Expect a mouth-watering lineup of food and drink choices at this year’s Byron Bay Surf Festival. The five-day event (February 20–24) will see tasty opportunities served up by Byron’s best vendors, producers, brewers, roasters, fermenters, and growers.

Friday 22 February bring the family, the picnic rug and cushions for Go Pro’s Sunset Cinema and Twilight Surf Art Markets at Dening Park. Leave the picnic basket at home; from authentic pizza, cold pressed juice to aromatic samosas, BBSF has you covered with food and drink vendors to tantalise your every taste. Peruse the markets before kicking back with nutritious delights for a special welcome to country, Roxy’s Byron premiere of Lisa Andersen’s film Trouble and live tunes.

For the non-surfers, start early the next morning Saturday 23 February with yoga (8am), a coffee and Farmer Jo’s Muesli by the foreshore at the Surf Art Markets (9am–5pm). An annual favourite, the markets showcase top shapers, artists, designers, creatives, not-for-profit organisations, food, and drink. There’ll also be workshops, live tunes, and not-to-be-missed enviro panels. Stay nourished throughout the day by enjoying a cool creation from The Bucha of Byron, a locally sourced dish from the Three Blue Ducks food stall or a scrumptious treat from the 30 other food and drink vendors who will be attending.

The flavour doesn’t stop there. Byron’s local brewer Stone & Wood will be serving their satiating and delicious cold brews at events throughout the festival. Enjoy a Pacific Ale or Green Coast Lager and live tunes at The Beach Hotel, who will be hosting epic bands, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night.
