Queenstown Winter Festival 2018

* Please note exact dates have not yet been released, but it will be held over the weekend of 23/24 June 2018

The Queenstown Winter Festival celebrates the start of winter like only Queenstown can.

The celebrations in 2017 included fireworks, street parties, music, comedy, Apres Ski dining, mountain events, family fun and a touch of madness. There’s something for all ages and many of the events on the programme are free.

Queenstown has been celebrating for a long time: Way back in 1975, a bunch of locals decided that the start of winter was a great excuse to have a party. What started as a few lolly scrambles for the kids and mountain races for the adults, is now New Zealand’s – and perhaps the southern hemisphere’s - biggest celebration of winter. And everyone’s invited!
