Queenstown has become the go-to getaway for New Zealanders from all the way up north to the bottom of the south. While the town offers amazing attractions year-round, when there are events on, it gives you all the more reason to head there. Metropol has collated some of the most exciting upcoming events that you will not want to miss!
26 JULY – CARDRONA MOUNTAIN BIKES ON SNOW: You probably don’t have to think too hard about what this event involves. It’s fairly simple… a mass start, first to finish race divided into men and women. Entry is $25 – try not to break anything.
4 AUGUST – THE BIG BIKE FILM NIGHT 2020: Calling all cycling fanatics, we have the perfect night planed for you. Cosy up at the Crowne Plaza Hotel and view some of the best cycling short films from around the world. Tickets from $12.50 to $22.
21 AUGUST – THE REES CULINARY SERIES WITH FELTON ROAD: Five wines and five courses including a welcome drink and canapes! If you weren’t sold on the event by now, maybe the stunning panoramic views at The Rees Hotel will be the selling point.
19-21 SEPTEMBER – DAGG’S QUEENSTOWN OPEN: If you’re a super fan of rugby and golf, then we have the perfect weekend for you! Spend three nights at the Novotel in Queenstown (breakfast included) and get out on the green with Israel Dagg himself.
24 SEPTEMBER – SPREAD THE JAM: A great mixture of burlesque, drag, comedy and circus makes for a winning combination. This 18+ show sounds like a whole lot of fun, we just wish it was making its way to Christchurch.
5 OCTOBER – THE SHOWS MUST GO ON: This is an open call for all musical theatre lovers. Enjoy a night out listening to an all-star cast of New Zealand’s finest singing some of the best of Broadway. This is set to be a showstopper.
