Date Festival

Edit This
Sugary dates play an important role in the Moroccan culture, and the annual Date Feast in Erfoud demonstrates exactly how highly they are regarded. Their sweetness makes them an ideal token of good luck, which is why they are a traditional gift at important ceremonies and an offering to friends or strangers. Erfoud is the centre of the date-producing area boasting more than one million date palms and is therefore the centre of festivities after the October harvest. Traditional processions, music, and folk dance form the bulk of the events, with plenty of opportunity to sample traditional Moroccan cuisine, including salads and tagine (a rich stew) local-style, namely with an ample scattering of fresh dates.
