Flying the PRIDE flag at Pride Festival Queenstown

Queenstown will come alive with colour and sound as the biggest Pride Festival in the southern hemisphere kicks off. With flags and banners, music and decorations, the town will embrace the multi-coloured rainbow of diversity and inclusion. Since its inception, it has grown from a long weekend to a festival of a week and a half. It’s a safe place to come and be yourself, celebrate with others, make new friends and have awesome fun!

Spinnaker Bay’s centrally located apartments are a short walk into town along the waterfront track or an even shorter commute via car or bus. We are only 30 minutes from the Coronet Peak car park, 40 to The Remarkables and an hour 20 to the top of Cardrona. For a full schedule, alongside ticketing and in-depth information, click here.
