About the Event
Millions of visitors grace Byron’s shores annually and who can blame them - this is a place as well-versed in seascapes as it is in spirit. The traditional custodians of surrounding Bundjalung Nation called it Cavanbah (or meeting place), a role it played for thousands of years - and Byron’s not changed its tune ever since. A once small surf town turned alternative oasis, home to a heaving population of creative talent across a kaleidoscope of different fields. Caper is a celebration of this colourful community, the melting pot of individuals who have made this popular holiday town a hometown. A food and lifestyle-focused affair honouring the long-established laid-back ethos of this place and its appreciation for the surrounding environment, not to mention its local talent, growing culinary scene, traditional land custodians and ample natural assets. The four-day festival is a foray through Byron Shire’s food, drink, music, wellness, art, community, and entertainment, through a cluster of ticketed and free community events and exhibitions. Caper will be scattered from beach to hinterland, from morning through night, in restaurants, breweries, businesses and iconic landmarks, with Byron Town as its epicentre. We welcome all who love Byron, from locals to those travelling through - this is a chance to unite in an annual event which pays a toast to the unique Rainbow Region.
