Posted on: September 30, 2014 Special Events The Bread Festival 2014 17 October 2014 The Bread Festival, which this year will be in its 13th edition, is being given a new dimension, being held around St Paul’s Square in Main Street some metres away from the Qormi Police Station and in collaboration with the *Qormi Local Council and Maypole Bakery. A huge form of the Maltese Cross made of various types of traditional Maltese bread will be sold whilst a competition for the best Biskuttini tar-Raħal will also be held this year. All proceeds from this activity will be donated to the Community Chest Fund. *Qormi is the third largest locality in Malta, with approximately 16,500 residents out of a total population of about 500,000 living on the Maltese islands. The town’s reputation as the centre of bread-making in Malta can be traced back to the times of the Knights of St John. The Knights used to buy their bread from the many bakeries in the area, and named the locality ‘Casal Fornaro’ (the bakers’ village), a title it still bears proudly today.

Mythology has it that the charm of this island aided the most beautiful nymph Calypso to halt Ulysses on his journeys and hair-raising quests, to lull him, lure him away from his travels for seven mystical years. The festival uncovers the island in all its aspects, without eliminating the thrills of exploration and discovery. Festival Mediterranea offers all that Gozo boasts of in the cultural and artistic arena. Opera. Classical and symphonic music...
