Description

It's snow joke, this really is the top winter festival in New Zealand. The fest dates back to 1975, when some local folk decided to organise a bit of a winter party with mountain races, a few concerts and some beer. Since then it's has gone on to become one mega-event with 10 days worth of street parties, fireworks, international and local acts, jazz, comedy, Mardi Gras and family fun. There's usually upwards of 60,000 people at the event, so be sure to book accommodation ahead if you don't want to miss out on this super winter party. Whether you're into outdoor wintery pursuits or just want some cultural entertainment to warm you from the inside out during the cold months, the Queenstown Winter Festival is the jewel in the crown of your chilly season.
