Our popular New Year’s Eve party right in the heart of Byron Bay is back! Come and celebrate this special night with us.


About Soul Street

Byron Bay’s unique New Year’s Eve street party will be open from 4pm – midnight. The centre of town will be 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 will 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 from 4pm.

Soul Street is a great opportunity for the Byron Bay community and visitors alike to come together to celebrate New Year’s Eve and to showcase the creativity, lifestyle, and talent that we have in this region.

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 will be a fun, safe, community-driven, alcohol-free event!
