Festivals

The most famous of festivals in this region is the Imilchil Marriage Festival, held each year in September. Legend has it that a Romeo and Juliet story happened here ages ago; since then, an annual festival is held for young people to choose their own partner. Though lately the festival has been attracting more and more tourists, it's still a sight to behold. The Setti Fatma Moussem, held in August, still contains the religious elements of a moussem (pilgrimage festival). Foreigners are welcome and will be pulled into the games and entertainment.
