The Back to Batoche Days festival gets underway this weekend.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the festival will once again be held virtually.

Festivities begin Thursday night and wrap up on Sunday.

Traditional events include fiddle, square dancing and jig competitions.

On the music mainstage Saturday night, key performers include Andrea Menard and the Ivan Flett Memorial Dancers.

New this year as part of Food Truck Alley, viewers can watch home cooks from across the nation prepare traditional Métis dishes.

Events will be live-streamed on the Back to Batoche Days website.
