Festa de Borg 2014 – Day 2 (Sunday 7th)

Event Details

The Sunday of the Festa de Borg, the closing night, is always magical and this year should be no different, with a wide range of events planned.


The nature of the Festa means that there are lots of small events happening around Borgo San Giuliano, as well as the main events listed here, so you should plan for a stroll around the Borgo’s streets to get the full event.

Also be aware that the Festa de Borg is a local initiative, that is free but that takes lots of planning, and money. To help support this wonderful festival, you can buy a lottery ticket from the Societ&aacute de Borg stands that you’ll see in Viale Tiberio.
