You might not know it but New Year’s Eve in Marrakech is party time! There are events, dinners and parties across the city and at all different price levels and experiences to be experienced. I’ve put together this list of events quickly in case you’re visiting Marrakech this time of year and looking for something fun to do.
There are quite a few parties, and most are geared toward adults. I have attempted to find some family-friendly parties however they are few and far between.
Please note I am updating these listings as more information becomes available. Please double-check before booking. Listings with a star have been updated.
