Nonlinear polaritons in microcavity waveguides are demonstrated to exhibit multi-stable behaviour and rich dynamics, including filamentation and soliton formation. We find that the multi-stability originates from co-existense of different transverse modes of the po- laritonic waveguide. Modulational stability and conditions for multi-mode polariton solitons are studied. Soliton propagation in tilted, relative to the pump momentum, waveguides is demonstrated and a critical tilt angle for the soliton propagation is found.
