October in Malta is a time of change, regarding the weather of course. With autumn in its first few weeks, you will notice that the temperature will drop to the mid 20’s and there might be a little more rain. Don’t be fooled, however, the sea temperature will still be warm so there will be plenty of opportunities for water sports and days out at the beach. Here’s our pick of the best events in Malta this October.
This weekend Valletta will come alive on Notte Bianca (White Night), it will be a memorable night with something for everyone.

This event taking place in Birgu (also known as Vittoriosa), which is one of Malta’s oldest and most historic cities, has now become an annual national event.
Birgu fest, which was once known as Birgu by night, has grown in popularity over the past years. Mainly because of the immense beauty that is interpreted throughout this fortified small city. This historical city is completely lit by thousands of candles sprinkled on every step and every balcony. You’ll be able to find a wide variety of food stalls, restaurants, and bands to liven up the night.
Halloween in Malta has become a time to look forward to. With the weather still holding up nicely, it gives the opportunity to really be creative and daring with your Halloween costumes. On this night theme parties are organised and of course, the traditional trick or treat is done by younger ones.
Clubs and bars go all-out to decorate their premises to attract as many one-eyed zombies and killer clowns as possible. It’s a good night out and definitely something you should not miss out on.
