Fes Festival of Sufi Culture 2010

Par Chemins has announced the 2010 dates of the ever-popular Sufi Festival: 17-24 April.

The Hamadcha Sufi brotherhood performs at the Palais Mokri, Festival 2006

The festival is the brainchild of Sufi scholar, Faouzi Skalli, and this will be the fourth edition. It explores aspects of Sufi thought and its relevance in the world today. Although the programme has not yet been released (watch this space!), there are usually talks and debates during the day and concerts of Sufi music in the evenings. All events are held in the Fez medina.

Accommodation is always at a premium at this time, so if you plan to be in Fez for the festival, check out Fez Riads. Alternatively, you might like to explore the possibility of staying with a family in a traditional house - contact Ziyarates Fes for this interesting option.
