Cap-Haïtien's street art scene peaks during the annual festival Festi Graffiti

Home to dozens of galleries and artist-led-initiatives, the suburbs of Turgeau and Pétion-Ville are usually the hub of the annual Festi Graffiti - The International Festival of Urban Arts.


This year however, the street art festival takes place in Cap-Haïtien.


Ramble through the sun-bleached streets in Haiti's second city and soak up the freshest work by emerging Haitian street artists and visiting artists, from figurative murals to photography installations revealing Haiti's urban dance battle scene.


This year's installment of Festi Graffiti is happening between August 16 and 22, 2022. Hosting street artists from Mexico, Jamaica, and United States. This year's theme is "natural disasters - living with them."
