The Moroccan American Connections in Revere (MACIR) is hosting its third annual Moroccan Cultural Day on Saturday June 22 (rain date June 29), from 1pm to 7pm at Shirley Avenue Municipal Parking Lot. The event will highlight the culture of the growing Moroccan diaspora in the city of Revere estimated to be at least 10% of the Revere’s population. The event is free and open to the public.
“The success of last year’s event will allow us to attract bigger sponsors to make this year’s event surpass the ones before. As a matter of fact, we will be raffling a free round trip ticket to Morocco and other surprises will be announced soon” Rachid Moukhabir, Director of the Moroccan Festival, said.
This celebration of Moroccan culture will feature Moroccan food, live music, henna tattoo art, and local Moroccan vendors. Special guests include Revere Mayor Brian Arrigo, city officials and some Moroccan celebrities. There will also be a traditional Moroccan dress contest where the winners will be named Mr. and Ms. Moroccan American. Yet, the best exhibitor will be nominated the 2019 Honorary Ambassador of Morocco to the City of Revere.
“During last year’s event, we promoted the country of Algeria and this year, Colombia will be our guest country” Mr. Abdelghani Naim, President of MACIR, said.
Special thanks to the festival sponsors: Royal Air Maroc, East Boston Neighborhood Health Center, Mass Cultural Council, East Boston Saving Bank and Sabrine Bakery and Cafe.
