The Midwinter Carnival is a much-loved community celebration in the heart of the Dunedin winter, where art and performance create a unique and magical event.

The highlight of the evening is the Carnival procession, which includes over 1,000 people and hundreds of handcrafted lanterns. Every year, a much-anticipated spectacle is the giant lanterns, costumed stilt walkers, dancers and musicians, parading through the Octagon.

This year's theme is A Winter Tale - a darker take on beloved fairy tales inspired by the likes of the Brothers Grimm.

The Midwinter Carnival will take place on Saturday 30th June (with a postponement date of Sunday 1st July) at the Octagon, in central Dunedin. The event will start at 5.30pm, with the procession taking place at 6pm.

There is a suggested donation of $5 for adults. Children are free.
