Winter Pride Sponsorship
Winter Pride is the largest Winter Pride festival in the Southern Hemisphere, one of the largest Pride festivals in New Zealand, and now one of the largest Winter Prides in the world. 2018 was a record year for the festival following the brand change from Gay Ski Week QT to Winter Pride.
2018 had over 100% growth in attendance on 2017 with more than 3000 guests attending over 60 events over 8 days, 7 nights in Queenstown. In 2018 we introduced the new public event - Pride in the Park - which enjoyed approximately 5000 attendees.
Winter Pride estimates an economic impact to the region of $11,500,000 and growing. Winter Pride enjoyed a social media reach of more than 2 million impressions
throughout the festival campaign plus additional radio, print, online, and TV media coverage giving exposure to the festival, Queenstown, and our partners.
Winter Pride is a social enterprise and is always looking for ways to partner with as broad and as inclusive a range of partners as possible, especially local partners within the Queenstown Lakes District.
As a small organisation with limited crew, we rely heavily on partners’ financial contributions, and contributions in kind, to enable this exciting festival to happen every year.
