Throughout the Fraser Canyon, communities celebrate their unique geography, history and heritage.
These include Lytton's First Nations Healing Gathering in Botanie Valley; May Day celebrations in Boston Bar; a traditional Strawberry Social at Yale's Pioneer Tent Museum and local farmers markets that are summertime mainstays as much for their fresh produce as for casual get-togethers. The largest is the Two Rivers Farmers' Market in Lytton on Friday mornings.
Lytton River Festival
The largest of canyon events, this three-day jubilee pays tribute to its two waterways, the Fraser and Thompson rivers. The Lytton River Festival is a full-on community affair with rafting specials, river races and displays, live entertainment at Spirit Square and street dancing as well as plenty of children's activities such as face-painting and kite-flying. First Nations host a traditional Pow-Wow and there are fireworks in the evening.
