Science in the City Festival is one of the biggest festivals taking place in the breathtaking, historical capital city of Malta, Valletta! Our mission is to promote science to everyone, despite the background or age. This year, Science in the City will engage the public, and work its magic in Valletta, for the tenth time in a row!
The real-life street festival will be held from Friday, 30th September 2022 at Fort St. Elmo, and performances will be held at St. Dominic Theatre on both Friday, September 30th and Saturday, 1st October! The virtual festival will take place on October 7th, 2022.
- Street festival: 6 pm to 11 pm on Friday
- Performance festival: 5 pm to 11 pm on Friday AND 10 am to midnight on Saturday
- Virtual festival: 7 pm to 11 pm
- Street festival: Fort St Elmo

Satellite events: Spazju Kreattiv
We also have satellite events, which are on both Friday and Saturday of the festival but at Spazju Kreattiv.
For our performances, workshops, virtual festival and special events ‘It Happened Here!’, booking is required. We also do encourage you to book for all activities as we use Eventbrite to send you our surveys which help us improve on our festival and gauge our results. Did we mention that everyone who fills in the survey may win 50 euro cash prize?
Yes! All activities are FREE of charge. This is thanks to the funding we win through the EU’s Horizon Programme and the sponsors who are kind enough to support our event.
Please do! We always need an additional pair of volunteers’ hands! It’s a great opportunity to gain new skills and meet new people!
We are eternally grateful to all the interns for all the work and time they dedicate to planning the festival. We couldn’t do it without them. If you want to join a passionate, internationally diverse team, check our website frequently to see when the applications open!

Not at all! Our activities are suitable for everyone! Check out our event page where you can find an age category for every performance, stand and event!
