On the road towards Boulemane mountain region lies the enchanting town of Sefrou. Once known as the ‘Garden of Morocco’ and its multi racial population of Muslims, Jews and Christians, Sefrou town celebrates the harvest of cherry crops in June.
Despite living much from its past reputation, Sefrou town still holds much charm and charisma. This year’s cherry festival promises to make a healthy comeback after last years break.
Now programmed to free up the calendar away from the Fes festival, Sefrou Cherry Festival will be held from the 17th – 20th of June.
With Cherry Queens and Princesses, live music, fantasias, processions, stalls of arts and crafts, contemporary and historical exhibitions and the possible honor of the Kings presence, C.V also recommends this event for the local’s participation in this delightful ancient market town.
There are a few hotels in town if you wish to stay over night. The best for personality and location is Dar Attamani, an old Rabbi’s house restored in great rustic taste in the heart of the old medina.
