Commemorate the signing of the Treaty of Waitangi / Te Tiriti o Waitangi and celebrate the diversity and cultures of Queenstown Lakes.
This year's Waitangi Day event starts at 11:00am, on Earnslaw Park.
Bring your friends and whānau along to the park for when the day commences with official welcomes and waiata, performance and storytelling. The day will continue with cultural performances celebrating the diversity of Queenstown Lakes.
There will be plenty more to offer too with plenty of delicious kai options to satisfy your hunger – we encourage you to bring your own reusable containers and cups.
Fun for the tamariki will involve games, colouring-in, face painting and performance.
This year will feature weaving workshops from our talented weavers at the Creative Queenstown Arts and Crafts Market and plenty of arts and crafts from our local market throughout the day.
Bring a picnic blanket and chair and set in to enjoy a beautiful afternoon by the lake, surrounded by friends and family of the community.
Public parking will be free in Queenstown over the public holiday day!
The event will be alcohol-free, smoke/vape-free.
