Dromadaires du Festival du Sahara de Douz.


To discover the Saharan Bedouin culture

Douz International Sahara Festival

From December 25 to 28, 2020


From December 25 to 28, 2020, let yourself be transported by magic

of the Sahara on the occasion of the International Sahara Festival of Douz.


Since 1910 the festival celebrates the rich Arab-Berber heritage of

the region. Douz is the gateway to the Sahara. It’s through her,

that many cultures and generations of nomads

and conquerors have transited.


The Mrazigs tribe will welcome you with a rich and varied program that will allow you to better appreciate the different facets of Bedouin life. It is on a background painting made up of sand dunes that you will discover the traditions of the region; from traditional marriage to camel racing through camel fighting.


Festival-goers will have the opportunity to discover local art as rich as it is captivating with exhibitions, music shows and a fair

of the book and documentary screenings.

The freshness of winter will contrast with the gentle warmth of the sun

which radiates from the emblematic tree of the region, the date palm.


During the four days of the festival the Festival International de Douz,

invites you to discover the habits and customs of the Berber and Arab cultures.

The festival agenda will appeal to all tastes; lovers of arts, culture, music, sports, history, nature and even those looking for a haven of peace to meditate and enjoy majestic landscapes.


Fly to Douz and get lost among its palm trees; do

full of sun in winter and celebrate the Berber and Nomadic culture

with the Festival International du Sahara de Douz!
