Real Journeys Queenstown Winter Festival

The Real Journeys Queenstown Winter Festival reflects the diversity and vibrancy of our community. We showcase why we are so proud of our place and invite you to come and share that with us.

Starting back in 1975 with a few community events - including our pioneering Dog Derby - festival has evolved into a bucket list event in NZ - something everyone looks forward to in their annual calendar. We celebrate the Winter season starting in New Zealand and in our beautiful region by hosting events on mountain, on (and in) water, and around our CBD.

2018 saw over 45,000 people come to festival and boasts some impressive news coverage (even though our new baby Neve arrived over Winter Festival)

We encourage everyone to participate in our celebration and be part of the action
