The Malta Tourism Authority has launched the 2017 calendar of events, compiling the main events taking place in Malta and Gozo for the coming year in an 88-page publication.

The calendar lists all events which may be of interest, including musical events, sports, folklore, re-enactments and others.

According to the MTA, the main events for each month, such as the Valletta International Baroque Festival in January, the International Fireworks Festival in April, Isle of MTV Malta Special in June, and the Notte Bianca in October, are highlighted with greater prominence. The calendar also includes a handy Index of Traditional Village Feasts and ends with a forward glimpse to 2018 when Valletta will be European Capital of Culture.

“The Malta Tourism Authority considers events to be a prime component of our tourism product, one which makes our destination more attractive. From the marketing perspective, our calendar of events provides us with a tool that helps showcase the variety of activities taking place in Malta and Gozo throughout the year,” MTA CEO Paul Bugeja said.

This year’s calendar of events is available in brochure format from any of the MTA's tourist information offices or by going online.
