How to read this calendar

About this calendar

Like reading a calender is hard, right? Maybe not, but to help you get the most out of this one here is a rundown of the information contained within.

All care has been taken to ensure that the information in this calendar is correct at time of publication (November 2013) but The Echo accepts no responsibility for errors contained within or for changes made after publication. Please confirm dates closer to the time of events. Event websites are listed in the calendar for easy reference. The best source of information on anything happening in or around the Byron Shire is, of course, the current Byron Shire Echo and Echonetdaily – be sure to check them for up-to-date and comprehensive coverage of all Byron Shire events.

Date The big number.

Dates for festivals, shows and markets were confirmed with the organisers or on their websites. Some events which were yet to have dates confimed at time of publication have been listed in the first or last empty cell of the month they are likely to occur. These yet to be confimed events are: Splendour in the Grass and Gromfest in July; The Living Earth Festival in late August or early September; Big Scrub Rainforest Day in September; Byron Spirit Festival in October; Byron Latin Fiesta in November; Uplift Festival and Falls Festival in December.

Public holidays NSW public holidays are marked in red and listed next to the date. Other significant days are listed next to the date in grey.

Festivals, events, markets Festivals, events and markets are listed under the date. Festival and event websites are listed under the first day of the event.

Extra information

Moon phases, solstice and equinox times are NSW daylight savings time.

Vital information for Byron Shire residents such as school terms, schoolies dates and The Echo’s birthday are listed in the bottom left.

Thanks to the excellent Astrological Calendar and Moon Planting Guide for making this information easy to find!

Markets have been confirmed with their organisers. The Echo prints a market guide in each edition so if you are not sure of a market’s schedule and plan on travelling to attend one we recommend checking the current Echo to confirm. It is also likely that some special markets in addition to those listed will be held – particularly around Christmas 2014. Calendar concept and design: Ziggi Browning

Care was taken to include all significant events within the Byron Shire. If your event was ommited we apologise. Please let us know and we will be sure to include it next time. Some events from outside of the shire have been included because of their regional significance (Mardi Grass, Lismore Lantern Parade) but the focus has been on being comprehensive for the Byron Shire.
