Festival Program

For the last five years, the “Festival des Grottes” “Cave Festival” and tours have brought together thousands of visitors to Dondon. As a result, the town has registered some sort of a revival. New businesses have sprung; annual revenues have increased in both formal and informal markets; new constructions and renovations are visible across the town.


ODID'S 7th annual Festival des Grottes is a fascinating Eco-cultural historic event in Dondon Haiti. This year ODID will celebrate the 200th year of Ramiers sites situated in Dondon. The site is part of the Park National Historic classified by UNESCO as a world heritage in 1983 alongside with Citadelle and the Sans-Souci palace. The festival will open with a very special parade in honor of the King architect Henry Christophe and his wife Marie Louise Coidavid. It will feature the theater adaptation of "La tragedie de Christophe" . Over a period of five days, the festival will be enriched with music, concerts, cave excursions, historical tours, art exhibition, and a closing ball with Tropicana d 'Haiti. Some of the most known groups in the country like Boukman Eksperyans, Septent, Ekip will be in concerts accompanied by new talents and local artists for amazing entertainment. For five days, enjoy Haiti, through art, gastronomy, history, caves, dance, rara, and songs, with the people of Dondon.
