Marrakech is a Moroccan city full of culture and good food. The culture of Marrakech is very diverse; there is something new, different, and exciting to see everywhere you look. The atmosphere of the city is very inviting; when one walks the streets of the city, he or she can experience the excited bustle of the markets, hear the upbeat sound of local musicians playing on street corners, admire the beautiful architecture of the city, and smell the inviting scent of delicious Moroccan cuisine. The people of Marrakech are noted for their light-hearted attitudes and humorous personalities: evidence of this is “Marrakech du Rire,” the international humor festival held in the city. The festival has taken place for the past seven years, and this year’s festival will last from June 28 to July 2. These five days will be full of hilarious performances by some of the best comedians from this area as well as performances by an array of other comedians from around the world. The opportunity to watch a variety of movie screenings and take in many diverse aspects of rich Marrakech culture are several of the other exciting ventures those in attendance can take advantage of. This festival is one of the best times of the year to be out and about in the city.
