Siggiewi St Nicholas Festa Committee

Siggiewi, Malta

City Feast Day

St. Nicholas is the patron saint of Siggiewi and patronal festivals are spectacular civic events in Malta. Buildings are festooned with lights, bright banners hang over the streets and on building fronts. Fireworks make a grand finale. The Siggiewi St. Nicholas Festa is the last weekend in June.
