We propose that parametrically excited patterns, also known as Faraday patterns, can be observed in nonlinear fiber resonators, where the coefficient of Kerr nonlinearity is periodically varying along the fiber in resonator. We study the parametric instability analytically on the basis of the Floquet theory, also numerically, by direct integration of the system. Instead of classical Faraday wave excitation scenario, where modulation in time causes formation of patterns in space, here we propose
more » ... an inverted scenario, where the modulation in space excites the patterns in time.
