Winter Festival – July 1

American Express® Invitational Ski Race

Blink and you might miss it – these guys will make you feel like a sleepy tortoise coming down the slopes.
NZ’s finest blast it out down the Coronet course while a handful of celebs risk doing themselves serious damage racing against the clock.

The Racket Mardi Gras

Queenstown’s biggest street party has a real South American feel with a stage dedicated to those who know how to party.

Tahuna Breaks and Batucuda Sound Machine provide the rhythm on the main stage while fire dancers and stilt-walkers pump up the atmosphere at street level.

A real-life samba band will lead the parade, leaving you with your heart in your mouth and feet that won’t keep still.

Eat early from the yummy food stalls then get lost in the mayhem as the party continues into the night.
Alcohol is available from the Lions tent.
