Byron Bay is a great place to be on New Years Eve.
There is a free ‘street party’ where the main streets of Byron Bay (Jonson St and Lawson St) will be closed to vehicles and become pedestrian-only. The town gets the extra NYE vibe and there’ll be street entertainers, musicians, food stalls and some market/ artisan stalls at this family-friendly event.
Soul St New Years Eve Celebration
Soul Street is a family-friendly, alcohol free New Year’s Eve celebration in Byron Bay.
This popular street party is a great opportunity for the Byron Bay community and visitors to come together to celebrate New Year’s Eve and to showcase the creativity, lifestyle, and talent that we have in this region. The centre of town is filled with market stalls, food vendors, face painter’s, four stages, numerous bands, buskers, circus performers, fire twirlers, drummers, and children’s activities. All the market stalls run down the centre of Jonson Street from Byron Community Centre to Lawson Lane and throughout Railway Park. Jonson Street is closed, along with Railway Park.
Soul Street starts at 4pm, 31 December and finishes at midnight.
This is a family-friendly, alcohol-free event.
Note: there will be no fireworks or events on the beachfront.
