Welcome to our guide of what’s on in March 2024 around Malta and Gozo, ideal if you are staying with us at Hotel Juliani in St Julian’s throughout this month. 

Easter celebrations are going to be earlier than usual this year, with Easter Sunday coming up on the very last day of March. This means that the month is going to be full of fun and interesting cultural events you can immerse yourself in from almost any corner of the Maltese islands.

Inspired by the globally renowned annual Biennale in Venice, Malta will be hosting its own first edition from 13th March until 31st May. Artistic events shall be held across Malta and Gozo, marrying contemporary art with local heritage. The main themes are going to be the Mediterranean Sea, Malta’s colonised history and the islands’ rich archives. Events will include theatrical performances, film screenings, interactive workshops and plenty of family-friendly activities. You can find out more information here.


If you are looking to experience a unique and enchanting theatrical show while you are in Malta this month, consider booking a ticket to see Cinderella on Ice. The dazzling ice skating show will be held at the Mediterranean Conference Centre in Valletta from the 21st to the 24th of March. Click here for more details. 


Italian music lovers will be flocking to the Gigi D’Alessio concert on the evening of Saturday 23rd March. Hosted at the Malta Fairs & Conventions Centre in Ta’ Qali, the singer behind some of Italy’s biggest hits from the 90s and early 2000s will be performing alongside Malta’s very own versatile orchestra, under the direction of Maestro Paul Borg. You can book your tickets here.  


Being quite a religious country with hundreds of churches, Malta prides itself in organising elaborate Good Friday processions which can serve as quite a unique experience for any tourist. On the late afternoon of Friday 29th March, numerous localities including Valletta, Mosta, Rabat and many others will hold a sombre yet striking parade complete with live

music, the carrying of divine statues and even locals in traditional costumes participating in reenactments. For more information, we suggest going over this informative article by the Malta Uncovered website.

The last day of March will be characterised by unique Maltese celebrations to mark Easter Sunday. Essentially a more vibrant and joyful version of the Good Friday processions, many towns such as Isla, Qormi and even St Julian’s will hold an Easter Sunday procession in the morning. Typically, it would involve upbeat band music, enjoying the delicious treats known as ‘figolli’, as well as the traditional run with the statue of the Risen Christ at the peak of the procession. We recommend that you read this article by the Malta Info Guide website for more details.
