The Queenstown Winter Festival is a truly unique property to Queenstown and New Zealand. It is a 4 day festival that embraces the local community and reflects the identity of our place nationally and internationally whilst announcing the start of New Zealand’s Winter and Ski season.

Since its beginnings in 1975, festival has developed into a National bucket list event, firmly confirmed in annual calendars and wish lists.

Now, festival hosts 4 days of free entertainment that mirrors the energy and vibrancy of Queenstown and invites visitors to party like Queenstowners.

Festival requires funding to continue to exist, and we would love to hear from you if you’d like to support what has become a hallmark event in New Zealand.
