Festival of the Stone is now SOLD OUT!
A neighbourhood party of epic proportions, we’re thrilled to announce the return of Festival of The Stone to our Byron Brewery, Saturday 5 June!
With live music and food trucks on-site, our family-friendly festival is set to welcome in the colder months ahead, as our prized winter limited release, Stone Beer, waits for the pour behind the bar.
Below is your guide to Festival of The Stone 2021 and what’s happening at the event.
FESTIVAL OF THE STONE PROUDLY SUPPORTING: BYRON COMMUNITY CENTRE
We’re proud to announce that all profits go towards reopening the Fletcher Street Cottage via Byron Community Centre. Fletcher Street Cottage, located in the heart of Byron Bay, will be a homelessness hub, providing support and services for Byron’s homeless and disadvantaged community through assistance with food, housing, mental health, physical health, legal advice and counselling, plus providing other basics like a safe place to have a shower and do some washing.
