On November 9th in Marrakech, a new festival will see the day at the Jemaa El Fna square. The “Marrakech Street Food Festival”, is the unique event dedicated to food from the streets.

As a platform for the promotion of Moroccan gastronomy, 20 cooks will concoct a lunch to serve more than 5,000 people during the very first edition of this event, according to the organizers.

The “Marrakech Street Food Festival” aims to pay tribute Moroccan cuisine and solidify its place among Morocco’s many festivals, said the Arts and Culture Foundation, organizer of the event.

To achieve this, the organizers will offer for this first edition of “Marrakech Street Food”, a full tasting day of traditional recipes and new food trends. The Moroccan traditional and revisited cuisine will offer a wide range of specialties drawn from the incomparable culinary heritage of Morocco. The festival has also gathered a line up of storytellers, snake trainers, and food trucks to serve. A photo exhibition by photographer Noureddine Tilsaghani called “The Plate of Happiness” was also scheduled for the occasion.

Already ranked among the 23 cities where street food is the best, the ochre city will certainly add to the charm of this festival.
