CELEBRATING THE PEOPLE OF THE RIVERS
Labour Day Weekend
The Lytton River Festival is a celebration of two great rivers – the Thompson and Fraser – and their historic and present role in the small community of Lytton, BC.
Join us on Labour Day weekend as we celebrate the rich history of the people of the rivers.
The Interior Salish First Nations people have lived along these magnificent rivers for over 10,000 years and are an integral part of the River Festival. Their rivers are integrated into their culture.
The Village of Lytton, Lytton First Nations, Lytton & District Chamber of Commerce and Kumsheen Rafting Resort are active partners in this fun-filled three-day river celebration.
Artisans & Artist Displays
On Sunday afternoon First Nations and local artisans demonstrate their skills in basket making, drum & rattle construction, painting, sculpting, arrowhead making, and more!
Live music, street dancing, fire spinners, and performances by Circus West. There is entertainment for all ages at this one-of-a-kind festival.
Chicken Poop Bingo
A unique Lytton tradition, this hilarious bingo game involves you, a twoonie, a chicken, a few chicken droppings, a bingo board (large one), anticipation and tension. You’ll love it!
