With temperatures between 17 C (night time lows) and 31 (daily highs) and very little rain, Marrakech gets rather hot in June. While keeping out of the searing midday sun is recommended (there are some wonderful historic sites, museums and verdant gardens to keep cool in), June sees a series of festivals and events.
Ramadan, 06/06/2016 – 05/07/2016
The 6th of June marks the beginning of Ramadan, the month of fasting concluding with the Eid el-Fitr feast day on the 5th of July. While business continues pretty much ‘as usual’ in the squares and souks of Marrakech, and restaurants, gardens, museums and palaces remain open, it is wise to remember that you are visiting a Muslim country at a particularly holy time in the Islamic calendar and that there are certain rules one should observe out of courtesy for local residents.
Fes Sacred Musical Festival, 13/06/2016 – 21/06/2016
One of Morocco’s most important cultural events, the Sacred Music Festival in Fes celebrates and promotes the relationship between spirituality and the arts, although the spectrum of performances is actually much wider than that. Local as well as celebrated international artists representing many different cultures from around the world, are on display with outstanding performances of music and dance.
