The Throne Day in Morocco is a national holiday celebrated on July 30th each year. The day is dedicated to the King's accession to the throne, when King Mohammed VI succeeded his father Hassan II on 30 July 1999. The holiday is marked by street parties, military parades, and fireworks. The festivities take place in all Moroccan cities, but we suggest visiting some of the largest throne festivals in Marrakesh or Rabat.
According to Moroccan tradition, the king and his followers wear white on this day. You will also see many people in the streets in traditional Moroccan costumes. Traditional clothing for women and men in Morocco consists of long flowing robes with hoods of light colors and slippers. These simple clothes have been cultivated since the ancient times and are still a part of the living tradition.
