The Light Festival is an annual event organised by the Ghaqda Kulturali ta’ Klula. This year’s event will be held on the 3rd weekend of December in Santa Luċija, Gozo.

The Festival of Light is inspired by Nordic countries’ festivities involving light. In Gozo, this is celebrated around St. Lucia’s religious festivities in December.

The event consists of a procession in the main square of Santa Luċija, involving children carrying different lights and candles and wearing traditional costumes associated with this event. They will be accompanied by a local band so as also to entertain all those present. Prior to the activity, all attendees will be handed out traditional cakes, similar to the Nordic countries’ traditions.

This event is also part of the Christmas in Gozo programme of events.
