Volunteer for Winter Pride '19

Winter Pride is a week-long festival that celebrates the LGBTQ+ community and transofrms Queenstown into a dynamic and fun town (even more so than usual!). Our job is to make our guests feel welcome and at home.

Our aim is to show our visitors the best our town has to offer and to make them feel so welcome, they don’t want to leave!

We know that people love to help the community and get involved in these types of events and we realise there is a big commitment from you to us. We really do appreciate all the help we can get.

All volunteers will get one of our trendy Winter Pride Crew tee shirts, limited only to volunteers.

Mountain Volunteers will get a mountain pass and Pride Bus passes to ski or snowboard in their breaks for the days they are working on the mountain.

All volunteers will receive a special discounted rate to all the events and parties for themselves (depending on ticket availablity).

Volunteer signup is now closed.

If you have already volunteered or have a query about volunteering please contact volunteer@winterpride.co.nz.


Events Team

The events team make all our parties, dinners, lunches and events happen!! The roles involve hosting guests, running coat check, checking tickets at the door, looking after our DJ’s and talent and keeping the party pumping.
Most of these events are at night and we have so much fun hosting our guests at these events. Make sure you check out the themes of this year’s parties and get your costume ready.


Help us capture the memories and fun times throughout the festival!
We are looking for photographer to work on the mountain, during the events or the activities. If you are keen to build your portfolio and help capture this great event, then this will be a fun week for you.

Activities Team

If you love the outdoors then this is the role you’ve been looking for!
Throughout the week we have activities such as Frisbee Golf, Hiking & Mountain Biking that we need a team of people to host.

Airport Team

Help welcome our guests to Queenstown!
Most of our guests arrive from different countries and this will be the first time they have been to Queenstown. Welcome them with a smile and help them navigate to their hotel or accommodation.
