At 600m above sea level at the feet of Mt Ruapehu, the Ohakune Mardi Gras is the biggest party of the winter.

Ohakune Mardi Gras is now firmly established as the premier winter street party of the season; kick-starting the beginning of winter with a no-holds-barred, dressed-up, music inspired HUGE group hug of a party.

Big night, anyone? OMG goes for six full-on hours. The OMG experience is a fabulous concoction of infectious live music, established and up-and-coming musical talent, audience interaction, street entertainment, Xtreme rides, special effects and a fantasticly popular fire and fireworks display. All of this is packaged in a super friendly and safe environment.

With the most electric atmosphere this side of the hemisphere Ohakune Mardi Gras will give you more than just a few new Facebook photos for you and your mates.

In the past, OMG has showcased some of New Zealand’s best up-and-coming musical talent, including: Batucada Sound Machine (2004), Strike (2006), Kora, Concord Dawn (2007), The Checks (2008), Midnight Youth (2009), Dane Rumble (2010), Opshop (2011), I Am Giant, Mt Eden (2012), Please Please (2013), and Peking Duk (2014).

OMG takes place at The Junction, the traditional après-ski capital of Ohakune. The Junction includes: the Powderhorn Chateau, 4 Thames Street, Turoa Lodge, Hot Lava nightclub, and the Suitcase Bar. Sitting elbow-to-elbow with world heritage site Mt Ruapehu, The Junction is not only the gateway to the Turoa skifield, but a stop on the world-famous scenic train journey, the Northern Explorer, and a part of Nga Haerenga, the New Zealand Cycle Trail.
