Celebrate Haitian Heritage Month with Krik? Krak!

05/01/2017

Krik? Krak! is a rich tradition of telling stories via Haitian folktales and songs, with the goal of connecting children and families with their rich oral heritage. When Haitians tell a story, they will ask “Krik?”, and the enthusiastic listeners answer “Krak!” – thus the story, or stories, begin. Usually held in May, the Krik? Krak? Festival celebrates Haitian folklore, and there are tales of mystical beauty, songs and music. Stories of magical fish, young lovers, and other characters evoke the wonder and heartache of Haiti, and the imagination, courage, suffering, and endurance of its people. Excellent examples of the elements of Krik? Krak! can be found all over the country, but are especially rich in Port-au-Prince. The markets, the Musee du Pantheon National Haitien, and the Petion-Ville area would all be terrific places to learn more about the history of the festival, and where public performances can be found. Book your Krik? Krak! stay today by calling (877) 810-0975, visiting us online at www.plazahaiti.com/specials, or email: reservations@plazahaiti.com.

    Great experience. All the staff was very helpful and the rooms were very clean. Vladimir and James were very supportive and helpful as well. The front desk and restaurant was high class. We will definitely be back.

  • “Oasis”

    Located off the central town square it has good security and is the obvious expat place to stay. Nice garden breakfast area near a well received pool. Tranquil after the huddle and bustle outside. Rooms are clean, beds are very comfortable and the hot showers a blessing.

  • “Great Haitian atmosphere”

    We really enjoyed this property. The staff was very friendly and even went out of their way to accommodate us, by letting us check in early after flying all night. The atmosphere was very laid back just as most Haitians are.
