Come experience the people and culture of Haiti at the Little Haiti Cultural Center in Miami.

The cultural heart of the Haitian diaspora, Little Haiti is slowly evolving from immigrant enclave to a hipster scene as artists and galleries edge in from nearby Wynwood. For now, though, Haitian music, street vendors and small, family-owned businesses still dominate the neighborhood, which earned its nickname in the 1980s, when Haitian refugees fled François “Papa Doc” Duvalier’s oppressive regime for Miami. The area was officially designated as “Little Haiti” by the city of Miami in 2016.
