Each year, the Valletta Green Festival transforms one of the largest open urban spaces in Valletta, Pjazza San Ġorġ, with its colourful signature feature – a huge floral carpet composed of some 150,000 potted plants. A yearly programme of family-friendly activities happening in the capital city and other localities have established this much loved festival as a fun and accessible platform for initiatives promoting environmental consciousness on the Maltese Islands.

Happening between the 3rd and the 6th of May 2018, the festival also offers visitors rare glimpses into some of the capital city’s little-known historical treasures, including the four-hundred-year-old gardens of the Archbishop’s Palace and the Convent of St Catherine.

This year, the square will be transformed into an actual garden, where the public can walk through St George’s Square amongst the flowers.
