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.
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.
A little weekly farmer’s market set in the picturesque and historic Arrowtown, about 20 minutes from Queenstown. This is a local’s favourite, loved for its delicious fresh produce, hand-made and artisan goods, and live music.
