I would very much appreciate the input of anyone who has experience Eid el Adhar/Kabir when in Fes. I think the date this year is around the Sat 4th or Sun 5th of October.
A friend and I are planning to visit Morocco - Fes, Meknes, Chefchaouen area - late Sept/early Oct and we've just thought about the Eid and wondering about the potential impact on our trip. At the moment we are very much at the planning stage and nothing is booked, although we are rather restricted to limited dates if we are to do this trip this year. We need more information on how the Eid is celebrated in the local area. How it may impact on public transport, eating out, tourist sites etc. We are both interested in cultural/religious events and would have no problems possibly being restricted to a point for a couple of days but equally can't afford the time to just sit around one place for too long. Perhaps one town would be more inclusive to us as visitors than another! (By that I mean perhaps we would have a better chance to witness/experience the Eid along with local people in one town more than another.)
We have read the information posted on the Top Questions for the Morocco Forums, and done some searches, but would appreciate hearing from anyone who experienced Eid more location specific (so will be posing the same question on more than one Moroccan forum). Thanks.
