(Heritage Festival 44 km)

Zibdine is known for its summer celebration of traditional village life. During the festival villagers wear folkloric costumes as they demonstrate old farming and food preparation methods. Among the traditions that come alive is wheat threshing using a huge stone mill powered by oxen. Smaller mills, fun by hand, grind salt, corn or cracked wheat.

The visitor can see arak manufactured in a home still and discover how charcoal, straw brooms and other domestic necessities are made. There is also an old fashioned “tabune,” a stone oven for baking bread.
