Morocco is one of the top choices for holidaymakers heading to Africa when it comes to selecting tourist destinations. As Africa’s famous country, Morocco has a lot to offer for visitors reserving flights tickets for their vacations. It hosts various events and festivals throughout the year for travellers landing on flights during different seasons that offer an insight into the rich arts and culture scene of the country. Rabat, Fes, Marrakesh and Casablanca are Morocco’s rich centres for culture and history. The colourful events and festivals, and the natural beauty and warm hospitality of locals that are ubiquitous across its many places inevitably set visitors on a quest to net tickets for Morocco bound flights all year round.

Marathon des Sables
The Marathon des Sables or the Sand Marathon is held in the vast Sahara desert. It is a very long and the toughest foot race which covers a distance of 151 miles over 6 days. Despite the degree of difficulty, this ‘ultramarathon’ in the Moroccan desert attracts over 600 participants from some 30 nations every year. During the race event, the otherwise inhospitable Sahara Desert comes alive with multihued shades, sounds and sights of cheering audience and participants – a sight truly worth the effort to net those cheap air tickets on Moroccan flights. The 2014 MDS is going to take place in April.

Fes Festival of World Sacred Music
Fes, home to the ancient walled city, is a highly popular destination that tourists often include in their itineraries while booking air tickets aboard Morocco flights. Among the most popular events that the city hosts, Fes Festival of World Sacred Music is thronged by many ‘traditional’ music lovers. The event attempts to discover the various nuances of the ‘sufi’ music and rhythms and the sights of Iranian dervishes singing, chanting and whirling, religious mystics, and dancers from far and wide are common at the fest, complimented by scrumptious Moroccan cuisine. Its 20th edition is scheduled from 13th to 21st June 2014.

Marrakech Popular Arts Festival
The famed Marrakech Popular Arts Festival in July attracts a host of dancers, actors, singers and fortune tellers annually as well as hordes of tourists on short and long haul flights. The entertainers come from all over Asia and Europe to entertain the guests. The venue for the main events during this celebration is the Djemma el Fna and Badi Palace, which attracts huge crowds during these concerts and performances. The festival overall and ‘Fantasia’ in particular – a popular horse-riding spectacle, that showcases numerous charging horse-men in traditional attire, provide maximum value for the money spent on flights tickets to Morocco’s Marakech. July weather being hot, travellers can easily grab tickets for Morocco bound flights.

Imilchil Marriage Feast
Morocco’s deep rooted culture is among the strong reasons that compel holidaymakers to look for air tickets, holidays and flights packages even in the off peak season. Imilchil Marriage Feast is a Berber marriage festival held in late August or early September where around forty couples get married in a public forum. The venue in the Middle-High Atlas Mountains is called Imilchil and is located near Marrakech. Culture enthusiasts who book flights tickets to flock to Morocco’s Marrakech are often seen at the unique fest witnessing the splendid Berber music and dance, and customs and traditions.

Erfoud Date Festival
Erfoud, the ‘Gate of Sahara Desert’, is a popular and touristy town in South Morocco. It hosts the Date Festival every year in October/November following the harvesting of millions of date palms. The local ethnic groups come together to celebrate a 3 day extravaganza. A kind of tribute to the delicious date fruit, the fest features traditional music, dance and food hosted in Berber tents. Travellers who book tickets for flights to this African country should not miss the dromedary (a type of camel) race which is a speciality of this carnival.
