Epcot Morocco Pavilion Gallery Has a New Exhibit!

The Gallery of Arts and History in the Morocco pavilion in Epcot has just reopened with a new exhibit: “Race Against the Sun: Ancient Technique to Modern Competition.” This exhibit showcases two incredible modern-day competitions – Marathon des Sables (Marathon of the Sands) and Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles du Maroc (Rally of the Gazelles). It also showcases the rich history of the ancient inhabitants of the Sahara, the Berbers.

The exhibit features immersive experiences, including a lifelike diorama of Marathon of the Sands with race gear and trophies from Moroccan competitors, and an interactive photo opportunity highlighting Rally of the Gazelles – the off-road, all-woman desert rally. Each of these intense competitions take place in the Sahara Desert, and guests can also discover how the Sahara’s original inhabitants, the Berbers, mastered the challenges of living in the formidable environment.

In celebration of the new exhibit, guests can get a taste of what it’s like to participate in an intense desert competition. At Tangerine Café in the Morocco pavilion, discover “sellou,” a food highlighted in “Race Against the Sun” that marathon participants commonly eat during their race. With ingredients like almonds and sesame seeds, this energy-packed snack gives runners the boost they need to complete their journey.
