WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF FOOD
The Malta International Food Festival is a respected and well-known culinary event. It is the island's most anticipated gourmet event, featuring cuisine from all around the world.
Thousands of food and wine lovers attend Malta's biggest event of the year each year. Over 150,000 people have attended the festival in recent years. With over 48,000 visitors during the 2022 Malta edition, 2022 was the biggest edition yet. In 2022, another 15,000 people attended the Gozo edition over the period of 2 days.
In previous years the festival was hosted over a period of 5 days, yet due to a high demand, an extension of 2 days will be introduced in the 2023 edition.
The Malta 7-day festival goes beyond eating and drinking to reveal what the food scene in Malta is all about: embracing local and seasonal produce, promoting its diverse culture, championing premium producers, indulging in a kaleidoscope of tastes, and being treated to an amazing night out in Valletta's Pjazza Tritoni.
During the event, visitors are entertained with live performances by some of Malta's top talents, as well as a variety of additional children's activities.
The Gozo edition is a modest but equally thrilling festival that takes place a few weeks after the Malta edition, just beneath the imposing Xewkija Parish church. It's a free street food festival with an emphasis on diversity, with over 7 foreign cuisines accompanied by live performances and other entertainment.
Visitors purchase tokens from cash points, which they can then redeem for any cuisine they want, including drinks and a choice of high-quality wines.
The entrance for the Malta edition is €2, children enter for free. All patrons will be given free discount vouchers with a value of over €20 to be redeemed from different restaurants across Malta, further more children will be given a free entry ticket to the Malta National Aquarium.
