Valletta Green Festival 2020
Each year, the Valletta Green Festival transforms one of the largest open urban spaces in Valletta, Pjazza San Ġorġ, with its colourful signature feature – a huge floral carpet composed of some 150,000 potted plants. A yearly programme of family-friendly activities happening in the capital city and other localities have established this much-loved weekend-long festival as a fun and accessible platform for initiatives promoting environmental consciousness on the Maltese Islands.
Lisa Marie Kähler, the designer of this year’s infiorata designed for VCA (producer) a variety of elements which represent our environment, including local flora and fauna with the main design element being a large bee. This design aspires to encourage people to become aware of issues which threaten biodiversity, and to act to maintain a healthy ecosystem. Here you can see the drawn design in one of the sketches and next to it the realistic implementation.
As Malta continues to battle the Covid-19 pandemic, there will be available a live-streaming for the popular Valletta Green Festival between the 7th and the 10th of May, giving you the opportunity to enjoy the annual Spring-time event safely from the comfort of your own home.
The main infiorata installation in St George’s Square, synonymous with the Valletta Green Festival, can be seen from your living room thanks to a webcam placed on top of the Grandmaster’s Palace providing a bird’s eye view of the square.
Tune in online at any time between the 7th and 10th of May to experience it!
