It’s also the perfect spring celebration, adding a splash of greenery to Valletta as Malta enjoys warmer weather and clear blue skies. Aside from the enjoyment factor, the festival also raises awareness of efforts in nurturing a greener Earth, providing inspiration and opportunities to learn how each of us can play a part in preserving our planet’s green spaces.
