This is a Gozo Experience You Will Never Forget.
Carnival in Gozo is part of a long-time tradition in Malta. It’s a Gozo event like no other, when the streets become alive with colour and fun experiences are to be had for all the family.
Carnival festivities are reminiscent of Maltese folklore and has been celebrated since the arrival of the Knights of St. John in 1530. It began in Valletta and soon spread across the Maltese islands and now, it’s one of the most colourful events on the Maltese calendar.
If you want to know where to go to experience Carnival in Gozo, head to Independent Square in Victoria, and Nadur Square where you will no doubt come across teams of people disguised under colourful costumes and you will experience magical floats of crazy characters adorning the streets. It’s a chance to see the true character and humour of Gozitans come alive.
Carnival has obviously been put on hold over the last two years and this year we are still awaiting news of whether there are events and activities planned. Check back to our events page for more information but in the meantime, we’ve put together a short montage of Carnivals gone by for you to enjoy using the most popular videos on YouTube.
