On the first Thursday of every month grab your friends and go on an art adventure. Starting at 5pm and finishing at 7pm - seven of Queenstown top galleries are open late, showcasing some stunning art, wine from Akarua wines and selected artists talks. Participating galleries are: Queenstown Arts Centre, ArtBay, Romer, StarkWhite, Broker, Milford and Lightworx.

First Thursdays Queenstown is a contemporary art event instigated by Julian Knights as part of his work with the Queenstown Recovery and Regeneration taskforce. This taskforce explores how to diversify and underpin the district's local economy and its attraction to visitors, including through building arts and culture tourism. First Thursdays builds upon the burgeoning art scene in Queenstown and echoes an approach already successful in other international mountain towns such as Banff and Aspen. First Thursdays Queenstown joins other organisations and events in working to promote Queenstown's natural as well as cultural assets and drive new visitors to the region.
