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 SUPORT THOSE WHO SUPPORT US.*****

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 Weekender Event Passes + Club Status options.

This year's line up is, once again, going to be epic. First off the block, we are offering Mini and Maxi event passes, and we have now got "First" and "Long" Weekender passes. So those of you joining us just for ONE of the two weekends of the festival can now make the most of it.

ALL our event passes include the equivalent of at least 5% off the standard individual ticket pricing. And we are also offering a limited release EARLYBIRD discount of a further 5%.

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

Last year, most 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 fo the events which worked really well in 2018 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)).

And in 2019 we are introducing a few newbies, like "Queenstown's Got Talent", on the Wednesday evening. We will have live performance and drag acts, as we test out moving on from the formal cabaret evening of the past. Other changing events this year include the Cards Against Humanity games night where we are going to take a more leisurely pace than last year, and we have spiced things up a bit by moving out of the Wild West and into a Military Party on the first Sunday Night.

We are also testing a welcome event on the first Friday night - details still to come - and a relaxed final Sunday Session for those who want to stay in town until the Monday rather than dashing off on the final Sunday during the day.

And for the first time, 2019's the Shotover Jet Off-Mountain Series, as a Pride Pledge initiative, will have a Pride Sevens Touch Tournament, so if you are a rugby fan, then this will be a must for you. Mixed teams and a great way to spend a late Friday morning.

In 2019, we are also offering our deluxe version of each pass: Winter Pride CLUB. CLUB Status gives you that extra special experience including shared airport transfers, a choice of adventure or pamper activity, some with a CLUB dinner (similar to 2018's VIP dinner) and, among other things, the limited edition and much sought after Winter Pride T-shirt and Beanie. So if you want that little bit of extra in your experience, then the Winter Pride Club options are the ones for you.

It's going to be fun and we can't wait for you to join us.

Package Includes:

See individual passes below for details.

Additional Details:

It is important to note that you will receive follow up emails from Eventfinda and Winter Pride to redeem your tickets to individual events following your purchase of these event passes. If you do not manage to complete the redemption process according to the instructions on the emails, we will not be able to guarantee individual tickets to events if you miss the redemption deadlines. Failure to read redemption emails and complete the process will not entitle you to a refund.
