The picturesque parish square in the agricultural village of Imgarr, surrounded by lush green valleys will once again host 'Festa Frawli' - the annual Strawberry Fair - Sunday 28th April. Now in its 13th edition, this event is now a much awaited fixture in the Maltese calendar.
A constant supply of freshly picked strawberries will be on sale throughout the day, ferried regularly to the square by the farmers themselves. A wide variety of desserts, snacks and beverages will be available in our open air kitchen, all made with fresh Imgarr strawberries. Professional chefs will also be preparing novelty strawberry based gourmet dishes such as ravioli and a non-alcoholic cocktail bar. Home made strawberry wine, jams, conserves and other typical products will also be on sale. Souvenirs, artworks and crafts will be exhibited by the craftsmen themselves. A second open air kitchen will be offering typical Maltese dishes.
Folk and Ethnic music performed by leading Maltese artists using traditional instruments, and folk dance troupes from all around Malta and Gozo will provide fitting entertainment for this unique celebration of Maltese agricultural heritage. Special activities will also take place throughout the day; among which is a strawberry cupcake competition and a painting competition open to all.
By special concession of Heritage Malta, Ta’ Hagrat and Skorba Temples will be open in the morning at the discounted price of €3.
Train rides, horse riding (manned by experienced personnel) and a myriad of fun games, organized by a dedicated team of animators will keep the little ones busy! A free 'Park and Ride' and shuttle service will be provided from Ta’ Qali. A day not to be missed for all the family!
This event is organised by the Imgarr Local Council and 'Kummissjoni Lejla Mgarrija' with the help of hundreds of volounteers.
