Festival

Morija Arts and Cultural Festival was founded in 1999 as an initiative to help revive tourism after the devastating political upheaval in Lesotho that followed the 1998 elections. It was hoped that the Festival would promote peace, unity and confidence among the Basotho. It later became an event which provides a showcase for Lesotho’s diverse cultural heritage. The Royal Family, especially Her Majesty, the late Queen Mother, ‘Mamohato have offered the greatest moral support to the Festival. Her Majesty Queen ‘Masenate has graciously accepted to become the formal Patron of Morija Museum and the Morija Festival. The Festival has now grown to become the largest of the Museum’s undertakings and Lesotho’s premier cultural event that displays cultural groups and performers from across Lesotho and neighbouring countries, from most traditional to the modern.
