Support Those who Support Us

Make sure you take the time to support businesses who support Winter Pride and our values based organisation - Pride Pledge.

Look out for these Official Stickers and put your pink dollar where it counts. Without the support of around 100 businesses across town our festival would not be possible.

Check out our Rainbow Friendly Business Directory below - download one, or you can collect at the airport or a range of Pride Pledge stores and our events throughout the week.

You will notice that many very successful businesses in town choose NOT to support the festival. They happily take your money and benefit from you as a customer yet they make zero contribution to making the festival work or to support local LGBTI+ values in our workplaces, schools and communty.

Please LOOK for these official supporter stickers before you spend your money and SUPPORT THOSE WHO SUPPORT US.

Winter Pride

And look out for the more general suporters who are trying to build a community that is safe, visible and inclusive for all LGBTI+ people.

You will see this sticker on all all values-based organsiations' doors.

Event passes - ticket bundles for events - Maxi, Mini and First and Final Weekender Event Passes

This year's line up is, once again, going to be epic. First off the block, we are offering Mini and Maxi event passes for those fo you who are joining us all week and we are once again releasing our extremely popular "First" and "Final" Weekender passes.

ALL our event MAXI and MINI event passes include a Winter Pride Beanie. And we are also offering a limited release EARLYBIRD discount on all passes.

SCROLL down this page for further details on each event pass.

Last year, many of our events sold out, so we advise you to purchase tickets for events as early as possible. We will do our best to have door sales to most events, but they might be quite limited.

Please note that some of the events are not included in event passes as some are free entry (like Pride in the Park) and some are ticketed separately (like the Urge Underwear Party (MSM)).

Package Includes:

See individual passes below for details.

Additional Details:

It is important to note that, as we are still finalising the details of the events, Winter Pride reserves the right to substitute an event on the schedule and / or included on a pass with its equivalent replacement. For bundled event passes, in an instance where there is a rescheduling issue, refunds and partial refunds will not be given on bundeled event passes. Entry to the replacement event on the schecule will be provided to the pass holder.

Mountain Passes and Pride Bus Options

Get your mountain passes for Winter Pride's festival mountain partners Cardrona, Coronet Peak and The Remarkable (NZSki) - and enjoy our free Winter Pride mountain hosts, a pride-filled lunch area on each mountain, with DJ/Live music.

The Winter Pride festival moves the fun around the mountains over the week. So make sure that you join us on the right mountain each day - can't wait to see you there. Check the official website for details and the schedule for the On-Mountain Series, proudly supported by Holiday Inn Express Queenstown.

If you are unfamiliar with how the different mountains work then please read this carefully. Cardrona is a separate mountain from the NZSki mountains (Coronet and The Remarkables). To use all mountain festival days on all mountains, you need a "COMBO". We suggest that you look at the dates and mountains above and think about how many days you need on each mountain.

For instance, if you are coming

  • for the first or last weekend, you need a 2 day Combo (1 day on each mountain)
  • for a long weekend 4 days - you probably need a 4 day Combo
  • for 8 + days - you probably need the 8 day combo
    and if you are doing more of a pick and choose, look at the actual days you want to go up the mountain because a single mountain pass may better suit your needs.

And there are the incredibly easy Pride Buses daily, where you can meet up with mates and truly not worry about the hassle of self-drive up icy and rough 4x4 roads at altitude.

The Pride Buses will pick up and drop off guests from our key partner hotels in Queenstown. The buses leave at 8 am (times vary depending on your stop) and return by 5 pm. You will receive more specific details on pick up and drop off after you do your final registration for passes in early August. Please note, all guests who purchase Pride Bus tickets will need to register online (follow instructions on your email) in order to be included on the final bus manifest. Please ensure that you follow the registration instructions so that you can catch your bus!

Please note: Mountain Passes and Pride Bus Passes are SEPARATE.

Onsen Hot Pools - a long standing favourite

An Onsen Hot Pools experience is one of the must do's of any getaway to Queenstown. It's one of life's small delights that can be enjoyed with friends in one of the district's most scenic spots. This year, we have two pool types on offer. For those guests familiar with the Onsen Hot Pools' facilities, the Indoor Pools are the exclusive pools we have traditionally had, and we now offer Outdoor Pools, a new on-site development where guests have exclusive use of the pool. These pools will be completely outdoor, surrounded by a Japanese garden, but will only be available in 2020.

Onsen Hot Pools is located high on a cliffside overlooking the magnificent Shotover River canyon, providing views over breathtaking alpine scenery and the perfect vantage point to watch the Shotover Jet jetboats on the river below.

Onsen Hot Pools are hot and steamy on snowy days, warm and sheltered on rainy days, cool and shady on sunny days, and simply magical in the evenings! Each pool room can accommodate up to four adults and are perfect for individuals, couples, families and friends.

*All bookings will include 60 minutes to soak and relax in nature while you enjoy a complimentary drink and snack.

There is a complementary transfer to and from "The Station" to Onsen. You will be emailed closer to the time to confirm your transfer.
