WINTER STARTS HERE and it's time to celebrate - 22nd to 25th June 2017

It's a ten day extravaganza of Queenstown's unique culture and community with street parties, fireworks, international and local acts, comedy, family fun, and plenty of Mountain Mayhem.

Town will be a-buzz with around 45,000 people celebrating the arrival of winter in true Queenstown style.

Way back in 1975 a bunch of locals decided that the start of winter was a great excuse to have a party. They organised races on the mountain and in town, lollies for the kids, beers for the grown-ups, a concert or two and a town-wide ball, all of which made the Festival a great success. News spread quickly and the next year people came from further afield to join the festivities.

Since then the Festival has evolved into New Zealand's - and perhaps the southern Hemisphere's - biggest celebration of winter.

WHEN: Thursday 22nd to Sunday 25th June 2017
