Caper Byron Bay Food & Culture Festival


Mark your calendars as Caper Byron Bay Food & Culture Festival returns to Byron Bay in May, this year teaming up with locals favourite pub North Byron Hotel as its presenting partner. With a line-up curated by celebrated chef Louis Tikaram (Stanley head chef), this ten day event, spanning two weekends, honours the amazing produce, restaurants, arts and wellness community, and counterculture of the Northern Rivers.

As the Official Watering Hole for the festival, North Byron Hotel is the perfect venue to kick off the festivities or unwind after a day of indulgence. From live music performances to cooking demonstrations, kids pony rides with Zephyr Horses, and cheese and wine tastings, there’s something for everyone with the pub’s daily activities. All Caper Byron Bay Food & Culture Festival ticket holders will receive a complimentary drink coupon with every purchase too.

The official opening party, Taste the Cape, will be held at Three Blue Ducks, featuring a canape line-up from more than a dozen renowned local chefs and restaurants including Dave Moyle from Salty Mangrove (inaugural festival organiser), Jason Saxby from Raes on Wategos, Ben Devlin from Pipit, Matt Stone from You Beauty, Mindy Woods from Karkalla and many more.

Chefs Night Out promises a wild and delicious evening spent with some of Australia’s best chefs, bouncing from venue to venue while snacking and sipping, and picking up passengers along the way. The Brunswick Picture House Dinner and Show chef takeover is back this year with Rock the Casbah, a live Arabian Nights cabaret performance with The Smoking Camel restaurant serving up a Middle Eastern menu.

A highlight of the Caper Byron Bay Food & Culture Festival is the We Like to Tiki official closing party at North Byron Hotel, where Louis Tikaram, Jake Kellie (Arke, Adelaide), Ross Magnaye (Serai, Melbourne), and Jedd Rifai (North Byron Hotel) will delight guests with Pacific snacks cooked over an open fire, paired with refreshing drinks. Attendees are encouraged to dress loud and dance the night away to live music and DJs with the closing after party kicking on late.

Jake Kellie and Ross Magnaye will also be popping up for a special intimate dining event in the Byron hinterland where they will be cooking up a feast over an outdoor fire while guests enjoy sundowners and sway to acoustic tunes before sitting down under the stars.
