Queenstown is New Zealand’s adventure capital. It is also famed for its exciting calendar of events, from festivals to sports events and music concerts that attract international acts, athletes and musicians.
In December and January, it’s no different. Here’s what you can expect to see across the festive season and new year.
Greenstone Entertainment presents Gibbston Valley Winery Summer Concert featuring Toni Childs, Supertramp and James Reyne (Australian Crawl) and Mark Seymour (Hunters & Collectors) at Gibbston Valley Vineyard. This annual concert is a huge drawcard for locals and guests from the region. Held during the day, concert goers complete the day out in Queenstown, for one of the town’s busiest nights!

Set in the vibrant colourful park downtown, the market meanders along the promenade with artisans, visual and performing artists from around the South Island.
This is a Queenstown must do, predominantly for its incredible selection of local produce, deli food and tasty snack options. Come and relax, enjoy the mellow vibes, great food, artisan wares and outstanding mountain views. There’s a massive sandpit for the kids so it’s a great options for families with young kids. It is located close to a trampolining centre and go kart racing, so well placed for slightly older kids who don’t want to walk around the market.
