There are many Queenstown events and activities available year round, in fact this picturesque location has attracted a full calendar!
With four distinct seasons there are fantastic events that take advantage of each backdrop and change in temperature from rolling green hills flourishing with flora to snowy alpine mountains, to bronzed Autumn trees shadowing the crisp lake, to stunning summer days on the water.
June sees the winter in with the Queenstown Winter Festival to celebrate the arrival of the frosty season, shortly afterward Gay Ski Week NZ arrives to paint the town rainbow!
Spring and summer invite the arrival of the Queenstown Marathon and Festival on the Grass among many other sporting, musical, markets, and family events.
Autumn is celebrated best by neighbouring Arrowtown who bring the warm season in in style with their Arrowtown Autumn Festival.
From sunshine to snow, Queenstown entertains year round, with many events complimentary and family friendly and all of them unforgettable.
