Last day of the 43rd Queenstown Winter Festival

Carnival atmosphere on the streets of Queenstown for the last day of the 43rd Queenstown Winter Festival

25 June 2017

For attendees trying to take in every last event in the 43rd Queenstown Winter Festival before the end of the jam-packed four-day weekend of festivities the day started at dawn in the mountains and ended under a crisp and starry night in downtown Queenstown.

“The final day of every Queenstown Winter Festival begins with the Macpac Skin to Summit at Coronet Peak and ends with the Auckland Airport Carnival taking over downtown Queenstown,” said Lisa Buckingham, Festival Director of the Queenstown Winter Festival.

“It’s fitting that we bookend this final day of the 2017 Queenstown Winter Festival celebrating our alpine playground and our community,” said Ms Buckingham.
