  • The Lytton River Festival returns Aug. 30 to Sept. 1.

If you find yourself in Lytton, B.C. from Aug. 30 to Sept. 1, be sure to stop in at the Lytton River Festival.

The street festival will showcase several Indigenous artists—including a performance by Lil'wat Nation band Spiritual Warriors on Friday, Aug. 30.

"From Shmameet Youth Drum Circle opening the festival each day, to Lil'wat Indigenous musicians, to street dancing with mainstream bands and even chicken poop bingo, we have something for everyone at the festival and everyone is welcome," says Nonie McCann, festival secretary and event coordinator, in a release.

(We're particularly curious about that last poultry-based game.)

The weekend will also include traditional crafts, face painting, storytelling, a "Dunk a Cop" tank to raise money for local animal rescues, white water rafting trips, street performers, food and more.
