Mild, sunny and with a host of exciting events, March is the perfect time to visit the Ochre City. Here we take a brief look at weather prospects and some of the top Marrakech events during March 2019.

March Weather

Visitors to Marrakech can expect average daily temperatures of between 17° and 23° with night-time lows of around 11°. There will be plenty of sun, too, with an expected 8 hours per day - and there is likely to be little precipitation (it rains, typically, on just 5 days per month).

The Best Marrakech Events in March 2019

The month’s top events kick off on 1st March with the 14th edition of the festival ‘En Marche’. Featuring a host of international participants, this “Festival of Contemporary Dance” showcases a variety of performances and screenings as well as discussions about choreography in a number of cultural and public spaces across the city.

For those more interested in competitive sporting events, the 15th and 16th of March sees the start of the ‘Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles’ and the ‘Rally Morocco Classic’, respectively.

Between the 15th and 30th March, the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles - the only rally organised, exclusively, for female participants – has been bringing women aged 18 to 65 together for this outstanding motorsport event in the Moroccan desert since 1990.

Another such event, organised since 1993, is the Rallye Morocco Classic giving classic car enthusiasts the chance to spend a week living their automotive passion whilst discovering the landscapes of Morocco in a totally unique, exciting fashion. Taking place over 7 sections, each of 300 km, the rally sets off from Casablanca on the 16th and makes its way to Marrakech arriving on the 22nd - just in time for this year’s Grand Prix. 

If folklore is more your thing, you should try to catch the 2nd edition of Marrakech’s international folklore festival, “Marrakech Folklore Days”. Held between the 28th and 31st March, this event stages performances by local, national and international amateur folklore ensembles and marching bands including participants in historic military costumes with majorettes, flag wavers and more.   

Open-air performances take place on stages at some of the city’s most renowned sites, including the Jemaa el Fna, the Souk Haddadine Square, the El Badi Palace and the Place du 16 Novembre (in Guéliz), the event culminating in a parade across the city.
