Ryga Festival

The Ryga Festival, August 29 to September 2, 2018, features concerts, plays, storytelling and more, with internationally-known artists and the best of Okanagan performers, led by
Artistic Director Heather Davies.

George Ryga (1926-1987) is considered by many to be Canada’s most important English-language playwright. At his Summerland, BC home he created plays, screenplays, novels and poetry, including the ground-breaking play, The Ecstasy of Rita Joe, which was published to critical acclaim in 1967 and remains the best-selling Canadian play of all time.
