The Byron Latin Fiesta is at the Byron Theatre.

The 17th Annual Byron Latin Fiesta is on from November 3 till 6 in Byron Bay. Start with the pre-party on Thursday 3.

Join in for an inspiring weekend of festivities with an All-Australian artist lineup making the most of the amazing talent right here on our shores! 

Indulge your Latin passion at Australia’s longest-running Latin dance festival!

The event features: 30+ dance workshops. Learn to dance with our beginner workshops or expand your skills and learn new styles if you already dance and see 20+ performances from local and national student teams plus professional shows.

Live band Chukale will be playing their best Salsa and Bachata on the Saturday night and there will be plenty of time for social dancing during the lunch breaks and a Tango Milonga on the Sunday evening.

The Byron Latin Fiesta has taken over the whole Byron Theatre and Community Centre for the event. 

There are three workshop spaces for the days and the nights become dance paradise. The Byron Theatre’s full dance floor is in use for the Salsa, Bachata and Latino dancers. The upstairs rooms are for the Kizomba and Zouk vibes. Plus – mingle, have a drink, a bite to eat and chill at the courtyard or the verandah balcony bars.

This event ends three long years (owing to Covid) between fiestas and the Byron Latin Fiesta cannot wait to celebrate with you all!

Tickets and information can be found at byronlatinfiesta.com.au.
