    By sharing the beauty of Morocco, the Saida Fikri Foundation and over 30 volunteers hope for all people of all races, religions and cultures to come together in a joyous celebration. "Morocco is a beautiful country, not only in the visual sense, but in its people's tolerance, generosity and hospitality," says Fikri. A Moroccan singer and songwriter, Saida Fikri is nicknamed "The Voice of the People without a Voice" due to her work for human rights and liberties in Morocco and she is recognized as a social pioneer in the Middle East and North Africa. She has written a song about peace, love and unity specifically for the event which she will perform live.

    Some attractions at the Magical Morocco celebration will include a Bazaar with typical products and wares, presentations and history of Moroccan tribal rugs, a depiction of a Moroccan wedding, and traditional music and dance performances. Visitors can experience Henna tattoos ($5) and an authentic meal such as Moroccan Pastella or Margaze (sausage) for $7 and Moroccan tea with pastries and cookies ($3). All shows and entertainment are free of charge. Children are very welcome!

    Organizer: The Saida Fikri Foundation
    Tolerance, love, peace, acceptance, respect, unity, are only some words that Saida Fikri's music stands for. The Saida Fikri Foundation is dedicated to the promotion of these messages across the oceans. The foundation will host events centered around the unity of a rainbow of cultures and religions, to bring together people in the name of creativity, communication, and through the power of music which has no language.

    One of our major projects currently is called "Creativity For A Better Future". The project is focused on the establishment of educationally based after school programs in third-world countries, starting with Morocco. The purpose is to develop the minds of the youth and in this way develop the future generations of the society. The children will have a creative outlet involving sports, music, and the arts, thus keeping them from drugs, gangs, and crime. Making a difference in the lives of the children of tomorrow will be the drive they need to make a difference in their own countries and this will fuel the change we want to see in the world.
