Moroccan festivities

  • March 3rd is one of the country's most important civil holidays and is celebrated throughout Morocco: Throne Day.  Considered the national holiday, Moroccans dress their best for dancing and singing under colorful fireworks.
  • Celebrated on a variable religious calendar, Eid al-Adha, or the Festival of the Sacrifice, is a main festivity among Muslims. Commemorating Abraham's sacrifice, families unite to enjoy a sacrificed lamb.
  • The month of May is devoted to the Mousseum of Sidi Mohammed M'a al-Anim, which honors the taureg peoples, known for their bright blue garb, tribes, and trading.
  • The Marrakesh Folklore Festival takes place at the beginning of June. This ten-day festival draws a huge crowd of tourists to enjoy its dancers, musicians, and singers from all over Morocco. The entertainment lasts from day to nightfall.
  • Two lesser known, although still quite popular, events that exemplify Moroccan life are the Imilchil Marriage Festival and the Erfoud Date Festival. The former, held in mid-September, is a live music and vocal celebration where Berbers take part in an unforgettable ritual. The end of October hosts the latter festival on the dunes of Merzuga, one of the country's most spectacular regions, which pays homage to Morocco's star fruit, including traditional camel competitions.
