Carnival 2023 returns with a resounding success.


The 2023 Carnival edition was very well received by the Maltese, Gozitans, and tourists alike who eagerly attended the carnival activities in Valletta. Festivals Malta, the agency responsible for organising carnival in Malta, managed to exceed all expectations in terms of the production of the festival, as well as through the high level of artistic creations exhibited.


This year carnival saw a substantial increase in attendance when compared to previous editions, as thousands of people flocked to Valletta to enjoy the lively events. This year, Festivals Malta, presented a more comprehensive programme of events, which included more activities than usual. Tonight, carnival culminates along St Anne Street in Floriana, with the gran defilé featuring the participation of all floats.


The Minister for National Heritage, the Arts and Local Government, Dr Owen Bonnici, said that he is proud to see people enthusiastically attending the carnival activities in Valletta. "It is an honour to see people of all ages enjoy these jubilant events which form such an important part of Maltese culture. I would like to thank the participants and all those who, in one way or another, contributed to this year’s carnival. I would also like to thank the Festivals Malta team for all their work towards a festival of this scale."


The Festivals Malta Chairman Aaron Zahra said, "Once again Festivals Malta has managed to exceed all expectations with yet another successful festival. We promised that, after two years of abridged editions, we will give the people the biggest carnival that has ever been organised, and I believe that we managed to do exactly this, as shown through the positive response we have received and the numerous attendance in all the carnival activities. I am very satisfied to see that Festivals Malta’s investment towards Carnival is contributing to the continuous development and quality of this festival. We will continue investing in this festival for the years to come and I look forward to seeing Malta Carnival grow and reach new heights in terms of organisation, sustainability, and security. We will now get back to work on the preparations for next year's edition, as well as on this year's summer carnival. It is crucial that what has been achieved improved upon through new and exciting initiatives."


Festivals Malta CEO, Annabelle Stivala, said that carnival is an important festival in the agency's portfolio, not only for its historical and cultural heritage, but also because it celebrates local talent. "I am happy with the success that carnival manages to achieve year after year. This carnival was truly a grand one, an achievement that fills me with pride as this was the result of years of hard work. I thank everyone who strived to ensure that this festival reaches new heights. Festivals Malta will continue working so that the agency’s cultural activities, keep developing and improving while remaining relevant and true to the times."


Carnival Artistic Director, Jason Busuttil, said that this year carnival saw a big leap in quality, and he thanked the participants from the bottom of his heart for their dedication and artistic work. "The participants are the beating heart of carnival, and much of the success achieved is thanks to them because every year they invest a lot of passion and artistry towards this festival. This year we have clearly seen how important carnival is to the people, and I thank everyone for attending with enthusiasm to revel in these festivities."


Festivals Malta announced that after the success of this carnival edition, the Summer Carnival will also make a grand return between the 18th and 20th of August 2023. More details on Summer Carnival will be announced later. The Malta Carnival is organised by Festivals Malta with the support of the Ministry for National Heritage, Arts and Local Government.
