Bread Festival in Casal Fornaro

Her Excellency the President of Malta will inaugurate the 13th edition of The Bread Festival. Visitors may expect to see a huge form of the Maltese Cross made of various types of traditional Maltese bread, whilst a competition for the best Biskuttini tar-Raħal (traditional village biscuits) will also be held this year. All food stands will be somewhat pertinent to the Maltese loaf.

Visiting the village of Qormi on the 18th of October will give you ample time to roam the old streets of Città Pinto – the village renowned for its bread-making. The busy life of Qormi or Casal Fornaro as this village was known during the reign of the knights will stop for a few hours and the Qriema as the Qormi people are known in Maltese and those visiting us, will live again for some short hours the life of our ancestors.

Folkloristic ambiance, traditional decorations and adornments, will take us back in time. The numerous attractions along the streets will include various exhibitions, different stages which offer live drama, Maltese traditional songs including Għana, festa marches from a number of musicians from various bandclubs around Malta. Shows by established singers and top local talents will surely make the visitors’ evening a memorable one.

All proceeds from this activity will be donated to the Community Chest Fund. The Qormi Bread Festival will be held on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th October 2014.
