With temperatures pleasantly warm at 27° / 28°, Marrakech provides the perfect atmosphere for exploring and sampling the ambience of this captivating city.
To underline this, a number of sporting and cultural events in Marrakech take place in October, of which these are just a few:
Marrakech Art Fair – we mentioned this in our ‘Marrakech events in September’ piece but repeat it now because the fair runs through to 3rd October. The Marrakech Art Fair exhibits contemporary collections from Europe and the Arab world.
To give you an idea of its importance, last year’s Art Fair contained works by Karel Appel, Arman, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Eduardo Chillida, Robert Doisneau and Andy Warhol.
As a nice touch, a golf competition between the art world’s major players concludes the event. You can find out more at the Marrakech Art Fair website.
Morocco International Rally – now this looks like fun! Starting and finishing in Marrakech, the Morocco International Rally covers 2800km over seven days of intense competition.
Eligibility is straightforward: a valid international rally driver’s license is required and a vehicle built before 1975 (you can actually hire one for the race). Find out more – or even enter! – here.
MaRue’Kech – although the streets of Marrakech are never dull, the city is likely to step up a gear with MaRue’Kech, a theatre and street art festival featuring locations such as the Theatre Royal and Theatre DarTaqafa as well as the streets themselves where many performances will be given. Every year, hundreds of candidates showcase new ways to engage with the public.
Art Fairs, rallying and street art…it could only be Marrakech. For some unwinding time, Les Borjs de la Kasbah’s spa, L’Arganier could be just the tonic.
