Byron Bay turns on the style for a 10-day gourmet festival

Byron Bay is calling out to food and wine lovers with the Caper Byron Bay Food & Culture Festival returning in May. 

Local favourite the North Byron Hotel will be the major venue with a line-up curated by chef Louis Tikaram.

The 10-day event runs from May 17-26, encompassing two weekends, and features local produce, restaurants, and arts and wellness communities of the Northern Rivers.

Key chefs and restaurants involved include David Moyle from Salty Mangrove (the inaugural festival organiser), Darren Robertson from Three Blue Ducks, Jason Saxby from Raes on Wategos, Ben Devlin from Pipet, Matt Stone from You Beauty, Mindy Woods from Karkalla, Karl and Katrina Kanetani from Beach Byron Bay, Pepsi Nakbunchuay from Bang Bang, Robbie Oijvall from Lightyears, and Marcello Polifrone from Harvest.

The highlight of the festival will be the We Like to Tiki official closing party at North Byron Hotel, where Tikaram, Jake Kellie (Arke, Adelaide), Ross Magnaye (Serai, Melbourne), and Jedd Rifai (North Byron Hotel) will serve Pacific-style 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.

"We have a lot of fun activities lined up and look forward to welcoming festival goers as they join our community gatherings.” says Rifai, licensee of the North Byron Hotel.

Tikaram is equally enthused, saying: "Being part of the first-ever Caper Festival as a guest chef back in 2022 was a blast, and now I'm stoked to come back home to Byron Shire and curate. 

"With heaps of mates in the chef and supplier scene and top-notch produce at our fingertips, we've got some cracking events lined up. I can't wait to get stuck in and show off what we've got cooking."

Key events include the Taste the Cape official opening party held at Three Blue Ducks.

Elements of Byron, a beachside resort, is the official hotel partner and is offering 15% off the best available rate across the festival dates with discount code CAPER.
