Soul Street

New Years Eve 2017

Our popular Soul Street Market is back! Come and celebrate New Year’s Eve with us right in the heart of Byron Bay!

The Soul Street Market 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 market is open from 4pm to 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.

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!


This year Byron Bay’s “Soul Street” has a theme of renewal. The family-friendly event will see Jonson Street lined with stalls who are local, healthy, sustainable and take special pride in their presentation. The event aims to be welcoming and has a relaxed family atmosphere.

To reflect this we are looking for stalls that do not do hard marketing and have gentle lighting and an artistic approach to their decor. Stalls will be themed in any of the following categories: food, adornment, renewal and experiences.


Ali Buckley will be Onsite Manager for the event, coordinating the stalls and may approach your stall at local markets. There is a limited number of spaces available for Soul Street and therefore Ali will be carefully selecting stalls that fit the event theme.

There will not be an open expression of interest this year.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. If you have a stall that you think fits the theme please email Ali at
