Although temperatures drop significantly to range between 11 and 23 degrees, November is still mild enough (and, compared with northern Europe, also dry) for a relaxing, quiet holiday in Marrakech with an average of seven hours daily sunshine. Furthermore, several sporting events and major international conferences are taking place in Marrakech.
There are no major Islamic religious festivals this month but Morocco celebrates two important public holidays, namely:
Green March Day: November 6th is Green March Day commemorating the date in 1975 when some 350,000 unarmed Moroccans converged on the southern city of Tarfaya to protest against the occupation of the Western Sahara by Spain.
Independence Day: Morocco’s ‘Fete de l’Independence’, Eid Al Istiqulal, is celebrated on the 18th of November to mark the return from exile of King Mohammed and the declaration of independence from France in 1956.
