The Asilah Arts Festival in Morocco established since 1978, is an annual cultural extravaganza that takes place in the month of August. Both studio and performing artists from all over the world, journalists, writers, painters, musicians and dancers gather at the Asilah Arts Festival imparting the setting with colour, exuberance and dynamism.
The painters at the Morocco Asilah Arts Festival are given an entire wall at the Medina to be used as a canvas for their imagination. They paint a mural on it on any topic and itís quite a treat to watch their brushes swishing and swirling to create interesting and intriguing designs. The Asilah Arts Festival, Morocco is probably the most important of the art festivals in Morocco but much more than this; it is a forum for the artists from all around the world to express their art and ideas.
ASILAH is a fortified town on the northwest tip of the Atlantic coast of Morocco, about 50 km from Tangier. Its ramparts remain fully intact. It is now a popular seaside resort, with modern holiday apartment complexes on the coast road leading to the town from Tangier. Its history dates back to 1500 B.C., when the Phoenicians used it as a base for trade.
