Soul Street is Byron Bay’s New Year’s event right in the heart of town!
Soul Street started on 31st December 2013. Last year, around 10,000 visitors mingled with musicians, artisans and food stalls to create a chilled out vibe to bring in the 2017 year. 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.
For this event, the Byron Community Centre partners with Byron Shire Council to promote a ‘Safe Summer in the Bay’. Soul Street New Year’s Eve in Byron Bay is a fun, safe, community-driven, alcohol-free event!
