The 9th edition of the Manikata Pumpkin Fest will take place on Sunday 29th October between 10.00hrs and 17.00hrs.
This event is free of charge. One will be able to enjoy country and western music as well as live stage performances with singing, acting and dancing . Besides, vintage agricultural equipment will be on display for the public to view.
Taking place on the eve of Halloween, children attending the Feast are encouraged to wear their Halloween costumes and to participate in the treasure hunt.
There will also be a range of other activities for children to enjoy such as face painting, sand painting and a bouncy castle.
Manikata is unarguably Malta’s most remote village. It overlooks Golden Bay and is famous for its picturesque views and fresh air. We recommend combining a visit to the Pumpkin Fest with a morning walk along the dramatic coastline of the Majjistral National Park and its beautiful views of the massive, world-famous Ta’ Cenc cliffs of Gozo.
Once you’ve worked up an appetite, re-fuel on mouth-watering dishes all made from pumpkin. Typical savoury pumpkin pies, pasta and rice dishes, and a number of sweets and cakes will be on sale.
Visitors will be able to purchase pumpkins of various sizes as well as a range of other local produce from the festival.
