Roses, regardless where you are in the world, have a huge fascination with visitors and this is very much the case in ‘Morocco’s Valley of the Roses’.
There really is so much to see at the Rose Festival in the beautiful town of El Kelaa des M’Gouna, which is well recognised as the largest town in the lovely Dades Valley.
Its here at the Rose Festival that the local people and farmers come together to celebrate their successful harvest through merriment in local music, dancing and markets along the El Kelaa’s main street, while taking in the magnificent proceedings as a beautiful Rose Queen is chosen and will oversee the following crop’s success.
The town of El Kelaa is also well known for its production of scented rose water used in a multitude of things within Morocco.
The Rose Festival Runs from 14 May to 27 May
